Adan Canto of "The Following" confirmed on Twitter this weekend that he has signed on for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though he didn't say which character he will be portraying in the movie, he had a cryptic reply when asked about upcoming projects: "I might turn into a ball of fire if someone pisses me off." This leaves a few possibilities for his role - the Brazillian mutant Sunspot is one option or Canto could have been recast in the role of Pyro. Check back here for future confirmation on his role.

The Marvel Comics mutant ensemble's big cast also includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart.

The film will be based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and 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.

X-Men: Days of Future Past began production on Monday and hits theaters on July 18, 2014.
