I think the actor you least expected to come back will get the "and" credit.

The fact the actors from first Class aren't confirmed yet.Thus If Havok and Banshee make the cut It would seem like they are going to be recast.

I'd rather them recast then Introduce new characters.Remember any characters
they Introduce In 1973 they can't use In present day In future films.

And I think Bingbing will be in the future timeline as well. She's in her early 30s just like Anne, Daniel and Shawn so she could be the one of the X-Men in the future.
Well It's fairly obvious Blink will be a future character.You will just have to accept she's In the film.

With Banshee In particully hard to really buy him as adult.He looks too much like a teenager.

I'm beginning to think assuming the Brotherhood are gonna be the threat that needs to be stopped in 1973 might be off...

Looking at the cast I'm thinking maybe the traveller from the future alerts Xavier, who in turn has to get the brotherhood's help avert the threat.

So in 1973 there'd be:
Xavier
Magneto
Beast
Mystique
Maybe this new Stewart guy (Thunderbird perhaps?)
Maybe Emma (yet to be cast?)
Maybe Havok or Banshee or a new X-Men member not cast yet.

And lastly the Traveller (should be Kitty)

And in the future:

Old Xavier
Old magneto
Wolverine
Storm
Colossus
Rogue
Iceman
Bishop
Blink (if that's who she is)

Now the future line up might seem a little heavy but bear in mind they get killed off in quick order so they'd need a bigger starting line up, lol.

Anyways, I'm thinking this might be the case as Singer said he wanted to fix some of the continuity cock-ups from X3 to first class, and Charles and Eric at least being amicable again would be required for the start of X3 to stand (How Charles himself can stand is another matter...)

IGN: One thing that’s interesting about the alternate universe/timeline in Days of Future Past is that it could potentially give you the opportunity to revisit things that happened in the third film in terms of characters and endings that you might like to see changed.

Bryan Singer: You mean, what you’re politely saying is, “fix s**t.” Is that what you’re saying? That’s what I’m hearing. [Laughing]

IGN: [Laughing] Maybe…

Singer: There’s going to be a little of that, a few things I can repair.

IGN: Are fans going to be pleased with these things you will be repairing?

Singer: I think so, I think so, yes.

It definetly is a possibility, that the x-men have to work with the brotherhood on the 70's, and that could explain the short number of actual x-men, and if Kitty joins them, the roster would be pretty decent.

But personally, Id preffer the plot to be a bit more like the comics, where the brotherhood wants to kill a politician, and thats what leads to the creation of the sentinels and of course to their control of USA 30 years later.

To have the x-men and brotherhood working together would feel a bit like X2 at the same time, so again, I hope its closer to the comic.

we'll see what happens, so, Singer uses to do unexpected things, so who knows?

And I think your wrong.Look nobody Is saying It will be exactly like the comic
but they are sure to base sme things on core elements.Too may don't take Into
account Lauren Shueller Donnor has been wanting to do film based on DOFP.And
Bryan SInger has talked about doing some of cool moments from comics.

What do I mean by core elemets

Future with Sentinles
Time travel
X-Men of past warned of brotherhood plot that will lead to future with sentinles.
Human Is targeted by Brotherhood
X-Men Vs Brotherhood to save human

Think less of specific scenes from comic and mor using the core Ideas I just mentioned.They may even keep time travel close to comic by using mind switch of xavier's.

It's doudtful we see Sentinles In 1973.You would have to wonder well why weren't they used against mutants In trilogy then?And now the head In danger room In Last stand doesn't count.

The heart of DOFP Is antimutant humans prejudice towards mutants an dhow It back fires on whole world.Plus the Irony of brotherhood doing somehting they thought would make the world fear mutant's power only backfires.

Besides do you really think they will bring In new members of X-Men and Brotherhood and have another group of mutants In film.Besides there Is reason Nixon will be actual character In film.It makes more sense for Peter Dinklage Is involved with devolping the sentinles.He could be trask.Lang or even a new character.People are forgetting Bryan SInger already said he's not a CGI character.

It seems like on this board I am only one who wants a decent adaptian of core elements of DOFP.The rest seem to not care about being based on anything from comic except for Wolverine being killed In future.

I'm beginning to wonder if it will be more like Age of Apocalypse than Days of Future Past.

First the rumours that Apocalypse is in the story, and then Blink being added - a character from AoA who is nothing to do with DoFP.

I hope not! Too great and iconic stories to mix them just on one movie.

I really hope if Apocalypse appears, he is just a tease of next event or sequel, as many fans are hoping.

To mix two stories as big as those would be another wrong decision, and Id say even bigger than fixing Phoenix with The Cure

Hey, I didn't say I want this, it's just a 'maybe' thought on what Singer might have in mind considering the casting so far and what he said about fixing things. It's speculation and nothing more.

And I hope I'm wrong on this too: The closer they can keep it to the books the better, imo, but setting the 'present' back to 1973 is already a departure from that, it rules out the Kitty mind swap deal, so I'm open to any ideas as to how this will all work out.

The movie is said to be about Magneto's and Xavier's choices and destinies, and that isn't a part of the DoFP comic. But it is part of AoA, which arises after Xavier dies in the past. It's a bit similar to the animated story One Man's Worth.

Just a wild thought on my part. We already know from Singer the film is taking 'elements of DoFP but also some new things'. So it won't be just following the comics version. The films never have anyway.

Is Blink confirmed then? I'm not particularly a fan of any version of her in the comics, but the movies are an entirely new ballgame.

I've been saying for a while that i think this movie will be an amalgamation of DoFP, One Man's Worth, and AoA. Making Xavier the target makes for the tightest story and is the best way to bring the casts together imo...

Look we know changes were made since It was present day In comic and here It's 1973.
The future was future version of present day characters here we have only 2 characters In
both timelines(as far as we know)

Now If It Is magneto responable for the event In 1973 and Xavier who time travels through
mind switch that would fit SInger's comments.

People are making way too much of Apocalypse comment.He at one pointed hinted at nightcrawler more than STorm yet STorm Is confirmed and Nightcrawler Isn't.

There Is reason Nixon Is actully character and not just on newsreels.Plus some convently
forget the Peter Dinklage Isn't playing CGI character.

There will be some things In this film based on core elements from Comic storyline.While others will be new.

you definetly has some points.

I just hope you're wrong lol

I think the relationship of old Charles and Erik could be added easily to the story of Days of future past of the comic. All it would need is just a few scenes between them on the future scenes, and thats it.

But to include Age of Apocalypse plots and characters would be too much, like seriously. Too huge of a saga to fix it with DOFP. Its a huge wrong mistake, when Fox could do Two or even Three epic movies using the two stories, but separately.

Like I said before... if they combine DoFP with AoA it could end up looking like the Dark Phoenix Saga combined with the Cure storyline.

At least DoFP and AoA have common themes of alternate futures and such.

Hopefully this movie will just focus on DOFP and at the end, they could tease that AoA is going to be the story of the next X-Men movie.

I don't think AoA will be in here. At least not Apocalypse himself. They should save that for another movie. Build up to it ykno. But maybe just maybe, have him be the super mastermind behind everything. Arg we're all setting ourselves up for so much aren't we? I hope there are real surprises here.

To have asian actress as Psylocke means some reconning since she was listed as psylocke In credits for Last Stand.And with both Kitty and Rogue I doudt Jubilee will be In film.Thunderbird Is a good suggestion for the other actor.

The list of photos Is Intresting.Jennifer Lawrence may get second billing.Also Notice Patrick Stewert and Ian Mckellen photos are up after Hugh,Jennifer,James Mcavoy,and Michael Fassbender.It will be Intresting to see who get placed between Peter Dinklage and Halle Berry.Also notice Ellen Page Is pictured before Anna Paquin.That again makes me curious how the screentime between Rogue and Kitty are balanced.

Also intresting to see Patrick and Ian's pictures before Nicholas Hoult and Dinklage.

Don't forget we know one of remaining roles will be Nixon.So we know we have nixon and at least 3 other characters to be casted.
Billing perhaps, but unlikely.

But I seriously doubt the photo placement has anything to do with screen time. If that's the case this movie is already in trouble as Mystique should never get more screen time than core X-Men characters in this particular storylines.
