So far, the majority of the announced cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past have been returning mutants, but what about new mutants. Well hint, hint, Bryan Singer‘s dropped a little knowledge on us this morning in the form of a Vine video. The 6-second clip from the social networking site reveals several directors chairs with the names of various X-Men characters on them. So we get to see names like “Magneto,” “Storm,” “Kitty Pryde,” “Bobby ‘Iceman’ Drake,” and… Wait, what’s that? “Bishop,” and “James ‘Warpath’ Proudstar?!
To the uninitiated, Warpath is the brother of John Proudstar, a mutant who went by the code name Thunderbird and joined the X-Men after the original team was kidnapped by Krakoa, the living island. Thunderbird was killed on another mission a short time later, but his brother James would go on to join the upstart mutant group X-Force. Bishop, meanwhile, is a refugee from the future where mutants were rounded up into concentration camps by Sentinels. After being liberated, Bishop joined a group of mutant cops only to end up going back in time to the 20th century during the pursuit of a mutant fugitive.
So who’s playing Bishop and Warpath? Well, French actor Omar Sy was already rumored to be playing Bishop in the film, and Booboo Stewart, by virtue of being Native American, is probably a safe bet for Warpath.
Days of Future Past is currently in production for a July 18, 2014 release. The film co-stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.
