With few days left for “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, we think we need to revisit previous X-Men movies for better clarity. Being a big fan of X-Men movies (thanks to Wolverine), I started to watch some X-Men animation movies as well, then I realised this is a big network full of interesting characters. Each and every character has an interesting past, like how they became mutant and how they ended up as X-Men.
We thought of making a list of X-Men movies in chronological order, so that you can check these movies first before watching the latest one. Bryan Singer directed most of the X-Men movies and he is also taking control of “Days of Future Past”.
