Bryan Singer Confirms Several New Mutants in X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Chair

If you’re excited about 2014’s X-Men film X-Men: Days of Future Past then you should follow Bryan Singer on Twitter.  With his Twitter feed @BryanSinger the returning X-Men director has tricked out early casting announcements and photos from the set.  But this morning Singer may have given our biggest piece of information yet–a list of several new mutant heroes appearing in the upcoming film.

With a tweet titled “Every mutant needs a place to sit” Singer posted a rapid-fire video of chairs on the set, the backs silk-screened with the name of a film character.

Do not read any further if you wish to avoid spoilers

The Marvel Comics characters shown on the chair backs are:

  • Logan (aka Wolverine)
  • Xavier (Professor X)
  • Magneto
  • Storm
  • Bishop
  • Kitty Pryde
  • Bobby “Iceman” Drake
  • Peter “Colossus” Rasputin
  • Blink
  • James “Warpath” Proudstar

While Colossus had brief scenes in the second and third X-Men films, this is the first cinematic appearance of Blink, Warpath, and Bishop.

The full video can be seen on vine.co
