Late last month we learned that both Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen will be playing parts in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and most recently it was reported that Hugh Jackman is in talks to return as Wolverine, but it appears that director Bryan Singer isn't just stopping there. In a feature about the developing superhero film, THR has revealed that the production is also looking to get Halle Berry, James Marsden and many of the other actors who played heroic mutants in the original trilogy to reprise their roles in the new film.
According to sources close to the production it shouldn't be too hard a sell to get the actors back either. Apparently their characters would only be shown in the "alternate dystopic future" where giant robots called Sentinels are created to destroy all mutants, and that wouldn't require a big time commitment. Plus there's the fact that Singer is back in the director's chair. Said the trade's source on the cast development, "'There is a lot of willingness to participate because of Bryan.'"
X-Men: Days of Future Past will go into production early next year and is currently scheduled to be released July 18, 2014.
Yes to more Storm, but no thank you to more Halle Berry as Storm.
