If all goes to plan, there are going to be a hell of a lot of superheroes in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. We already knew the First Class mutants would be meeting up with Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart & possibly Hugh Jackman from the earlier X-Men movies, but now THR reports that Halle Berry, James Marsden and others are being sought too.
It isn’t clear if Fox has issued proper offers to the actors, although the THR story suggest others earlier X-Men are being contacted too to see if they can becomes part of the movie, although we don’t know which ones. There is said to be a lot of ‘willingness to participate’ now that director Bryan Singer has returned to the director’s chair.
So don’t be surprised if we hear the likes of Anna Paquin, Rebecca Romijn and Ben Foster are returning in the the next few weeks. Bryan Singer is directing from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg, with Matthew Vaughn still attached as a producer, despite dropping out as the director.
