@SarcasticCaveman - Singer thinks more mutants equals a better movie. LOL Train Wreck. I am calling it now. With this many characters they would need a three hour movie to have it all make sense. Which not going to happen.

 Look at X3.  I'm guessing most of these mutants are small bit parts which may branch out into bigger roles if the story permits later.

I'm with Axia.  Singer's movies always have mutant overkill.  I don't need to see every mutant known to Marvel in this movie to enjoy it.

And Bishop is not part of the Days of Future's Past storyline.  Bleh.  Unless a trailer wows me or there's nothing else to see that weekend and I haven't been to a movie in a while, I'm going to wait for this to hit Netflix.

 Yeah, but...but Bishop is from the future...future is part of the title, right? - how I assume Singer's mind works in regard to his X-Men movies.

This movie's getting awfully crowded. No one is going to get any screen time. In fact, I bet Bishop and Warpath will only be seen briefly since you want to give all the original X-Men/First Class groups more screen time. The general audience knows them better. Next thing you know Cable and Rachel Summers will show up as well.

Perhaps he intends to split this into a Part 1 and 2. He might be trying to work up enthusiasm for this so the studio will agree to that.

 

And I refuse to take anybody seriously who calls themselves Booboo on purpose unless they are a bear.

Wouldn't Warpath be younger in the First Class "timeline"?  It could be that he is just being recuited "now" and becomes butch as he grows up... or in the next movie.

But I do agree... just taking a roll call would just about use up the time alotted for an average movie.

And if there are this many heroes... won't there need to be an equal number of villains for arse kick'n?

Yike!

All minor roles which will destroy their presence and character because they were popular in the comics but now Fox is once again just thinking to add any names they can without truly sticking to who the characters are...not looking goog at all.

Absolutely agree this is overkill.

When Singer first announced Days of Future Past and reuniting both FC and his X-men cast I was reluctant and said what the heck, it can be cool seeing Fassbender, Jackman, etc... all together.

But it seems like he is adding a mutant a day. Mania didn't get this scoop but up in Canada, Singer, Stewart, Mckellen, Ashmore and Adam Canto (who?) were at a Canadiens game last Saturday. Singer tweeted Canto is part of the cast and Canto tweet if he gets mad, he gets hot (Sunspot?). So add that one too.

This is an absolute joke and Singer and Fox continue to take a massive dump on some of my favorite characters and their history. Ratner went crazy filling in mutants with some from the X-universe. Gavin Hood did the same for Wolverine.

He's just filling holes with great characters that are probably listed as mutant no.2, mutant no.4, mutant no.7 in the script.

I would forgive if he shot this as a trilogy a la Peter Jackson but it he's not PJ. It will be another 100 minute cluster f.uck of jammed mutants with Jackman and Berry hogging the camera.

Come on guys, why is everyone so serious about X-Men? Noone complained about Boba Fett getting absolutely zero character development in the Star Wars trilogy. I personally love the X-Men franchise and strongly believe that the large gallery of mutants, both main characters and "guest appearances", is the very essence of these movies.

To this day there's only ONE single-super-hero franchise which has managed to hold my interest throughout its second installment and that's Sam Raimi's "Spiderman" (Even IM2 sucked balls and I certainly don't have any hopes up for part 3). X-Men on the other hand has already produced 4 highly entertaining movies, which is by far the best record of any modern super hero franchise to date (Some would say Batman was great but I'd disagree).

Also, X-Men hasn't yet taken its storyline off-Earth (or into the "magic realms"), which in my opinion makes it even more important to spice things up a little, by throwing some extra colorful characters into the mix. And last but not least, let's face it, most super hero personas are actually pretty badly developed and/or one dimensional once you really get to know them. I say keep milking the mutant hating community story arc & the epic mutant vs mutant battles and I'll be watching 'til we run out of camera angles.

Fox Exec #3: "ooooo and let's make this asian bad guy who's mutant power is having porcupine like spikes come out of his body! And the only way he can kill an innocent helpless woman is by pretending to be nice to her and hugging her, then he'll unleash his lethal porcupine spikes!!.... Oh man this movie is gonna be so awesome!!!"
