The cast for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past seems to be growing bigger by the day and, today, IGN spoke with Singer about the 2014 release and asked him if he was eager to find some way to see Cyclops and Jean Grey appear.

"Who wouldn’t?," he laughed, mysteriously. "Who wouldn’t? That’s all I can say."

James Marsden and Famke Janssen played Cyclops and Jean Grey, respectively, in Singer's X-Men and X2 before both character were killed off in Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand. Given the time-travel plotline of the new film, however, both characters have the potential to effortlessly return to the franchise.

Set for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne's comic book storyline that ran in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981. "Days of Future Past" introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

The film's confirmed cast includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Peter Dinklage.
