fan-bingbing-x-menWe know that Cudmore will return as Colossus and it’s being reported that Fan will play the mutant Blink, but it’s unclear at this point just who Stewart will play.  Blink, who appeared in the comics in the mid-90s, had the power of teleportation and the unfortunate destiny of being killed off soon after her introduction.  She was reimagined in a parallel comic storyline, however, and gained more of a following there.  Expect Blink to be a visually-stunning character similar to Mystique and Beast as the character features lilac skin, dark pink hair, pointed ears and pupil-less eyes.  There was some confusion as to whether or not Alan Cumming would be reprising his X2 role of Nightcrawler, but it seems as if Blink will be the only resident teleporter this time around.  There’s still no official word on who Stewart will play, but feel free to speculate in the comments!
