Adan Canto Joins X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST; Will He Play Sunfire Or Sunspot?
A new addition to the cast of Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past film has seemingly been outed as The Following alum Adan Canto, who took to Twitter to announce the news and hint at his character.
With filming in full swing in Montreal, Canada, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer and stars Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Shawn Ashmore recently attended a hockey game in town. During the NHL event, Mexican actor Adan Canto, who’s best known for his role on Fox’s The Following drama series, took to Twitter to announce that he’s joining the mutant ensemble cast.
“Thrilled to be X-Men,” Adan Canto tweeted, including Twitter handles of Singer, Stewart, McKellen and Ashmore, as well as the hashtag #daysoffuturepast. Two weeks prior to that tweet, Canto teased, “I might turn into a ball of fire if someone pisses me off,” in response to another user of the social network requesting hints for his
(then) mystery project. If Days of Future Past is the project in question, Adan Canto could be playing the Brazilian mutant Roberto da Costa, aka Sunspot, or perhaps an alteration of Japanese mutant Shiro Yoshida, Sunfire. What do you think?
X-Men: Days of Future Past reunites Adan Canto with his The Following castmate, Shawn Ashmore. Also starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Fan Bingbing, Anna Paquin, Daniel Cudmore, Ellen Page & Booboo Stewart, the “inbetweenquel” releases July 18, 2014!
