Last month, actor Hugh Jackman revealed that X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature every X-Men character that has appeared in the previous movies. While this statement hasn't exactly been confirmed, director Bryan Singer has brought on mutant alumni such as Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and Anna Paquin (Rogue). The director recently teased that Jean Gray (Famke Janssen) and Cyclops (James Marsden) may be back as well.
Jean Gray and Cyclops may return in X-Men: Days of Future Past
Here's what he had to say, when asked if he wants to see the characters come back.
"Who wouldn't? Who wouldn't? [Laughing] That's all I can say."
While this is not exactly a confirmation, there was a report from December that Fox wanted Halle Berry (Storm) and James Marsden (Cyclops) to return. This is the first we're hearing about Famke Janssen's return.
The filmmaker also spoke about "fixing" certain elements of director Brett Ratner's 2006 adventure X-Men: The Last Stand. Here's what he had to say, when asked if the time travel elements will allow him to repair certain things.
"You mean, what you're politely saying is, "fix s**t. Is that what you're saying? That's what I'm hearing. [Laughing] There's going to be a little of that, a few things I can repair."
It isn't known when production will begin on X-Men: Days of Future Past.
X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23rd, 2014 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
