'The Wolverine' & 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Get Surprise Cameos

After the series of confirmations from cast and crew, namely director Bryan Singer, that the X-Men: First Class followup would attempt to adapt the time travel tale Days of Future Past, every actor who had a role in the X-Men trilogy was asked at every opportunity whether they'd be returning. The storyline allows the next X-Men tentpole to feature both the cast from the First Class prequel and the original trilogy via multiple timelines, and the oft complex plot device could also be used to rectify certain continuity and story issues present in the series.

Playing with the concept of time also allows the film to bring back characters who were seemingly killed off in earlier films. For the most part, almost all of the main mutant heroes from the trilogy are returning, alongside the core characters of X-Men: First Class, but there were noticeably a few absentees.

Famke Janssen - despite having a small cameo in The Wolverine - hasn't been confirmed or announced to return for X-Men: Days of Future Past and no one's heard from James Marsden - who was robbed of an important role and killed off in the intro of X-Men: The Last Stand- about returning either. Whether or not Jean Grey and Cyclops still have a role to play in the current state of the X-Men film universe remains to be seen, but we can safely expect there to be several guest appearances in Twentieth Century Fox's upcoming Marvel films. We may already know about two of them.

What lays ahead can be considered possible spoilers on cameos for The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
