Bryan Singer continues to tease X-Men fans on Twitter, and today the director posted an image featuring head-shots of all the cast (at least those he’s willing to share, notice the gaps). The wall contains all the actors confirmed so far, and there are three new additions who have yet to be announced by Singer officially.
One face X-Men fans will notice is that of Daniel Cudmore (below Patrick Stewart), who played Colossus in X2 and X3. If the X-Men will be facing off against sentinels in the future they’ll need some brute force, which is where Colossus comes in handy.

The two actors on the second row to the right are Chinese actress Fan Bingbing and Twilight actor Boo Boo Stewart. According to Variety Bingbing is playing a character called Blink who can “teleport herself and others at will” including “large masses and sizable groups of people.” This could explain the time-displacement aspect of the film, if they decide to utilize the character in that way.
Stewart could be playing Thunderbird, who in the comics is a Native American character with superhuman athletic ability. There’s also a chance he could be Sunfire who generates superheated plasma and can fly.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will begin filming next month for a July 2014 release. Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Omar Sy, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult all star.
