Last week, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer took to his Twitter account to drop a bit of news in regards to the upcoming sequel, which seems to be the trend with him. In doing so, he gave fans some pretty big news. First off, Daniel Cudmore was pictured, confirming that he’d be returning to reprise his role as Colossus in the film. Also in the picture, which you can check out below, were two new faces, one of which was Booboo Stewart of Twilight fame. The other being Bingbing Fan who will be playing Blink in the film.
We still don’t know who Stewart will be playing in the film and in this latest video, he talks with ClevverMovies about the upcoming film and his involvement. Unfortuneatley, he doesn reveal who he will be playing, but he does say he’s been working hard on improving his physique, adding about 50 pounds since January. There have been rumors floating around regarding who he will be playing and if you want my take, check out my editorial explaing why I think he’ll be playing Forge. Another option would be Thunderbird, who had a short stint with the X-Men. Check out the video for more!
Days of Future Past is gearing up to begin shooting soon, so we should have more info regarding Stewart’s role, as well as the remaining cast, which if you look at the image below, there looks to be about six empty spots, so we could have more characters coming along. As it stands now, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Shawn Ashmore, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry and Peter Dinklage are official. Fans would love to see James Marsden and Famke Janssen reprise their roles of Cyclops and Jean Grey, but that would take a bit of work seeing as they were both killed off in The Last Stand, but with Patrick Stewart returning to play an older Professor X, they may still show up.
