The casting news for X-Men: Days Of Future Past is coming thick and fast ahead of the start of shooting next month. Bryan Singer has now released a photo on Twitter of the casting wall (which you can see below), which reveals that original X-Men trilogy star Daniel Cudmore is returning as Colossus in X-Men: Days of Future Past, along with new actors Bingbing Fan and BooBoo Stewart.
Bingbing Fan is set to play Blink, a mutant with the power of teleportation, however it isn’t known who BooBoo Stewart is playing. The photo suggests there are six roles left to be cast, although it’s not clear what parts these are, or whether they’re new cast members or those returning from previous X-Men movies.
We do know that Azazel won’t be back, as Jason Flemyng has revealed he isn’t reprising his role from X-Men: First Class.
Bryan Singer is directing from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg, based on a 1980s comic book arc by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. In the comics, the mutants are being hunted and locked up in internment camps by Sentinels in an alternate future, after an important Senator is murdered by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. The film is due to hit cinemas July 18th, 2014.
