Twitter's a beautiful thing, isn't it? Marc Webb has been tweeting from the set of Amazing Spider-Man 2 every day, and director Bryan Singer has been dropping plenty of news for his comic book movie on the social media site, too. He previously used his Twitter page to announce returning actors and bits of the set, and today he revealed even more characters are being added to the film!

Daniel Cudmore -- who played as Colossus in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand -- is on the wall. This is fantastic news seeing as the character does indeed play a big part in the source material and, to be blunt, barely got any screen time in the previous films. Hopefully this means we'll witness the Russian destroy a Sentinel or two.

Fan Bingbing is also posted to the wall and The Hollywood Reporter claims she'll play as Blink, the teleporter originally from the Age of Apocalypse universe. Also in the image is Booboo Stewart. Any guesses on who he'll play, Viners?

Forge perhaps

AWESOME!!! Love Daniel Cudmore as Colossus. Now I just need Taylor Kitsch as Gambit aaaand James Marsden as Cyclops. That would be the perfect X-Men Movie for me, I guess!

Big fan of AoA Blink. I have no idea why they would throw her into the story. Hopefully it doesnt become an "lets cram as many of them as we can" into one movie thing.

I think this movie might suffer from T.M.S.G.O(To Much Shit Going On).

#5 Posted by RavenVice01 (158 posts) - - Show Bio

Boo Boo Stewart could definitely play Sunspot since they both look alike.

Probably need a teleporter since Azazel won't be back and nightcrawler isn't looking likely. I'm just happy to see blink make her debut into the movie franchise hopefully with a better outcome than Psylocke.

Sounds congested.

And that's worrisome.

Oh Booboo...I feel so bad for him having that name. But out of curiosity how many more people are going to be in this movie?

#10 Posted by Sleepbutnodream15 (556 posts) - - Show Bio

Not everyone is gonna be playing a major role.

I've been a Blink fan for a longtime. AoA was the last big comic story I remember collecting in grade school.

I love all the concern over the cast being large. No where does it say these people are getting equal face time, cause no offense until today I had never heard of Booboo Stewart or Fan BingBing. Most likely they may get a little time but nothing too huge.

#16 Posted by TheCowman (461 posts) - - Show Bio

Blink in Days of Future Past?

So I take it this will follow the previous movies' tradition of "plug random X-character into random cast slot".

I'm not saying the movie's gonna be bad or anything, but I've just had no enthusiasm for this movie so far and this doesn't change that.

"Fan Bingbing" and "Booboo Stewart"

...you can't make this $#!7 up

The cast for this movie is amazing!

#19 Posted by Baddamdog (2222 posts) - - Show Bio

Forge, Warpath or Thunderbird would be my guesses. Probably Forge seeing as there'll be some technology involved in creating Sentinels/Time travel machines blah blah.

Plus my first guess for Fan was going to be an older Jubilee, but with no Azael or Nightcrawler (allegedly), it looks like they're gonna need a teleporter.

Nice. I can't wait for the rest!

#21 Edited by FoxxFireArt (3536 posts) - - Show Bio

I do love me some Blink, but how much will she look like Blink is another question. They did manage to screw up Emma in the last film.

I went to look up Fan Bingbing's credits. Seems she has some kind of role in IRON MAN 3.

#22 Posted by Perfect 10 (865 posts) - - Show Bio

love blink but are they going to go all the way with her make-up wise? hope they make her look good and badass like in AoA

#23 Posted by Perfect 10 (865 posts) - - Show Bio

booboo stewart??? wow he has grown up. glad to see him in a major picture. the only male japanese x-man is sunfire unless they are going the routes of casting and just cast who they think fit the role

#24 Posted by Jazon (16 posts) - - Show Bio

I wish this movie will fail so horribly that Marvel can buy the license back at a cheap price.

#25 Posted by alex6166 (64 posts) - - Show Bio

A lot of people wanted Blink to come back. Maybe wasted potential there. Who knows?

#26 Posted by evilvegeta74 (4520 posts) - - Show Bio

It's disrespectful that Colossus wasn't cast before Rogue, who wasn't once again in an original comic book story,which is produced by Fox. Hopefully we actually get to see a beeter looking Colossus doing what he normally does in Xmen comics.

Who is Peter Dinklage playing?!?!

#28 Edited by SpitfireINK (242 posts) - - Show Bio

Sounds like Blink is the similar drivel that Singer added with the Magneto Mutant Maker on top of the Stature Liberty -

in the first X-Men movie that really kept the movie from greatness.

Don't get me wrong - Blink is a very strong character to add - but the Claremont/Byrne story was very solid and should be an easy adaptation - and I don't care for the notion that Singer is mucking about with it.

Although I did enjoy both of the first 2 X-Men movies. (And loved X-MEN: First Class).

I just don't think Singer has it in him to produce a truly great X-MEN film.

- Just look at how bad SUPERMAN Returns is - it was everything that was classically wrong with Superhero movies -

Singer had a good foundation as to where to start the first 2 X-Men movies - How he implemented them and how successful they really are is very debatable. --- LIke I said --- the Merry Magneto Mutant Maker --- uggh!

I definitely don't have any issues with the Casting -- All of the Actors have brought their A game to the franchise - I worry about how the Story will be interpreted and the shaky success of the director involved. (At least its not Ratner).

Ohhh, Blink how i loved you. Barely got to see any 616 Blink. Curious how this will work out. I also didn't know she was supposed to be Chinese. I love X-men, but i haven't been biggest fan of the movies so far. Still I will watch.

#30 Posted by Cafeterialoca (1501 posts) - - Show Bio

I was apathetic about this movie, but Blink is one of my favorite X-Men characters. So yeah,I'm actually excited now.

I remember seeing pictures of actors taped to the wall like this when I was a PA on the Box Boarders movie. Fun.

Hey Singer do you remember a great thing about First Class? It was that it used an entirely new cast. But good job on ruining a film that's barely even started. Especially hiring a dwarf to be some ominous villain. That really is a complete kick in the face.

#37 Posted by Oscars94 (2012 posts) - - Show Bio

What?! Nightcrawler's not going to be in this film? Well, that's bad. Well, at least Colossus is in this film! Now, we just have to see where this story is going to go and I agree that there are too many characters in this film at the moment. I wonder how Singer is going to juggle all of these characters?

Word for word. Love Blink and AoA. They are no doubt going to fuck her up but its nice seeing her get some love.

Looks like they are casting six more roles. Hopefully Polaris and Rachel are in the mix.

#48 Posted by KomicKev (79 posts) - - Show Bio

Here's my guess, a lot of mutants may mean some cannon fodder for the Sentinels (assuming of course, there WILL be Sentinels). Some of these characters/actors may just be in the background or making cameo appearances. If there is some sort of concentration camp scenario, these "who are they going to be?" actors may be roaming around in there.

Ohhhh I'm so happy to see Colossus in this movie but, where f#ç!%@! are Banshee and Havok??? Why they are gone...?!

#50 Posted by Oscars94 (2012 posts) - - Show Bio

@OneyedJacks: Yes I agree, in order to make this movie great you need to have the past and future characters to have a connection. Nightcrawler should see Azazel and Mystique, Cyclops could see Havok. Also a team with people with similar powers e.g Riptide and Storm. Banshee and Angel could be seen flying around together, it would look so cool. Man, I wish I was directing this... Also I want to see Colossus smashing up some Sentinels!
