Singer Confirms Bishop & Warpath in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
Director Bryan Singer is hard at work on X-Men: Days of Future Past, and here and there some little tidbits keep coming to the surface about the sequel. While it seems like the cast is completely filled out, some of the newer members haven't been definitively linked to a specific character. But now with a new post on Twitter from the director, it sounds like we have some more information on new X-Men showing up in the film. Singer posted a Vine video of the cast members chairs on set with character names on them and the names Bishop and Warpath were in the mix, which should be all too familiar to comic fans. More below!
Here's the video Bryan Singer posted to Vine from X-Men: Days of Future Past:
Bishop a member of "Xavier's Security Enforcers", but he was first introduced in Uncanny X-Men after the Days of Future Past comic book arc, so there's obviously something interesting going on here. However, considering Bishop is from a post-apocalyptic future and travels back through time to meet the current mutants, it makes sense for him to get involved with the film. Meanwhile, Warpath is is an Apache Native American with super strength and speed. He initially took on a villainous role after his brother died as one of the X-Men, but he joined the heroesand became a member of Wolverine’s X-Force team.
Considering the recently cast Omar Sy of The Intouchables was rumored for that role, that pretty much confirms his part in the sequel. In addition, since Booboo Stewart is the only Native American member of the cast, we're pretty sure that he's playing Warpath. And just for further confirmation Fan Bingbing is definitely playing Blink, a mutant with the power to teleport herself and large groups of people or objects. This film is just chock full of mutants, and I'm kind of worried it's a little too much. But we'll put our trust in Bryan Singer and can't wait for more from the July 18th, 2014 release.
