Yet another mutant is returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past

Jan. 7, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Boy, I thought we were done with announcing more characters being added to X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, but it looks like at the very least we have one more to add to the roster. MTV learned that young actor Evan Jonigkeit will be playing a younger version of Toad. Toad, the maligned and cheesy supporting villain, was previously played by Ray Park in Bryan Singer's original X-MEN. From the sounds of it, Jonigkeit will be playing Toad during the FIRST CLASS time period and give us a "darker" take on the comic character.

Based on Jonigkeit's limited filmography (short films and soap opera work), I would think this is a small role used to flesh out the mutant world of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. This doesn't prohibit the role from being expanded for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, but with the already bursting at the seams cast for the movie, I would opt to think this is a smaller role.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has been adding characters as often as roles like Anna Paquin's Rogue have been cut for story reasons. I just hope that the final product lives up to the potential that we have all built for it based on the teaser trailer alone.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST stars Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till. It hits theaters on May 23, 2014.

Actually enjoy this casting since it'll bridge the character between the two films. Too bad we may not see Liev Schneider come back as Sabertooth and give some more dimension to that character.

as it should be, because you know the whole Kitty Pride character will bring the fans in droves, since she was from the best X-Men movie right?

Nope, I mean and really hope ... the story more like X-men First class... they work as team, not Wolverine the main character (for god sakes.... cyclops is leader of X-men , and look x-men 1-3.....what cyclops became ?...)

I think that's a neat idea, and helps connect the films together. I wonder if they will explain the absence of the other mutants that joined Magneto at the end of First Class, like Emma Frost and Azazel. As far as I know they aren't in the film.

I believe I read not to long ago that they filmed a past scene with Azazel, if I remember correctly the scene was something to do with presidentiall assasinanation attemp in the past.

I like the fact that Singer is expanding the universe, but I would rather see him bring back Nightcrawler, older Beast, and/or Gambit. Those are essential X-Men characters that these next two films need.

I feel like we are getting all of these new characters because they have begun to look at what Marvel has done. Every character they have on screen pretty much is straight from the comics appropriate to the storyline. Why populate your world with random [link] when you can simply make them a preexisting character.

Definetly. And in my opinion, this is a good move. Singer could do many cool things with all these mutants now that the industry has changed and he has a much bigger budget.
So this and next movie will be the very first epic, huge and entertaining movies, lol

Thats cool and all, but, where the fuck is Cyclops? I've given up on Gambit long ago. Oh well, maybe they will for Apocalypse.

The only thing that seems to be disappointing me right now with all of the returning characters, is that we won't be getting an older Beast played by Kelsey Grammer.

I understand cutting Rogue and bringing back Toad

Anna Paquin is a major star thanks to TRUE BLOOD, and would probably want a fair amount of screen and dialogue time. Recasting Toad and using him as background would populate the X-Men universe without having to give everybody some face time.

I hope Bryan Singer knocks this one out of the park. It's a real "home run or die" situation.

Anna's scene was shot. It was later cut in editing due to pacing issues. Also, she is a star because she won a gad dammed Oscar at age 11.

Her Oscar win put her on the map as an actress but she was strictly second tier until TRUE BLOOD hit. Other than FLY AWAY HOME and MARGARET (which came out after TRUE BLOOD), she didn't have any other starring roles.
