Another day, another reveal of a character in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” by director Bryan Singer. The latest actress to get her time in Singer’s Twitter spotlight is Ellen Page, who is reprising her role as Kitty Pryde in the new movie.
“Hello, Kitty @EllenPage #XMen #DaysofFuturePast,” Singer tweeted.
In the “Days of Future Past” comics, Kitty is the character who brings the present and future X-Men storylines together. Assumedly she will have the same role in the movie, though hopefully Page will get a beefed up part from what she had in “X-Men: The Last Stand.”
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” features returning actors James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore, and newcomers Omar Sy, Adan Canto and Peter Dinklage. The movie is due in theaters on July 18, 2014.
The official plot synopsis says “the storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men.”
