Jennifer Lawrence is hot stuff. She's just come off of winning Best Actress for 'Silver Linings Playbook' and flipping off an unruly reporter at the 2013 Oscars, and she's a key player in two huge movie franchises -- 'The Hunger Games' and 'X-Men.' She's constantly on the go and therefore doesn't have time sit in a makeup chair for hours on end just so she can reprise her role of Mystique in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'
X-Men: Days of Future Past
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is to commence shooting in April, and it will include a lot of familiar faces. One current holdout is Halle Berry, who originated the role of Storm. Last we heard she wasn't in the picture, but now it looks like there's a strong chance of Storm appearing in 'Future Past.'
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is sounding more and more like the most "epic" movie for lovers of this superhero team, and that's using Bryan Singer's own words. It's gonna have sentinels, Peter Dinklage as the main villain, 'X-Men' veterans mingled with the cast of 'First Class,' and the list of amenities just keeps on growing. And just when we couldn't be even more pumped than we already are, we might (repeat might) have just learned when the first preview of this ultimate 'X-Men' movie will be hitting.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is going to be one hell of an 'X-Men' movie, melding together the original mutants, like Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman, with the updated 'First Class' cast. Now 'Game of Thrones' star Peter Dinklage is the first newbie added to the franchise in a previously unknown role, but the first details of his character have leaked out!
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has been casting many of the old 'X-Men' trilogy stars to join with the new 'X-Men: First Class' stars for one mega X-Men crossover. Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellan and Hugh Jackman have all agreed to return but Halle Berry - one of the big stars of the original films - might be the one left out in the dark. So why would Berry not return as Storm?
It's long been rumored that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' would not only be utilizing an absurdly large cast but also featuring something fans have been waiting to see brought to life on the big screen: Sentinels. Those nasty robots have given the X-Men so much grief throughout the entire comic book series, and now you'll be happy to know that they will indeed be heavily featured in Bryan Singer's latest movie installment.
Bryan Singer has a new movie on the horizon, 'Jack the Giant Slayer,' but let's be realistic: any lucky sonofagun who speaks to the man while he's out promoting his latest is going to be far more interested in the impending 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Thankfully, Singer appears to be pretty jazzed about it, as is evident in a new interview with Empire Magazine, where he touts a truly epic sequel and reveals how James Cameron -- yes, the King of the World -- figures into the project.
We knew that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was going to be a time travel story that would somehow merge the universes of the original 'X-Men' films and 'X-Men: First Class,' but the most recent casting news suggests something more epic than we could have possibly imagined. A cavalcade of past mutant superheroes have officially joined the cast, deepening an already absurdly great ensemble.
