As you can see from the Tweet below, Bryan Singer has confirmed that Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore will indeed reprise their roles as Rogue, Shadowcat and Iceman in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When we last saw these three, Rogue was powerless, Iceman finally took on an appearance closer to that of his comic book counterpart and Kitty had proven herself by facing off against the Juggernaut. However, does the fact that he thanks X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner for not killing them off mean that we won't get to also see Cyclops and Jean Grey return? The former was not treated at all well in the third and final instalment of the original trilogy as his commitment to Superman Returns meant he was rather unceremoniously killed off. Regardless, there's now only a few other cast members left who we have yet to hear from in regards to a possible return in this film. Are you pleased that these three will be back?
Very excited to welcome #annapaquin, @ellenpage & @shawnrashmore to #XMen #DaysofFuturePast - thank you @brettratner for letting them live!
