While many of the original trilogy’s cast is back, one person who won’t be returning for Bryan Singer’s upcoming superhero epic “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is James Marsden.
Out doing “2 Guns” promotion, Marsden confirmed he and his Cyclops character are not onboard the project:
“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.
I always liked Cyclops, but they have a lot of characters that they have to parcel out, spend time with each one, make sure everyone feels like they’ve been given their due, introduce them appropriately.”
