17 brand new character photos and bios have been unveiled on the X-Men: Days of Future Past website.
Days of Future Past isn't scheduled to hit theaters until May, which means that X-Men fans will have to subsist on a diet of pathetic news stories and trailers for the next few months. Like any good drug dealer, Twentieth Century Fox doles out the goods in tiny, excruciating tastes, creating an addiction that can only be cured with a full-length feature film. To that effect, the flick's official website has been updated with a slew of brand new character photos and bios.
This movie is a blend of Bryan Singer's original X-Men characters and their younger counterparts from the Matthew Vaughn-directed prequel, X-Men: First Class. Most of the cast members from previous X-Men movies are returning to reprise their roles. However, Cyclops and Jean Grey are noticeably absent, which is understandable considering how things ended in X-Men: The Last Stand.
I, for one, am happy to see Bishop, Blink, and Sunspot join the cast, but would have liked Gambit to make his big-screen debut. Though, the rumor mill has been churning out reports of a standalone Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum. So, it may only be a matter of time.
