It has been confirmed that Halle Berry (‘The Call’) and Daniel Cudmore (‘The Baytown Outlaws’) are set to reprise their roles as Storm and Colossus, respectively, for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’
In addition to the returning stars, director Bryan Singer has revealed that Chinese actress Fan Bingbing (‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Double Xposure’) and Booboo Stewart (‘The Twilight Saga’) have also been cast for the forthcoming sequel.
What character Stewart will be playing as yet to be revealed, but Singer has confirmed that Bingbing is on board to play teleporting fan-favourite Blink. Hopefully the addition of Colossus means we’ll be seeing more Fastball Special action from him and Wolverine.
Berry, Cudmore, Bingbing and Stewart join previously cast Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin, Omar Sy, and Shawn Ashmore.
Referring to the calibre of his cast, Singer tweeted, “3 #Oscars, 6 #GoldenGlobes, 1 #BAFTA, 2 #Emmys, 2 #Tonys, 5 #Oliviers, 1 #Ceaser – Now let’s blow s**t up! #XMEN”
