Default Billing order.

This thread is dedicated to people's ideas on the cast order for xmen days of future past.

With so many great actors its going be a tough call!!

One option could be alphabetical or in appearance.

But what do people think!?

And why would James McAvoy be placed after Fassbender, Lawrence, Hoult and Page?
The first four names will be Jackman, McAvoy, Fassbender and Lawrence, just maybe not in this order.

Yeah. And probably exactly like it is in the photo.

Jackman, Lawrence, McAvoy, Fassbender.

With McAvoy and Fassy, so long as they're in the same (x-men) film together they will ALWAYS be billed with McAvoy before Fassbender. It's not a popularity thing. The hero will always be billed before the villain.

I think this will be the billing order.

now as for empty slots If Fmake Janssen Is in film for role that reguires a stunt
double I think she gets sloted between Peter DInklage and Halle Berry If not
then Evan Peters gets that slot.

for slot between Anna Paquin and Daniel Cudmore It think that slot goes to eather evan or Josh Helman(depending on Famke)

Adan Canto will probally get placed In between Bingbing fan and Booboo Stewart.

I don't think this is the final billing order, myself. I think that there will be a few changes in that order by the time the film comes out.

Agreed. I'd say it's pretty likely that the way you see it here (1st row, left to right, then second) will be the way it all measures up.

Top line is the...top line cast (i.e., billed in all the credits for posters, ads, etc.). The first six will obviously be most utilized in marketing. Berry and Page could be the "with" credit as the final two. The rest will get billed in the film credits themselves, but not as "headliners."

These casting walls are usually organized and strategized by
A) story/screen time, and
B) contract stipulations of the actor

(The former could often come before the latter...and indeed perhaps has in the past, for more than one cast member in this franchise...)

There's no way Anna won't be "billed" even if her name doesn't make it as far as the posters.

As others have said, if that is the billing, I would bet on "and Anna Paquin" as the final billing, as she had in X1 and X2.

Yup...I'm pretty sure this will be close to the final billing. With Anna receiving "....and Anna Paquin".

No way is Evan Peters getting billed before Halle Berry lol. He's essentially a nobody in comparison to the rest of the cast and will probably end up somewhere after the main cast (i.e. after Anna Paquin).

I have no idea who could be billed before Halle. Maybe the blank doesn't represent the actual billing order for that person and was just put there to emphasize that the unrevealed person had a major role or was a major character. Maybe Bryan got his good friend Famke or James (if either of them is even in the movie) a nice billing, who knows.

I think If James Marsden Is In film he would probally be an uncredited appearance they want to keep secret.

The Idea that Famke Janssen Is both In film and credited would be billed before
Halle Berry Isn't a crazy one especilly If say
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Her powers are how Kitty Is able to transport WOlverine to past


If Famke Isn't credited or possibly not in film,although I doudt that's happening,
I could see Lucas Till between Dinklage and Halle due to him being a returnee from first Class but Even Peters Is going to be one credited after Anna.

Lucas Till, seriously???

Do you not like Halle Berry or something? Please explain the logic behind Lucas Till, an actor I hadn't even heard of before First Class, will be billed before Halle. Is he a mega sucessful box office draw? Is he a big name actor, is he even an international icon. Has he ever headlined a movie or tv series. Is there any possibility that he has a bigger fan base than Halle Berry? No, then I'm not sure I could see him being billed before her.

I don't personally think that that is the final billing order but if it was and there had to be someone billed before Halle it would be an unrevealed big name actor/actress.

It may be an interesting conversation topic for some. For example on the DVD the billing order was reasonably the same but x3 changed it.

Imdb changes there line up every now and then.

Just for people to discuss any related topics in one place.

Maybe marsden is in it?! Plus I'm sure the actor who plays Nixon will get a place on the billing.

On the posters, I'd just wanna see Jackman, McAvoy, Fassbender, Stewart & McKellan, and maybe Dinklage, as the top billed names
everybody else can show up in the tiny type at the bottom

but I'm sure they'll have to throw friggin' Berry and Lawrence in there too

Yep, got to let everyone know it's not just white men involved.

Why would Dinklage get billing before Lawrence? When did he last lead a film?

I would expect so. The two most famous female actors in the franchise would definitely and deservedly be top billed in the franchise. The two actresses would show to those unfamiliar with X-Men that the film does feature strong female characters.

Plus those two are much bigger draws then Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen.

In fact I almost guarantee that the three biggest draws for this movie, Jackman, Berry and Lawrence will be top billed. Those three will be up there before it's even considered whether Stewart, Mckellen, and Dinklage should be included as well.

Hey now,
I wasn't suggesting, at all, that women shouldn't get top billing.

Just not those two women.
Cuz they suck horribly.

in X-Men films, at least.

I think It will be like the cast pic SInger tweeted.

Hugh jackman will be top billed.Jennifer Lawrence will probally get second billed.That's because of her being an ooscar winner and starring In hungar games.Then It will be James
Mcavoy and Michael Fassbender.Hugh's the only OT actor who should get billed over james and Michael.Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen may get billed over Nicholas Hoult and Peter Dinklage but I defently don't think Ellen Page will get billed that high.

Wolverine,Mystique,and both versions of Xavier and Magneto are probally what Is going to be front and center In all the promation with maybe Beast,Trask and possibly Storm as backup strong figures In promation.

I expect In trailers for them to try to play up the future scenes as much as possable to get attention of some.
