Director Bryan Singer sure loves teasing us via Twitter. He's used his page to reveal the return of cast members, costumes, and even the addition of new characters. And today, he once again presented the addition of even more mutants to the really, really, reallllllllllly large cast. Watch the Vine video HERE to see the two new dudes joining the fray.

Did you catch that? If not, he's publicly welcoming Bishop and Warpath to the film. Bishop certainly makes sense seeing as we're dealing with time travel and what not, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. Attempting to properly juggle such a large group of characters certainly won't be easy by any measure (unless quite a few have trivial roles, of course). Regardless, only time will tell if the final product rocks or leaves us disappointed. In the meantime, who do you think is a good casting choice for either character? Speak your mind below.

Oh, and in case you missed it, he also tweeted an image of Storm the other day.

I really hope a lot of these characters being cast are just in the background or is used as some kind a flash back scene. because I love x-men and even I think he has way to many character in this movie.

I can see a lot of these confirmed mutants as background characters. Colossus was in the prior X-Men movies briefly, but I loved seeing him for those few minutes. It made the universe feel more complete.

Bishop? He is not from the Days of Future Past story. Oh geez, they are doing what Kyle/Yost did in Wolverine and the X-Men and combining the two universes or what X-Men TAS did with Bishop (which wasn't a good thing).

sure are a lot of characters. At least Wolverine won't be in this to take up the whole movie. Should be interesting because of that alone. Still. Sure are a lot of cameos. Can someone please give me a quick rundown of all the characters in the movie already? Make a list.

@jamdamage: Wolverine's in it. The very first one they showed was Logan.

I can see Bishop in it. Warpath is a cool character, but I'm surprised they included him. I had no idea Blink was in it until this video. Not too thrilled about that. Nothing against Blink, but I can think of a whole bunch of characters who haven't appeared that I'd rather see. But I suppose some people would like to see her.

I was initially worried when the cast grew, but now it's grown so far beyond what you're even trying to achieve with a smaller ensemble movie, into what I can only assume is a very different style of storytelling, in terms of super hero movies.

It's definitely not uncommon for movies, generally, to have casts this big, and if you treat these characters less like stories in themselves, and more as players in a larger story - who just happen to be super powered - it makes a lot more sense. I think the main worry at this point is how randomly this movie seems to have become significantly bigger than was originally planned. If it wasn't thought out properly beforehand, but rather a story that has now been stretched to accommodate a bajillion random cameos, then that's problematic to say the least.

I will say, however, that the strength of the original X-Men films was - among other things - its cavalier attitude to the powers that these characters have. There were rarely closeups of a certain power being used, and the fact that they're superhuman was almost played down to a level where it didn't seem strange or even noteworthy, because to them, the characters themselves, it wasn't. A movie like this doesn't need to give each character a Wrestling intro style setup, they can play their parts and their role in the story can be established the same way any other movie does it. It's a different climate nowadays among moviegoers, too - you don't need to sell them on the fundamental concept of super powers any more, and that means you can make less of a fuss about it.

As for Halle Berry, I don't mind her acting skills per se. Her on screen presence just isn't even remotely commanding enough to pull these roles off. Her action face makes her look confused and annoyed, and her tension face is pure deer-in-headlights. I recall Fox throwing the name Rutina Wesley around, which frankly would make absolutely zero difference. So, hey, at least we're not missing out anyway.

don't see how they can make this work. Random mutants with one/two lines will just cheapen the experience for me. Like in Wolverine Origins when they shoved in that stupid Emma Frost, and that poor excuse for a Gambit

Singer also tweeted a picture of Himself and a few castmates at a hockey game, included among them was Adan Canto *castmate of Shawn Ashmore on The Following* who himself tweeted that he may be playing a mutant that bursts into a ball of fire when he gets angry. Canto is Mexican. Fire powers + xman + hispanic + anger issues = Sunspot

Warpath... Hmm? How does he fit in??
Bishop makes sense.. It was either that or Rachel Grey and I don't think they want to touch the Phoenix again. Not yet anyways.

I am wondering if this is setting up a future X-Men: Age of Apocalypse movie since Blink is involved.

I was really hoping for Bishop to make the cut, and while Warpath never crossed my mind, he is a great character that I would love to see on the screen. So this is all good news.

I agree this is too many characters. I'm assuming me are gonna see characters that we didn't even know were there like in X-Men 3's Psylocke. It looks like this movie won't be so good....

@mickeymayhew: Yeah, I want Havok and Banshee to be in this movie.I wanted Cyclops to see his brother. When I saw that picture of Storm I though that maybe a good plot point would be that her design was a tribute for Banshee's costume. Beast is gonna be in it and he,Havok,Banshee and Charles Xavier were the only members of the X-men left in X-men First Class. It only makes sense to keep them in.

If we get old and new Xaviers and Magnetos, why have they only confirmed the new Beast? Shouldn't they wrangle Frasier into coming back?

Halle Berry, please take your millions, speak only when in front of the camera, and keep your ideas to yourself. Why does Storm have to have your crap hairstyle?!

I liked Fox's strategy of making every X-Men dress in a really lame super generic costume in every movie to make sure none of them look cool.

It's already been stated that Booboo Stewart was cast as Warpath and Omar Sy was cast as Bishop!

When they teased that image a few weeks back with the headshots of actors... only two were unconfirmed, but now they have been cast!

I imagine most of the original cast X-men are just going to be seen in a dystopia future, not through out the movie. I am reserving any judgement until we get trailers. Right now it seems like a lot of characters, but I doubt Booboo is getting tons of face time. Most likely most of these characters are going to be background or brief cameos for story purposes. I could see this movie with a lot of these characters fighting in the future but getting decimated, kinda like the start of the terminator movies where you see glimpses of the future.

I'm afraid that this movie will have several problems. One too many characters. I thought that X-Men: First Class had one or two too many. Also the whole time-travel along with many characters from different periods can make the movie confusing especially with people that don't know the original stories or have read the X-Men stories en general.

At least we won't have an X-3 situation where every mutant who wasn't a main character just looked like a homeless raver.

I am bit nervous about this (having too many characters in one film.) I can see and understand clearly if Singer is going for trilogy movies, rather than one-shot movie. Seeing Bishop on the screen would've been nice!

Im loving the group thus far but I dunno why people are complaining about too many characters. Bryan made it work just fine in X-Men, X2, and First Class and he'll do it again here. Plus im super excited about BLINK being in the film. I personally would love to see the return of CYCLOPS and JEAN but it is good to see some fresh faces as well.

Well, my guess of Bishop to be in Days of future past is an obvious answer. Anyone that was guessing, shoulda got this one right. But anyway, Storm's hair is..ewww!

Anyone guess who's gonna play the role for Bishop?

"Mama Crying"? No. It's more like we are very concerned about the balance time between characters on the big screen. And, quite frankly, we hate to see our favorite hero(es) only play a small role for the total of 2 to 5 minutes at most in the entire movie. It makes them look "cheap" and/or "unimportant" part of the story. Personal, I hate that myself and it's not a "mama-crying" as you've stated; it's a honest-feeling I have and need to express it out on the posts.

I'm just grateful someone decided to put Warpath & Bishop in the movie. My thing is be grateful that they even thought of these characters. Hell it's been how many movies & still no Scarlet Witch?
