Best Avengers : X-Men: Days of Future Past
Uniting three very different strands of a long-in-the-tooth franchise with an uneven track record: Future Past could’ve been a last-chance cash-grab. (Don’t even mention the fuzzy time-travel science.) Instead, director Bryan Singer tweaked the franchise-mash model perfected by 2012’s Avengers, turning the seventh X-Men film into a swan song for the original (future) X-Men, a showcase for the new (past) X-Men, and an opportunity for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine to stab people wearing ’70s clothes.
