3 More X-Men Confirmed For 'Days of Future Past' Movie

The director announces a trio of characters that'll return to the roster! Come find out if it's one of your favorites!

X-Men: Days of Future Past is turning out to be one big reunion movie for the original X-Men crew. Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) has hinted about returning and both Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier) are confirmed. Now we can add 3 more names to the list thanks to director Bryan Singer: Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), and Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde).

Are you happy to see these characters from the original trilogy return and is there anyone else you'd want to see come back? I'm rooting for Colossus. It's fitting since he was in the source material and barely had any screen time in the original trilogy. Also, what new characters would you want to see in this one?

X-Men: Days of Future Past will hit theaters in 2014.

Very interesting stuff, this is going to be a crazy movie one way or the other.

i'd like to see cyclops too.

Posted by feargalr

This is great! It'll probably be a small role, but still having some continuity with the other movies is a great thing.


Please please please Bryan Singer use time travel to retcon the last stand and lead into a new present day X-Men movie!

Anna Paquin and Ellen Page >:D

Glad to see these characters return. I am very excited to see what they do with this movie

Posted by GothamRed

neat, will rogue have her powers back? Also will Iceman not be lame this time?

Posted by sora_thekey

ELLEN PAGE!!!!!!!!!

This movie is NOW complete...

Posted by Falconer

Ugh, the only thing worst than third movie was Rogue in general. No thanks.

Posted by DimGre

What about Storm???

Posted by Watcherg6

I hope they add new Mutants also.

Posted by Mr. Kamikaze

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and predict that this dark future they will be traveling to is really just the original trilogy time period.

Halle Berry please. : )

It' d be nice if they stick to source material, seriously! Especially since it hasn't happened in the previous X movies, characters and all. I 'll wait for them to show this one on cable too, I already dislike the characters involved, well not all of them but a few. I f Colossus doesn't make the cut I will not watch the movie!

Edited by Boumei

I'm now less excited about seeing this movie... but it would be nice to see Ellen Page back as Kitty Pride.

and another thing I noticed is that besides James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) & Nicholas Hoult (Beast), no one else has been announced as returning from First Class... all announcements have been mostly cast members from the original trilogy returning so it's starting to feel more like X-Men 4 (with the First Class sequel serving more as a flashback)

I like the characters but I wasn't a fan of their portrayals in the films.

Want Colossus

Posted by Phaedrusgr

We, no, no...DEMAND Colossus!

Posted by The Average Bear

I was wondering what they would do about Kitty. Too bad Anna Paquin is horrible. But Iceman will be fun to see

@eiderglast: Cyclops has to be still alive! Jean did the same thing to Charles and he's some how still alive.

Posted by BenReilly

This pleases me. =^.^=

Posted by Kiddevil

Awesome Ice man is awesome.

Posted by ccraft

@evilvegeta74: pfff.. Whats the big fuss for Colossus for? He didn't have a big part in the trio, and what I can remember is that he was only in the 3rd one. Sure he looked cool as Colossus, and the graphics for him would probably look way better in 2014 than it did in the 3rd movie. I guess it would be cool :P

Anyways wasn't Rogue cured? Or will the cure wear off like it did to Magneto?

Posted by markslurpee

Am I only one who thinks Ellen Page doesn't fit for Kitty?

And that Anna Paquin is horrible?


Posted by Gen_Xmen

Storm better be in this movie! like badass mohawk Storm. Zoe Saldana would be a Hot Storm.

Anna Paquin again sux! God she is the worst. I was praying for a recast... What about Bishop?

Posted by EnSabahNurX

I just got very excited for this movie XD

Posted by LoganRogue24

i hope they finaly do Wolverine and Rogue as a couple her and iceman sucked.

Posted by TheJester

I really want Toad. xD Kinda wish they'd gotten someone new for Rogue.

Edited by Arcadian

Lol, Shawn Ashmore just changed his twitter pic to Iceman.

Posted by TwistedBishop

Please never thank Ratner for anything.

Posted by telepathic666

@jhazzroucher: Gina Torres should do storm if they can find a way to make her worth putting in

Posted by sora_thekey

That's it... I'm buying the X-Men: Days of the Future Past trade!

Posted by monopolyloser

Hopefully they'll get Ben Foster back to redeem Angel in this movie

Posted by StormyWeather

@jhazzroucher: no...

Posted by comicfan123

Huh. So no one's mentioned Angel, who was one of the original five X-Men and was only in The Last Stand (which was a bad X-Men movie, anyway) and, in my opinion, deserves another chance at redemption, along with Darwin?

Says who? It's a time travel story, remember? it's more than likely that the First Class crew simply encounters Charles at a point in time before he dies.

Edited by GREGalicious

Im excited to see them back particularly Kitty. Hopefully, they will give Rogue and Iceman's personalities more of the "spunk" they have in the comic. They were still far to wimpy in the films. I would love to see a lot more of Jubilee in the films as well. She is at least a fun character. Whatever the case, im at least confident Bryan Singer will bring good things to the film.

PS: Im still silently weeping for Jean and wishing for her return...

Posted by Mia26

No, why not just start all over with X-Men first class movie as the first ?

You disgrace that name. Anna Paquin ia beautiful and amazing.

Posted by blur1528

Bring on Marsden!!!

Posted by Cavemold

i can dig it

Posted by mattwing87

We better see James Mardsen, Halley Berry and the guy who played Colossus as well. Wouldn't hurt to have Famke Janessen or whatever back either!

Screw Rogue, she's powerless

I wouldn't mind seeing Kitty and Bobby again though

Posted by KomicKev

Did nobody here read "Days of Future Past"? Granted, I don't imagine the movie will even remotely resemble the comic story (but one can hope, can't one?), but most of these characters: Jubilee, Rogue, Iceman, Cyclops, Jean Grey . . . None of them were in the story. If you've never read this classic story - - find it, read it . . . then come back and list your dream team wish list!

Posted by nappystr8

Awesome, Iceman is one of my favorites, and I just saw Shawn Ashmore in The Following this week and thought about how I'd like to see him in more things. Ellen Page is a HUGE get, considering how Kitty Pryde is basically the star of DOFP. I wasn't sure if they would be able to get her, since her career has taken off quite a bit since The Last Stand came out. And it would have sucked to have a replacement actress. With these additions to the cast it is clear that Fox is really putting their all into making this film great. I just hope there is enough time in the film to give to the extended cast members of First Class as well though.

Posted by DaltonMunnal

Every piece of news I hear about this movie makes me more excited. Haters gonna hate.

Posted by BoyWander

I am glad Kitty Pryde is still Ellen Page. They've changed her actress so many times I was worried.
