No Hellfire Club In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?

While they played a major role in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, sources close to the production of the Bryan Singer helmed X-Men: Days of Future Past have reportedly confirmed that the villainous organisation will NOT be back in the sequel. Read on for details!

We know that a lot of past X-Men cast members will be making an appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but there are still several notable mutants missing from both that timeline AND the one created in Matthew Vaughn's prequel. In a piece over at The Geek Files, the site reveals that they know of at least one element from X-Men: First Class which won't be playing a role in the sequel.

The Geek Files has heard from studio sources that 'the Hellfire Club [from X-Men: First Class] is not in this story', suggesting it might not be just Jason Flemyng's Azazel who isn't coming back. That would also seem to rule out Emma Frost (January Jones), Riptide (Alex Gonzalez) and Angel Salvadore (Zoe Kravitz).


The site brings up a very interesting point here. While I don't think that any of us were necessarily expecting to see the Hellfire Club play as big a role in this sequel - the fact that the remaining members joined Magneto's Brotherhood at the end of X-Men: First Class may have been proof enough of that - does this revelation mean that we won't see the former members return in any capacity? Flemyng and Jones have already said that they don't expect to be back, while we've heard nothing about the others so far (and they weren't included on the board that Singer Tweeted yesterday), although none of them would REALLY be missed.

SkullFace616 - 3/16/2013, 7:07 PM
Should recast Emma.
RPD - 3/16/2013, 7:13 PM
Good.
ahhmynuts - 3/16/2013, 7:13 PM
january jones can get it
Tainted87 - 3/16/2013, 7:14 PM
I don't know what to believe these days. Just gonna sit tight and wait for the movie.
Sanderman - 3/16/2013, 7:16 PM
I'm ok if they're not in it but at least explain why or what h happened to them
ATrueHero1987 - 3/16/2013, 7:18 PM
Like I've said,(and others before), this is a sequel to X3 & X-Men: FC in one.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 3/16/2013, 7:18 PM
riptide was soooooooo lame
marvel72 - 3/16/2013, 7:18 PM
yeah because adding the hellfire club would of just f*cked up the movie continuity.
jessepostal - 3/16/2013, 7:21 PM
they were all pretty terrible in first class
InfiniteMonkey - 3/16/2013, 7:22 PM
Good. They'll just [frick] it up again anyway.
No need to trample on a dead shit horse when the people at the helm don't even know how to handle it.
StormLoganSummers - 3/16/2013, 7:24 PM
The Hellfire Club dissolved at the end of FC, so of course it isn't coming back.
mctrinket - 3/16/2013, 7:25 PM
January Jones was pretty awful.
marvel72 - 3/16/2013, 7:26 PM
sebastian shaw was alright
emma frost was terrible/good scenes of undress
azazel was terrible/good action scenes
angel was shit
riptide was a steaming pile of shit

I think fox will ride this franchise into the ground like 007 movies. It'll just keep going forever and there will be a point where nobody cares and even if they make a super good one, all of the bad ones will drown it out.
GhostZero - 3/16/2013, 7:27 PM
To the hell with the Hellfire Club, just bring Emma Frost back.
Ramiel - 3/16/2013, 7:29 PM
Not even the X-Men come back since only Beast and Xavier return.
TheSuperguy - 3/16/2013, 7:32 PM
Well it would make sense since Shaw died and the others became part of the Brotherhood.
CoulsonLives - 3/16/2013, 7:34 PM
What happened to Banshee and Havok?
TerminalVoyd - 3/16/2013, 7:42 PM
Well, Singer had something like six spots open on the wall. I'm hoping two are for Marsden and Janssen. The others, well, new faces or old, I'm cool, though time is very quickly running short before they start rolling.
WYLEEJAY - 3/16/2013, 7:42 PM
I thought it was pretty apparent that they were done after first class, they joined the brotherhood. After that, they fell from relevance. Wish it wasn't true.
mattattack - 3/16/2013, 7:43 PM
I only care to hear if Havok is back, the rest I don't care about.
TheAbomination - 3/16/2013, 7:44 PM
Fine with me. There's too many characters in this movie already.
BANE5000 - 3/16/2013, 8:08 PM
Ummm isnt thata give in, I mean Magneto killed their leader, so that was the end of the Hellfire Club and the birth of The Brotherhood :]
typicalfanboy - 3/16/2013, 8:14 PM
Are havok, banshee, or moira coming back? Doesn't look like it
gambgel - 3/16/2013, 8:25 PM
Azazel and Emma Frost are great characters.
To me its a shame Fox and creative team dont want to develop them on the series.

They had great potential
JoeMomma29 - 3/16/2013, 8:27 PM
That is the worst Emma Frost Pic if you ask me! Emma is supposed to be freakin sexy!

TheRationalNerd - 3/16/2013, 8:40 PM
Since the film is taking place in the 70's do you all think we'll see more new mutants from his brotherhood of evil mutants??

-Blob
-Quake (In this case the guy from first class)
-Mystique

who else could possibly be on his team during this time period???
TheRationalNerd - 3/16/2013, 8:45 PM




m0th3r - 3/16/2013, 8:45 PM
doesn't matter..fox cares little for continuity, cannon or even common sense...

Singer will just use the same cast, put them in HORRIBLE costumes, tell some tale of that is a parable for his own life like every movie he does, then get pissed when we ask questions...only to see it be released to a giant "WTF"

continues to be funnier and funnier..
CodeNameCap - 3/16/2013, 8:52 PM
MUST. HAVE. HAVOK! He was incredible in FC and deserves to be back.
superbigguy32 - 3/16/2013, 8:56 PM
AVALANCHE!!!
polarkyle - 3/16/2013, 9:10 PM
well of course their not going to be in it because it's going to be called brotherhood this time
DurtyTalynt - 3/16/2013, 9:37 PM
Are u surprised? Whats good? No expectations that any of had has com to fruition for this franchise so why expect them now?
Brady1138 - 3/16/2013, 9:38 PM
I thought the Hellfire Club dissolved anyway after Shaw died?
NoJobBOB - 3/16/2013, 10:06 PM
Awww really? I was just hoping DOFP had MORE [frick]ing characters...

sad.

sarcasm :D
AmazingFantasy - 3/16/2013, 11:18 PM
Firstt Class was great. I liked shaw only, rest were prety bad...



Wallymelon - 3/16/2013, 11:28 PM
@banedescent 007 is and always will be a wonderful addition to hollywood dude. even with the not so great movies its still an incredible charactewr you want to see over and over again.
Durango95 - 3/17/2013, 12:06 AM
Good. The Hellfire Club sucked ass. Sebastian Shaw was weak and January Jones is about as sexy as toilet paper. No way should she have been cast as Emma Frost.
