There has been plenty of talk about the familiar faces we will see return to the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past. We already know that actor Hugh Jackman will return to reprise the role of Wolverine, but that's not all. The upcoming film already has a massive, star-studded cast. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Ian McKellan, and Patrick Stewart among others are likely to appear in Days, but there are some popular characters who we may mot see make it to the big screen. Among them are actor Alan Cumming who played Nightcrawler in X2 and Halle Berry who played Storm in X-Men, X2, and X-Men: The Last Stand. So will these two very popular X-Men characters return for X-Men: Days Of Future Past?
The film's director Bryan Singer has been tweeting and teasing the return of many of these actors to their respective roles and has been vocal in regards to his excitement to be working on this film, but he hasn't really divulged any information in regards to whether or not these actors will reprise their respective roles in Days. When asked whether Berry would return as Storm, the director stated that he enjoyed working with her, but that things were still up in the air.
I can't say. I don't know yet. And it's not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it'll make sense. But I love working with her.
It seems though that the reason Singer doesn't know yet is because he is still working out the kinks of his script. In yet another interview with The Huffington Post, the director hinted that he wasn't sure of the direction he would be taking the film and therefore "doesn't know yet" if Nightcrawler would need to be involved.== TEASER ==
You know ... we'll see…Yeah, I know. I don't want to ... sometimes you don't want to say 'yes' or 'no' to something that may not be a 'yes' or a 'no,' or anything. I haven't decided yet, a few things. I'm still, you know — there are certain aspects of the script that I'm still toying with.
It sounds like things are early enough in production that we may yet see Storm and Nightcrawler in the movie, but what do you think? The cast is already pretty big, so should these two characters return to reprise their roles? Do you think we would need Nightcrawler and Storm in a X-Men: Days Of Future Past movie, why or why not?
