X-Men: Days of Future Past Adds Previous X-Men Star, Twilight Actor, Iron Man 3 Actress

My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

Instead of releasing a single name on Twitter, director Bryan Singer decided to tweet a single picture containing 16 pictures. They were headshots of X-Men: Days of Future Past actors and fans noticed a few new faces in the group. 

Left to right in the top row are actors already announced: Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoyMichael Fassbender, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellan, Nicholas HoultPeter Dinklage, Halle Berry, and Ellen Page. The second row shows Shawn Ashmore, Omar SyAnna Paquin, and then the three newcomers.

The first is Daniel Cudmore, the actor who played Colossus in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, and Felix in the Twilight Saga. Next up is Fan Bingbing, the Chinese actress currently set to star in Iron Man 3 but who will play the mutant Blink in Days of Future Past. And finally another Twilight actor, Booboo Stewart, in an unspecified role.

Of course we must note the obvious, there are six pictures missing if this set is to be filled. Will we see more familiar names returning or new mutants (or non-mutants) joining the ranks? We found out just this past week Alan Cumming, who played Nightcrawler, definitely won’t be back. Any actor or mutant you’re hoping to see this time around?
