Last night, Bryan Singer was featured at a special event during the Fantasia International Film Festival. Along with showing fans the footage that was screened at Comic-Con, he also talked about a couple details of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Three major details came out about the movie.
1. There will be no Scarlet Witch in the film, just Quicksilver, who will be played by Even Peters.
2. Josh Helman is playing a younger William Stryker.
3. On the return of Patrick Stewart as Professor X – He said that while he was disappointed that he couldn’t justify a ressurection of Cyclops for the film, he was able to bring back Xavier because: “he transferred his consciousness and could possibly construct a body around that consciousness.”
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for a May 23, 2014 release and stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.
