Minor X-Men: Days of Future Past SPOILERS below - though fewer than the most recent trailer.

Many of us were surprised by the most recent [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942) trailer, in which Charles Xavier - as played by James McAvoy - seems very much able to walk - and producer SImon Kinberg says that's just the beginning.

Speaking to IGN, Kinberg has revealed that "why young Xavier's not in the wheelchair is a big part of the story and his arc over the span of the movie", and that much of the story is focused on his "accepting his place in the chair."

He goes on to suggest that the film is "the story of young, broken, messed up Xavier - Charles - becoming Professor X. His arc - his emotional arc - is sort of the foundation of the movie."

Kinberg has also admitted that the plot itself will respond to Jennifer Lawrence's fame, with Mystique being "the person around whom the plot rotates." He goes on to suggest that "the struggle of the movie is, is she the Raven that Charles raised, or is she the Mystique that Erik wanted to turn her into?"

All of which suggests a much less Wolverine-centric plot than the trailer hinted at - one that should provide a natural emotional follow up to X-Men: First Class.

What do you guys think? Should the film focus so much on Charles and Raven? Let me know below!
