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!

    Awesome to here about Blink and Colossus. I really hope they use Tin Man to his full advantage here. As far as Stewart…given what he played it seemed before and give the way he looks and heritage background and the fact that they made this character YOUNGER in the Wolverine and The Xmen Toons and this characters involvement in the story… ill put my money on that we are getting Forge on the big screen.

  • Agent777

    If Booboo isn’t will there be a part where they look for bigfoot?

  • Germ-X

    This movie better be 5 hours long. I don’t even know if I’m joking when I say that.

    • GunsOfNavarone

      Something tells me this story arc will lapse over into a sequel, which I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Singer doesn’t return to helm. This is his niche.

  • Clark Griswold

    Please let Booboo Stewart and Fan Bingbing hook up on set and get married, so we can have an actress named Booboo Bingbing.

    • Drake

      I lol’d

    • The Destroyer


  • uh oh..

    I don’t like that hugh is the first picture out of the rest. Lets face it.. the movie should really be called Wolverine: Days of future past… sigh.

    • Susan

      Oh, please no; not another Wolverine-centered film. I hope the line-up is random.

  • jk

    James Marsden and Famke Janssen must be pissed they haven’t gotten a call from Singer if Colossus is getting a spot of this film.

    • Deadpool

      I feel like they will be in it, but they are keeping it a secret. Singer knows how much everyone wants them back. Just have to wait and see.

      • sajsdfhbf

        Agreed, plus if you announce 1 everyone will know the other is in the movie.

      • Andrew

        Gawd i pray you’re right about Famke Janssen coming back to play Marvel Girl/Phoenix.

  • farttle

    where is that german actor.. Ivel Cuminzeface

    • Mike337

      He’s at your mom’s house.

  • 420band

    Hope we get our money’s worth with colossus this time around he wasn’t used enough in singers last one IMO

  • Doug

    I’m a bit worried about Too Many Characters Syndrome. But I can’t help but be excited by all this casting news. The problem is that with every new cast member/character announcement, I’m sad for the actors who aren’t returning (yet). Alan Cumming, Famke and James. And I really wouldn’t mind seeing some characters from X3 getting the Singer treatment.

  • mad man

    This movie will bomb big time ……..I mean ….are we making a movie or a tv series with all these characters.

    Rachel Summers should also be introduced in this movie. She was the one character that was from the Days of Future Past time stream, and was also the daughter of primary characters from the first 3 films. And a fresh start on the Phoenix character would be welcome, too.
    But I’m afraid that the more characters added will lessen the impact of each one. Quality would be preferrable over quantity, so stretching it into 2 films would be welcome news.
