Fans of the "X-Men" franchise have had a big week. First director Bryan Singer announced on Twitter that most of the original cast would be reprising their roles in the sequel. Then he proclaimed that Sir Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would be returning as the older Professor X and Magneto. With the news of these classic appearances, we wondered what other actors may pop up in the film from past "X-Men" movies.
With a small but great cameo in "X-Men: First Class", Hugh Jackman is currently in negotiations to return in "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Since the script has been finished and all the main players are returning, one might speculate that Wolverine's role in "Future Past" will be a small one. This will be the 7th time Jackman plays Wolverine, with his upcoming "The Wolverine" hitting AMC Theatres on July 26th 2013.
The comic book storyline of "Days of Future Past" tells the tale of a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An older Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into the younger, present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.
The returning cast of key players include James McAvoy (Younger Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven), Michael Fassbender (Younger Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast).
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" opens in AMC Theatres on July 18th 2014.
