X-Men: Days Of Future Past
has added another name to its ranks, with the announcement that
star Omar Sy has agreed to join the production.
“Thrilled to welcome the brilliant #OmarSy from the amazing film #TheIntouchables to the cast of #Xmen #DaysofFuturePast!” tweeted Bryan Singer, announcing the news via the social networking site.
He didn’t go on to confirm just who Sy will be playing, but given the film’s time-travelling storyline, speculation is rife that he’s been brought in to play Bishop, the militant son of a pair of Aborigine mutant refugees.
The character made his debut in the same issue of Uncanny X-Men that Days Of Future Past is taken from, which leads us to believe that the guess might be a good one.
Directed by Singer and co-starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: Days Of Future Past will open in the UK on 18 July 2014.
