X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Plot Details, SDCC Plans & Secret Characters Revealed?

A new report seemingly reveals some intriguing plot details for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, as well as how the film will be represented at SDCC. Additionally, Peter Dinklage and Josh Helman's roles have apparently been confirmed.



We previously heard that Fox will be bringing X-Men: Days Of Future Past to San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday (along with The Wolverine and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes), but other than announcing other X-titles, we weren't sure what else to expect. According to Vulture, over a dozen cast members from the superhero ensemble are heading to SDCCC, and will reveal new details at the panel. However, Vulture has found out many of these details, including which characters Peter Dinklage and Josh Helman are playing. As previously rumored, the former is Bolivar Trask, who in the comics created the Sentinel robots (that will most likely be featured in the film as well). And despite speculation that Helman is playing a young Cyclops, he is in fact portraying a young William Stryker; this character was previously in X2: X-Men United (played by Brian Cox) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Danny Huston).

Additionally, Vulture has uncovered new plot details for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. In the Bryan Singer-directed movie, Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) "uses her powers to send Hugh Jackman's Wolverine back into the past, where he encounters the younger mutants played by James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender. However, something bad happens to Kitty during the time-travel trance, and while Wolverine is still under her spell, the other X-Men must race to find a mutant who can siphon Kitty's powers and bring their friend back to the future." What do you think of this news? Stay tuned to CBM for much more news as we get closer to Comic-Con.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore. The film is set to hit theaters May 23rd, 2014.
