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.

So if it follows the original story at all it could be someone's mind going back in time to their younger self. The only options really are Xavier, Beast, Wolverine, Magneto or Mystique right? It would be interesting if each one of them gets a part of a plan from the future to save the past. And it could be used to rewrite history having Wolverine work with the X-Men much earlier. Too bad it would be hard to have that cause the original X-Men born earlier because I'd love for Xavier to bring teenaged Cyclops, Jean, Angel and Iceman together.

Nice. I hope each X-Men members will have plenty of their screen-time in a movie. That's a huge rosters right there, wow. Oh and as for Rogue, for God's sake, make her fly! She can fly on TV cartoons, in comic books and video games but not the movies. Doesn't make any sense.

And one last thing I want to say is: OMG!!!! WOLVERINE!!!!!!! Yay!!!

Ehhhh.... I want X-Men First Class 2 not X4. I'll give this movie a try, but I'm very cautious.

Hard to give her the power to fly without having her take it from someone else.

I want to see Cyclops as well.

I hope Ellen Page becomes a regular in the X-Men movies after this. Her performance was one of the few good things about The Last Stand.

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

My thoughts to I'm so happy for all the returning x men especially Ellen page as kitty pryde. days for filter past it gonna be awesomw

@ccraft: Charles transferred his mind into the comatose guy that was mentioned in the lecture at the beginning of the movie. Scott...didn't. It helps to go into situations with a contingency plan.

I wonder if it will have Franklin Richards in it.

Personally, I'd like to see Darwin return. Maybe take a page (no pun intended) from Deadly Genesis and have him be alive in the future having reformed his body after about, thirty years and he's in shock at the way things turned out since he "died" in the first film. And, if he does return, please don't kill him off after his first fifteen minutes (or however long he was in the film) on screen again. But please don't cram too many characters like in the third X-Men film which shall go unnamed.

Apart from the fact that I like Ellen Page, and I liked her and Shawn Ashmore as Kitty Pryde and Iceman, respectively, I don't really like this news. I haven't really liked the news that has made it seem like they're trying to go back to the original trilogy of films and connect it with First Class even further. One of the things I liked most about First Class was that it did something different as an X-Men film and provided a chance to get away from the first trilogy. To reboot the film franchise, if you will. And if I may be completely honest, I also find it a more than a bit disheartening that the general sentiment on here is one of excitement, as if X-Men: The Last Stand wasn't a horrible train-wreck of a film.

Actually, it does make sense. In the comics and even in the Fox Kids cartoon, Rogue was shown to have gotten the ability to fly (as well as her super-strength and stamina and what have you) from Carol Danvers (formerly Ms. Marvel, recently promoted to Captain). However, her contact with Ms. Marvel was too prolonged, which is why she kept those powers, and this also resulted with a copy of Danvers's mind residing in Rogue's for a while. This also helped lead her to defecting from the Brotherhood and becoming an X-Man.

Considering that basically none of that happened in the films, it does make a great lick of sense that she can't fly in them.

Also, and I really hate to be such a downer today and apologize for doing so, but no. Please, no. Wolverine was already the star of the first three movies, as well as his own line of ongoing spinoff films, the first of which was also actually rather horrible. Are we really that unable to make an X-Men movie without having Wolverine star in it? Joss Whedon understood the benefit of only using Wolverine in moderation, and that's something that I'm afraid the filmmakers and people at Fox (and Marvel, considering how completely oversaturated with Wolverine the Marvel Universe has been for a good long while) are not able to understand.

Looks to be another all white cast :L

Anna Pacquin?

Ugh. She was a terrible choice for Rogue...

Posted by JimmyOlsen1

Cyclops, Gambit and Colossus ... and maybe time travel so they can ordering the X-Men movieverse a little bit.

@ccraft said:

@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?

I still remember people freaking out in the second movie when Colossus showed up. Dude's got screen pop.

Yeah to Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore boo to Anna Paquin

Anna is fine

Gambit needs to be in this movie!!!!!!!

Colossus yeah so that we'll see Juggernaut too.

Posted by LordRequiem

Oh come now, I guess Singer missed that the best thing about X-men: First Class was that we could finally see some well cast characters. He's a complete moron for doing this. I now I really am worried.

@TheSwordsman: Can you think of many original or famous black X-men apart from Bishop? What a silly thing to focus on because there are so few anyway.

AWESOME!

I'd love to see a hot, blonde guy play Franklin. He gets incinerated, even with his reality altering powers, but that's fine.

Exactly.

Against Sentinels? Probably not.

Ha, that tweet was a huge f*ck you regarding the Cyclops and Xavier deaths.

love the dig at Brett Ratner, that man is an a**clown

Posted by Oscars94

What about Magneto's group? Will they appear? Will Nightcrawler return to see his father, Azazel and his mother Mystique? Will Cyclops get to see Havok? I hope both past and present teams get to work together.

@mattwing87: Well Famke is going to make an appearance in The Wolverine so assuming there all connected

X-men/mutants are metaphors for black Americans with Magneto being representative of Malcom X' and his ideology and Professor X's as a representation of Martin Luther King Jr and his. It is reprehensible for their not to be more black interesting mutants, or any other ethnicities for that matter.

Are you seriously going to use the fact that comic teams typically lack diversity as a defense against movies about comics not having enough diversity? So there is blatant bigotry in comics: ok, so lets continue with that self-same bigotry in the movies. Why do anything even remotely responsible to try and change that.

There aren't many famous black x-men because they aren't created or they are not written well or given enough positive exposure or they have lame powers and names and costumes..And, yeah, that guy in X-men first class, the one who could generate tornadoes, yeah he was really famous, that's why they had him in the movie. Can't remember his name though or remember reading about him in, like, anything, but, yeah, he is a really famous character.

I guarantee you that if the situations were reversed and there were very few white superheroes and most superheroe movies had no white superheroes or one token white hero you would be upset. You may lie and say you wouldn't be but you would. You simply lack any sort of empathy for anyone else, much in the way a psychopath does.

Posted by dangallant984

cool. let's hope they give Ellen Page a better role than she had in the Last Stand; she's great, and I love Kitty, but that flick stank on ice.

@FadeToBlackBolt: Well to be fair Pro X didn't die

Hopefully this film will have Magnetos theme

As long as Rogue as her powers back, and most if X3 is retconnned, I'll be happy :)

Random mutant named Carol comes up to Rogue and shakes her hand... Just then her powers come back and she cause the death of Carol who had flight and strenght powers. Fixed!

@GothamRed: @mattwing87: Considering that this is a time travel story it is possible that X3 could be written out of history.

I think it's strange there's been no word on bringing back Havok or Banshee. Has Xavier's first class graduated already? Surely they'll bring back Kelsey Grammer, to have the two Beasts share screen time. Imagine how the younger McCoy will feel when he sees his older self and realizes he's going to be blue and furry forever.

I also feel like Darwin has to return to put the lie to his death. Clearly his adaptive power would have allowed him to survive Shaw's attack. That's kind of the whole point of his power.

@TheSwordsman: There are more black mutants portrayed well in the comics then there are Avengers. In fact I'd say the X-Men are one of the most ethnically diverse teams in comics. It's just that the movies so far have focused on the earliest X-Men from the comics which were mainly Caucasian.

Yes!! Gina Torres would be amazing. I admit having a very not so small crush on her, but she is also a great actress : )

While there are more in the x-men rather than the Avengers there are still not enough in comic books in general and definitely not in superhero movies nor ones that have their own movies.

Earliest x-men and mutants huh? huh? Rogue? Pyro? Kitty Pryde? Mystique? Havok? These were hardly the earliest ones. not even close Nor were the villains the earliest ones: Azazel, Sebastian Shaw, Generic whirlwind guy, Emma frost? These are hardly early villains such as Magneto was. Your argument is invalid. With the exception of Storm and Darwin, who was the most interesting power-wise and they killed him off with something that he should have been able to easily adapt to, there were no other black heroes or villains. And why kill him off? He handled Havocs other blasts just fine: internal armor, absorbing the energy, expelling it, turning to Adamantium, there were so many ways he could have and should have survived. They chose to have all whites except for one woman and one they killed off early because of bigotry, blatant attempts at social engineering and insecurity. Period. Trying to pretend that it is anything else at this point is simply ludicrous.

So this movie has no relationship to First Class now?
