In order to prevent a grim future in which mutants and their human sympathizers are systematically hunted and killed by towering unstoppable robots called Sentinels Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travels back in time to change the course of history in this sequel that finds X-MEN and X2: X-MEN UNITED director Bryan Singer returning to the helm. The film opens in a dark and desolate future that was set in motion in 1973 when brilliant scientist Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) created a series of giant robots called Sentinels for the sole purpose of wiping out mutants whom he claimed was a direct threat to the human race. Although initially programmed solely to target mutants the Sentinels soon began eradicating humans who possessed the DNA to breed mutants and eventually any mortal mutant sympathizers. Desperate Prof. Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) devise a plan to have Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) send Wolverine back to the year when Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) assassinated Trask -- it turns out that Mystique inadvertently accelerated the Sentinel program when she was subsequently captured by Sgt. William Stryker (Josh Helman) who succeeded at harvesting her DNA to make the robots more powerful than ever before. Upon arriving in the past Wolverine quickly seeks out a much younger Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) as well as Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and together they help break a young Magneto (Michael Fassbender) out of a heavily fortified prison cell hundreds of feet beneath the Pentagon. Meanwhile with the help of Havok Ink Toad and Spike Mystique is already moving in for the kill. Although Wolverine Beast Charles and Magneto manage to thwart the assassination Charles and Magneto once again find themselves at odds after the latter attempts to alter the plan at the last moment creating a mass panic during a post-Vietnam War peace summit in Paris. And Dr. Trask still fuming from having had the Sentinel program rejected by Congress takes his proposal directly to President Nixon (Mark Camacho) laying the groundwork for an even darker future than the one Wolverine was sent back to prevent.
- Convinced that mutants pose a threat to humanity Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) develops the Sentinels enormous robotic weapons that can detect a mutant gene and zero in on that person. In the 21st century the Sentinels have evolved into highly efficient killing machines. With mutants now facing extinction Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) volunteers to go back in time and rally the X-Men of the past to help change a pivotal moment in history and thereby save their future.
