Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST adds Anna Paquin, Ellen Page & Shawn Ashmore


If you haven’t been keeping up with news on X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, it’s shaping up to be the most ambitious superhero movie since THE AVENGERS, bringing back most of the cast from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and including many of the original X-MEN trilogy cast members to boot. Director Bryan Singer has been revealing several of the cast updates through his Twitter, and now has revealed that Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore will appear in the 2014 sequel.

The last time we saw Paquin, Page and Ashmore as team members with in X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, directed by Brett Ratner – Paquin played Rogue, Page was Kitty Pride and Ashmore was Iceman. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is also bringing back Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to join FIRST CLASS stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence. Being a fan of the films, even somewhat forgiving of THE LAST STAND, I’m pretty excited to see what Singer can do with this sequel. Blending the classic team members (classic in the sense of the original films) with the newer cast is pretty exciting, and Singer would be the guy to do it. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
