Pictorial: The Complete Mutant Cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past

By Jodi Clager and Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | April 25, 2013 | Comments ()


I know what you've been thinking. I mean other than that perverted thing you're trying to hide behind your temporal lobe. (Seriously what the hell, Koala bears can't legally consent to that). You've been thinking that the one problem with previous X-Men films is that there just haven't been enough mutants. I mean, at least two percent of the population has the mental capacity to remember all of the characters in some of those installments. It's like the filmmakers haven't even been trying.

Bryan Singer has that covered though. Returning to the franchise he abandoned to Brett Ratner's shrimp sauce soaked fingers, Singer has decided to hire all the actors. This process has been made downright giddy by the fact that X-Men: Future Subjunctive Tense is set both in past and future, which means that Singer gets to hire two actors for the same role in many cases.

So far we've got ... well seriously, any mutant who didn't die in the first four movies is on the list. Plus younger and older versions.

So naturally this morning Singer announced that he was adding two new mutants: Warpath and Bishop. They're both the sort of boring mutants that blend together for anyone who isn't an avid comic reader, with vague powers of superhuman strength and resistance and energy whatsits. So yeah, color me excited.

This coincides with the hiring of Omar Sy and Booboo Stewart, so the presumption is that those actors will plays those roles. I'm most excited about a guy named Booboo playing a character named Warpath, because it's the little absurdities that get you through the day,

No word yet on whether each mutant will get their own forty-five seconds of screen time, or whether they'll have to share it since two-thirds of the movie will be focused on Wolverine by apparent legal mandate. Also no word on whether the film will be a thinly veiled Christ metaphor that flops at the box office on account of viewer stupidity, but I'm sure Singer will update us as he knows more on that front.

Alas, Peter Dinklage's character is still under lock and key, but we can now give a likely accurate rundown of who will be playing which mutant. Of course, what fun would that be without showing all of the mutants?

Magneto: Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender

Professor Xavier: Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy

Wolverine: Hugh Jackman

Storm: Halle Berry

Mystique: Rebecca Romijn (Maybe?) and Jennifer Lawrence

Beast: Nicholas Hoult

Rogue: Anna Paquin

Iceman: Shawn Ashmore

Kitty Pryde: Ellen Page

Colossus: Daniel Cudmore

Blink: Fan Bingbing

Bishop: Omar Sy (I hope they go the mullet route!)

Sunspot (possibly?): Adan Canto

Warpath: Booboo Stewart

Peter Dinklage: STILL A SECRET!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Strand

    I'd love/hate it if they go full Liefield with Warpath.

  • basse buus

    I need this movie to be awesome... Yes need

  • Who the hell doesn't remember Bishop's powers?

  • sean

    Dinklidge is Bolivar Trask I thought? Although, obviously, he would make a fabulous Puck. Get to kick some ass, which he can't do on GoT

  • toblerone

    Stewart and McKellen are both Montreal Canadiens fans?

  • Frank Booth

    They were all at last saturday's Habs game

  • hater from siloam springs

    Why would Dinklage NOT be playing Puck?

  • csb

    Are they shitting all over Cyclops again, because I was under the impression that James Marsden was also returning?

  • Some Guy

    Anna Paquin again? She was the worst part of the original 3 movies, and made a cool character like Rogue into a sniveling waste of time and film.

    Also, am I to understand that because What's-his-name decided to make Cyclops, one of the most popular and revered X-men, into a whiney pre-teen girl, and then kill him off at the beginning of X3, we should not expect to see him again in this movie? Are they really that stupid?

    And Dinklage has to be playing Puck from Alpha Flight. Canada represent.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Yeah, but her current show has given her lots of practice with the accent...nope, can't even say it with a straight face.

  • Stephen Nein

    Peter Dinklage = Puck?

    Beauty, eh?!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Booboo Kiddyface is to play that hulked out monster? That won't work.

    Also, due to the make-up, Jennifer Lawrence can play Mystique in the whole movie. I'd be okay with that.

  • BWeaves

    Is Halle Berry a flying squirrel?

  • Yes and they are pairing her with a new character who has the mutant powers of a dim-witted moose

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Moose and squirrel? IS ALWAYS MOOSE AND SQUIRREL!

  • Wicked

    LOOK at ALL that hot MAN MEAT.

  • sean

    It seems fair. An openly gay director filling his movie with attractive men. Straight directors have been doing the same for a century.

  • Wicked

    I don't know what that has anything to do with all the hotness that's going to be in this movie. It didn't have anything to do with him being gay... I'm just appreciating the masculinity here.

  • BobbFrapples

    Is it wrong that I really want Rogue and young Magneto to make out?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Yes, it's wrong. Why would you want that? Now young Magneto and young Xavier...that's more like it.

  • BobbFrapples

    Ooooh! Much better!

  • Considering what would happen? Probably.

  • cinemaniac

    The more info Singer releases about this movie the more excited I get.
    On one hand, I'm worried it won't live up to my expectations.
    On the other, I don't give a fuck, because it's going to be awesome!

  • Forbiddendonut

    That's a lot of mutants. These movies tend to work better when the group is small and the story is able to focus on a small, core group (like X-Men First Class, which really excelled when the movie focused just on Magneto and Professor X). I would imagine that most of these characters will just be expendables brought in to die to show how dire those "Days of Future Past" really are.

    That wanted list of Mutants is not nearly as scary looking without all of those red X's over certian ones.

  • I expect a lot of these cast members are going to have glorified cameos as the core cast gets whatever horrific visions of the future that come their way.

  • Even Stevens

    Wait so we've got an actor named Booboo and actress named Fan Bingbing? Day officially made.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I'm changing my name to PinkPink McLadybitbits

  • logan

    You stole my comment! : )

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    I had to google Booboo to make sure his parents didn't actually name him that. They didn't. He's just...well 19, so obviously he thinks this is a good idea.

  • BWeaves

    What 19 year old boy thinks Honey Booboo is a good boy's name? It's not even a good 5 year old girl's name.

  • Optimus

    If only they married and he changed his name to Booboo Bingbing.

  • I feel bad to be a partypooper but Fan is actually Fan Bing Bing's last name so technically you could choose either Boo Boo Fan or Bing Bing Stewart :(

  • BWeaves

    I'd be a fan of that.

  • We get Leeloo ordained to do the ceremony and it will go beyond epic.

  • BWeaves

    With Honey BooBoo as flower girl.

  • Michelle

    SIgh. I know the storyline REQUIRES Kitty Pryde, but for some reason she's one of those X-Men that I really dislike. I think part of that is Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men, actually.

  • sean

    Ha, I have always loved Kitty. Once upon a time, we were the same age. She seemed like the ideal GF for people like me. Which is why her character was so popular in the early 80s. Btw, I had a comic book loving GF, who was more than a little Kitty Pryde-ish way back then. Turned out she had two kids. Named them (Katherine) Kitty and Logan.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Good thing they're shooting in Montreal - if those were Leafs sweaters I'd probably have to refuse to watch this out of spite.

  • Jon

    i still think Dinklage is going to be Apocalypse :) ...also, holy crapdamn does that kid look like Sunspot.

  • Right but the powers Canto mentioned in his tweet don't fit Sunspot.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I'm now retroactively re-imagining every X-Men comic I've ever read and putting Dinklage in as Apocalypse, and I am at peace. Cheers

  • sean

    Could be worse. He could be Onslaught

  • zeke_the_pig

    So... if to 'Rattnerfuck' is to take somebody else's franchise and fuck it right up, does that mean that now we'll have to coin 'Singerfucked' to mean 'returning to that very same franchise that was once yours, and then fuck it up EXACTLY the same way that it was Rattnerfucked?'
