I Think The Only Mutant Not In X-Men Days of Future Past Is Dazzler: Casting News

Bryan Singer is still adding to the cast of X-Men Days of Future Past. According to SlashFilm and the tweet below, Fan Bingbing, Booboo Stewart (Twilight Eclipse), and Dandan Daniel Cudmore are the newest additions.


You may recall Cudmore from his appearances in X:2 and X:3 as Peter Rasputin/Colossus. Who will Bingbing and Stewart be playing? If you look closely at the photo on Twitter, you can see that the character names of Bingbing, Stewart, Peter Dinklage, and Omar Sy have been obscured. However, it is believed that Bingbing will be playing teleporting mutant Blink.


While you ponder the possibilities for the remaining actors, have a look at Hugh Jackman's newest stills from The Wolverine.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • John W

    I always pictured Dichen Lachman as Blink.

  • yocean

    I want want Bang Bang with Bing Bing...okay I am sorry....but that woman is impossibly hot for a 40 years old.

  • logan

    I had to google Fan Bingbing. I thought that it was a website, then i thought it was some Pajiba nickname. Turns out its a 31 year old Chinese actress.

    Well she's very pretty and apparently Chinese women do not age because i would never have thought she was 31. But then I thought she was a website 5 minutes ago so... there you have it.

  • oilybohunk7

    Beige don't age.

  • I love Blink! And now I want to see an Age of Apocalypse movie. Sigh.

  • Eblis

    Blink was my favorite part of Age of Apocalypse, which mostly didn't hold my interest.

  • Jezzer

    I like the X-Men movies, but I find it hard to overlook some of the more unsavory Bryan Singer rumors that have come out over the years. Let's just say that if Singer were an X-Man, his codename would be "Chickenhawk."

  • duckandcover

    You may recall Cudmore from his appearances in X:2 and X:3 as Peter Rasputin/Colossus.


  • Jezzer

    I'm not moving past the fact any time soon that someone's parents named her "Booboo," and she didn't change it as soon as humanly possible. Did they home school her and make her miss out on important bullying sessions?

  • duckandcover

    Booboo Stewart's a guy. He played Seth Clearwater in Twilight.

  • Jezzer

    Oh, well that makes it all better then. I should have guessed. "Booboo" is totally a boy's name.

  • Drake

    Yogi's little pal would like a word with you.

  • Jezzer

    The name makes a tad bit more sense for a 1-foot tall cartoon bear than it does for a grown-ass man.

  • Tracer Bullet

    I guess Omar Sy means we're going to see Bishop or, I guess, Synch. There aren't a lot of options for a black male X-Man.

  • theotheone

    Fan Bingbing - She will obviously be a villain because apparently there are no Asian Superheros... (Yes, yes Silver Samurai will be in the new Wolverine movie but he is far from Big Hero 6).

    I guess Silver Samurai could appear in Singers but preferable with a Japanense actor playing the role and not Will Yun Lee.

  • Tracer Bullet

    Psylocke and Sunfire laugh at you.

  • theotherone

    "Betsy" Braddock is Asian? I guess you missed the "hero" part of "super hero" and not "super villain".

    Shiro Yoshida / Sunfire would be kinda cool though (but because of his Capitan American level of hate for the Americas I don't think it would ever happen).

  • Carlito

    And starring Fan Bingbing as Jubilee!

  • Jezzer

    "Betsy" Braddock got her telepathic mind swapped into the body of Kwannon, an Asian assassin, and her original body died.

  • theotherone

    So she's the ultimate "banana"? That would totally work for Hollywood.

  • Jeff in Middletucky

    This won't be worth a shit without Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    There is only one option for Stewart: Rogue. She can't be worse than Paquin.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Booboo Stewart played one of the werewolves in the Twilight movies. My nickname for Kristen Stewart is actually Woowoo.

  • marigi

    I think this Stewart is a boy, non the K girl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B...

  • Fabius_Maximus

    The hell? Who the fuck names a child 'Booboo'?

    Thanks anyway.

  • JJ

    Well, not his parents, as he was born Nils Allen Stewart according to that Wiki entry. Must be a nickname that stuck.

  • Kballs

    Wolverine is getting old . . .

  • Jezzer

    I'm surprised Singer hasn't replaced him with his houseboy by now.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I thought the same thing. Aging slower my ass!

  • Kballs

    Side effects of Admantium are highly overrated.

  • BlackRabbit

    Gotta be a bitch casting for immortals. So few of us want to be on the big or small screen these days. Dick Clark was a rare example.
