X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has previously tweeted behind the scenes images of Beast, Xavier, Storm, Iceman, and Wolverine, and now it’s time for our first look at Kitty Pryde aka Shadowcat.
The character appeared in the first two X-Men films by Bryan Singer, but she didn’t become a fully-fledged member of the X-Men until X3. Brett Ratner wanted Ellen Page for the role following her performance in Hard Candy, and Singer was more than happy to keep her on alongside the original cast for Days of Future Past. In the comics it was Shadowcat whose mind was transported back to the past in an effort to warn the X-Men about a bleak future where sentinels hunt down mutants. We don’t know if that will be the case in this film, but Singer has said all the characters in the script will have a purpose, so we can expect some fun stuff from Kitty Pryde.
X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Daniel Cudmore, and Omar Sy. Filming is currently under-way in Montrealand 20th Century Fox has set a July 2014 release.
