Shawn Ashmore Promises More Action For Iceman In Days Of Future Past


icemanBryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men inbetweequel seems to be shaping up to be a crowd-pleaser. The footage shown at Comic-Con and a few other film festivals over the past few months have been met with rave reviews.  About 40 seconds of the teaser leaked on line, and it looked very promising. With all the viral marketing and Bryan Singer’s Twitter teasers, everyone seems to be looking for any and all clues as to what’s in store. At Fan Expo this past weekend in Canada, Shawn Ashmore hinted at some big things for Bobby Drake in Days of Future Past.

iceman ice formShawn Ashmore, along with his brother Aaron, took part in a 45-minute panel at Fan Expo where the duo took questions from the audience. Shawn was asked about Days of Future Past and what he would be doing in the film. He couldn’t reveal too much, but what he did say should please Iceman fans:

I can’t say too much, but I can honestly say I walked in on the first day of shooting and the sets were ten times bigger than anything we did in the first three movies. The cast is amazing. The stuff that I got to do, personally, I’d been wanting action-wise to have Bobby be able to do [some action scenes.] I love it. […] It almost feels like a family reunion. We have Bryan Singer back who is probably the only person I trust to tell this story. I trust him with Days Of Future Past and I’m really stoked and I think you guys will love it.

Fans were excited to see Bobby take on the ice form in X3, but it was only shown for all of a minute on screen. With such a large cast and a messy script, there wasn’t much of a chance for Iceman to make an impact. With Days of Future Past, it sounds like we’ll see Ashmore doing a little more action. Hopefully this means we see a lot more of his ice form. You can read a rundown of the full panel from CBM’s Alex Lynch by clicking here.
