We can add another mutant to X-Men: Days of Future Past as Bryan Singer has revealed the addition of Adan Canto.

Canto, who has a role in the new Fox series, The Following, which also stars fellow X-Men alumni, Kevin Bacon and Shawn Ashmore, was announced to be a part of the movie while filming in Montreal.

Members of the cast attended a Montreal Canadiens hockey game where we see an image that features Adan Canto.

In addition, Canto tweeted:

It's unknown which role the Mexican-born actor will be playing, but the best guesses include Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot, or Julio Esteban Richter aka Rictor.

Currently in the Marvel Comics, Rickter is a gay character, with Canto playing one in The Following as well.


X-Men: Days of Future Past has a July 14, 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.
