The final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, because I can’t get enough of time traveling mutants

In which Wolverine travels 50 years into the past to try and get the younger versions of Xavier, Magneto, Beast et al to join together against Trask and his Sentinel army. My only lingering question is how the writers have handled Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask— that is, Dinklage is a terrific actor, and I think it was incredible for him to get cast in such a high profile “non-midget” role, but on the other hand, there seems to be an obvious built-in character story when you cast a person with an actual physical, full body mutation such as dwarfism in the role of a character who builds an army of giant robots to defeat mutants, and I hope that doesn’t get too stupid, as in “Trask is just pissed because he’s just a normal short mutant, not a super-powered mutant, so he builds giant robots… didn’t see that one coming.”

JACKALOPE

[noun]

a mythical animal of North American folklore (a so-called “fearsome critter”) described as a jackrabbit with antelope horns or deer antlers and sometimes a pheasant’s tail (and often hind legs). The word “jackalope” is a portmanteau of “jackrabbit” and “antalope”, an archaic spelling of “antelope”. It is also known asLepus temperamentalus.

It is possible that the tales of jackalopes were inspired by sightings of rabbits infected with the Shope papilloma virus, which causes the growth of horn- and antler-like tumors in various places on the rabbit’s head and body.
