X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Comic Con Conference with Video: 14 Cast Members Attend

Posted on July 21, 2013 at 9:01 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Fox had a surprise press conference for those who stuck around after The Wolverine and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes conferences—X-Men: Days of Future Past. And they weren’t messing around. They brought 17 members to the event, 14 of whom were cast. The cast in attendance were: Lucas Till (Havoc), Peter Dinklage (Possible Bolivar Trask), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian KcKellan (Magneto), Halle Berry (Storm), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Kitty Pride), Omar Sy (Bishop), and finally, director Bryan Singer. It was quite a sight, and you can check out the entire press conference below.

There was a lot of great information discussed, but some of the highlights were:

  • X-Men Last Stand will be rendered partially void. Singer stated that when you deal with time travel, things will inevitably change. Of course, he didn’t mention messing with his two films, but then again those don’t really need any help.
  • It was confirmed that Wolverine would be the one “time jumping”. Kitty Pride would help send Wolverine’s consciousness pack in time. Wolverine was the perfect candidate because he doesn’t age, and he’s the coolest.
  • There was a lot of great back and forth between the cast. The old cast made jokes at the new cast’s expense, and the new class beat each other up.
  • Jennifer Lawrence poked herself with her mic.
  • The new cast talked about enjoying their time with the older cast.  McAvoy seems to be the one doing the most interacting and said he was in awe of their presence on set.
  • Halle Berry said that is was great to be back with all her old friends, and to meet some new ones.
  • Sadly, because there was so much talent on stage, some people got lost in the shuffle, no one asked Dinklage a question, and as I was directly in front of him in the first row I could see he was bummed.  During the group photo I asked, “Peter who do you plat?”  Without missing a beat he replied “Mystique.”

So check out the videos for the full rundown. Definitely worth your time.
