No Cyclops In X-Men: Days Of Future Past Says James Marsden; Thinks Whedon Should Do Kitty Pryde Movie


9964 Sorry, Cyclops fans, the one-eyed optically powered mutant will not be appearing in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, at least played by James Marsden.

Marsden has a featured roll in the upcoming comic book movie, 2 Guns, and Vulture caught up with the actor to ask about Bryan Singer's new X-Men flick.

James Marsden says he won't be in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but says you never know in regards to the sequels.

No, no X-Men, unfortunately. But who knows? If this next film really works, Bryan [Singer] has said he wants to fix a few things, so hopefully that's one of them. It was great, to have a movie like that, the first two or three X-Men, and the studios in Hollywood work really hard to find a formula that's successful, and you want to keep that intact, so ...

Marsden also remarks that he would like to see Professor X and Magneto spinoff movies, and when Kitty Pryde is mentioned, says Joss Whedon should get the call.

Who knows? It could happen. Maybe Joss Whedon is the guy to do that one.

2 Guns hits this Friday with James Marsden also appearing in the upcoming movies: The Loft, Red Machine, Lee Daniels' The Butler where he plays John F. Kennedy, and Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

X-Men: Days of Future Past has a May 23, 2014 release date starring Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, ShawnAshmore, with Hugh Jackman reprising as Wolverine, and returning cast members Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan.
