Subtitle X Men Days Of Future Past 2014 The Rog... [2021]


X-Men: Days of Future Past, the direct sequel to The Last Stand, was released on May 23, 2014, with Jackman, Berry, Stewart, McKellen, Paquin, Page, Ashmore, Cudmore, Grammer, Janssen, and Marsden reprising their respective roles.[145] The plot, inspired by the comic book "Days of Future Past" story arc, begins with a dystopian future set years after The Last Stand. Wolverine's consciousness is sent back in time, to his 1973 body in order to guide the younger Xavier and Magneto into preventing the events that lead to the desolate future. The events of the film end up retroactively changing the continuity of the series, changing some events in films set after First Class, resulting in an altered timeline where Jean and Cyclops are still alive.[38][128]




subtitle X Men Days of Future Past 2014 The Rog...



The MonsterVerse Godzilla is the second incarnation of Godzilla to be featured in an American-made film, after the TriStar Godzilla from the 1998 film. A colossal apex predator hailing from a time in Earth's past where surface radiation levels were considerably higher, Godzilla retreated deep underwater to feed on the planet's natural geothermal radiation when the surface radiation levels decreased. He occasionally surfaced throughout history, inspiring some of humanity's mythology. In the 20th century, the advent of the nuclear age drew Godzilla to the surface along with the deadly Shinomura, attracting the attention of the American military, which carried out a campaign of nuclear strikes against the two clashing monsters in the South Pacific under the guise of nuclear testing. While Shinomura was vaporized by the blast of the Castle Bravo hydrogen bomb, Godzilla survived and vanished up until 2014 when parasitic creatures from his time period dubbed MUTOs were unleashed and prepared to begin reproducing. Godzilla hunted the MUTOs down to San Francisco, where he engaged in a protracted battle that ended when he killed them both and returned to the ocean. After subsequently slaying the MUTOs' mother, MUTO Prime, Godzilla disappeared into the depths of the ocean for five years, though Monarch kept tabs on him.


While fruitlessly searching through the ruins of San Francisco for their missing son Andrew in 2014, Mark Russell and his wife Emma and their daughter Madison witnessed Godzilla walk past them. Mark grew to blame Godzilla for the loss of his son and resigned from Monarch, maintaining a desire to have the monster killed. The U.S. government and a large portion of the public grew to feel the same way following the devastating events in San Francisco. After five years, Godzilla had seemingly disappeared. Monarch's Dr. Ishiro Serizawa, Vivienne Graham, and Sam Coleman appeared before a Senate hearing to discuss the organization's future. The government and military expressed a desire to exterminate Godzilla and all of the other Titans like him, but Serizawa and Graham insisted that the solution was to find a way to coexist with Godzilla and other possibly benevolent Titans in a sort of symbiotic relationship. Monarch soon faced a bigger crisis, as they learned that Emma and Madison had been kidnapped from Outpost 61 in China along with Emma's sonar device, the ORCA. They brought Mark with them to their underwater headquarters in Bermuda, Outpost 54, a.k.a. Castle Bravo. From there, they covertly had been observing Godzilla on his own turf. Inside Castle Bravo, Monarch determined that Emma and Madison had been abducted by Col. Alan Jonah, a British Army colonel-turned eco-terrorist bent on restoring the natural order. Evidently, he intended to use the ORCA to achieve his goal. While Monarch attempted to decipher where Jonah had brought the ORCA, the base detected Godzilla approaching unusually close. Readings of the monster showed his breathing and heart rate were elevated, and he seemed ready to attack the base. Members of Monarch's G-Team manned the base's Maser Turrets and prepared to open fire, but Mark convinced them to stand down and lower the base's shields to signal to Godzilla that they were not a threat. As the shields were lowered, Godzilla could be seen swimming just outside the base, his dorsal fins emitting a periodic blue flash, which Graham identified as an intimidation display. Mark approached the window to get a better look, as the glow faded and Godzilla vanished into the blackness. Suddenly, Godzilla charged past the base and swam off. Mark asked to view Godzilla's movement routes, saying that if he left his territory it was because he must have felt threatened. Mark believed this could be because he detected the ORCA. Monarch's course projections showed Godzilla heading to a single location: Antarctica. The members of Monarch boarded the flying command ship the USS Argo and followed Godzilla to Antarctica. Graham explained to Mark that Antarctica was the location of Outpost 32, an off-the-books outpost in which Monarch studied a recently-uncovered specimen which Emma called "Monster Zero," possibly a rival alpha to Godzilla in the ancient past. Godzilla soon vanished from tracking, which Dr. Rick Stanton took to mean he was using passages within the Hollow Earth to navigate underwater more quickly.


See also Next Sunday A.D., which is completely indistinguishable from the present, but claims to be happening in the future anyway. How much Applied Phlebotinum it takes to flip Next Sunday A.D. into full-scale Twenty Minutes into the Future is an interesting question, since many stories employing cutting-edge fictional technology are actually set in the present (for instance, lots of superhero stories). Can result in I Want My Jetpack if the writers set the work not sufficiently far into the future, and the year the work was set in arrives in Real Life without any of the new technology featured. Compare to Urban Fantasy as the magical version. If you want to know a more "reversed" version of this trope (futuristic technology in the past), see Schizo Tech. Inverted by 20 Minutes into the Past.


  • Comic Books Grim and gritty superhero comic Batman: The Dark Knight Returns took place twenty minutes into a future in which Batman has retired.

  • Likewise, numerous other "grim and gritty" superhero comics influenced by Watchmen and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

  • The DC Comics crossover Armageddon 2001, released in 1991. When 2001 rolled around, none of the future events happened (and because of the floating timeline, the crossover could no longer have really happened in 2001 anyway).

  • Deathlok, a Marvel Comics character, is a time-traveling Cyborg from the 1990s, where civilization has been almost destroyed by nuclear war. In 1974 when the character was created, this seemed plausible, but by this point, he's had more than one major retcon. Which is a weird one. Obviously, cyborgs were not running around in Real Life in the '90s but in the Marvel Universe, cyborgs were quite common, among other things.

  • Kingdom Come takes place an indeterminate amount of time in the future of The DCU. This is noticeable less through advanced technology (since there was already plenty of that) and more through the aging of characters.

  • In one old comic book, aliens show up to a futuristic-looking Earth and contact the planet. When nobody answers, they take it as an insult and attack. In the last panel, we learn that humans are now living on Mars, and Earth has been uninhabited since the Nuclear War of 2000.

  • The X-Men story Days of Future Past, released in 1981, depicted a dystopian future in 2013.

  • The timeline of the Grendel series starts in the present day, becomes this trope for the Christine Spar story arc and its immediate aftermath, and then leaps ahead several generations for the Grendel-spirit's later incarnations.

  • The Highwaymen is about a pair of retired badasses from the late 20th century who have to get back together for one more job in 2022.

  • Commando had a series set soon where war was effectively outlawed. Instead, nations solved their issues using virtual reality.

  • American Flagg! is set in a dystopian (and eerily prescient in some ways) 2031.

  • Elvis Shrugged, an Alternate History Affectionate Parody of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, was published in 1993 and set in 1997.

  • Judge Dredd is set 122 years in an alternate future, and the character ages in real-time, meaning that number never changes. It also means that as of 2021, Dredd himself has aged 44 years since his inception in 1977.

  • The original Star-Lord stories took place in the early '90s (the comics themselves began publication in 1976), but this was retconned to the present when the character entered the mainstream Marvel Universe during Annihilation. Star-Lord was later given a revised origin in Guardians of the Galaxy that removed all of these aspects.

  • Pastitos Grandes from Puerto Rico Strong takes place in 2062. The clothing hasn't changed much since 2018, but people can use VR glasses to transport themselves into life-like versions of the past and there's now a space elevator.

  • Sensation Comics: Astra, Girl of the Future takes place in the far-flung future year of 2150, where humans have colonized most of the solar system and possess personal voice activated jets capable of spaceflight instead of cars. Regular news seems to have been superseded by live vlogs, as the main character does her newscasts by just leaving her camera-like device worn about her neck on and broadcasting while investigating things and going on adventures.

  • Paperinik New Adventures have a bit of variety with this, due to different authors and writers. Obviously the titular hero uses tech that's futuristic even in-universe, and commercial technology seems to roughly be on par with our own at the time of the comic's release (1998-2001), but the military makes use of mechs and space exploration has reached the point of manned missions to the rings of Saturn. There is also some commercially used advanced tech, such as Channel 00's camera suits (though they appear to be the only ones that make use of them) and holograms are used for advertisement, but still recent enough to be described as high-tech and be showed of at expos.
