June 25, 2013
The Wrap is reporting that Australian actor Josh Helman has been cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past in a "secret role." Lest we begin to think that the star of "The Pacific" has joined as a one-off character, the outlet is also reporting that Helman will be on the set for several weeks meaning his character will be of some importance to the story. Who do you think Helman is playing in the film? Sound off with your theory below!
Starring Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters and Boo Boo Stewart, the mutant ensemble hits theaters on May 23, 2014.
The film is 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.
