Bishop and Warpath Added to X-Men: Days of Future Past


Someone needs to keep X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer away from the social media for a bit so he can actually work on his movie.

Singer has once again gone post happy, but this time with a Vine video showing us all of the cast chairs for the film with their character names on them. Included in the video were two unannounced characters: Bishop and James “Warpath” Proudstar (pictured above in his latest costume).

This of course doesn’t give us much to go on, but may fill in some of the unknown cast. Booboo Stewart is a Native American who has not had his role announced, so it only makes sense he would play Warpath. And speculation had already run to Omar Sy playing Bishop, so that appears to be a reality.

Don’t feel bad if you’re never heard of either character. Warpath is a fairly unknown character outside of hardcore X-Men readers, and Bishop… well, Bishop is pretty much why I stopped reading X-Men books for a long stretch because I got so sick of him. He’s a time traveller, however, and it makes sense he would fit into this story. Can’t say I’m thrilled to see him show up, but it won’t kill the movie for me.

Now, if Singer would just put down his phone long enough to actually film this thing.
