Bryan Singer Confirms Bishop and Warpath Are in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

     April 24, 2013


Following a few photos that revealed Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, and Shawn Ashmore in costume, director Bryan Singer has now shared a video from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently in production.  While the Vine doesn’t actually feature any human beings, Singer provides a snapshot of the actor chairs on set, revealing two previously unconfirmed mutants that are a part of the film.  In addition to Xavier, Magneto, Storm, Logan, Kitty Pryde, Bobby “Iceman” Drake, and Peter “Colossus” Rasputin, we also see chairs for the characters Bishop and James “Warpath” Proudstar.  Hit the jump for more, including which actors are likely playing the characters.

When French actor Omar Sy was first announced as joining the cast, he was rumored to be playing the mutant Bishop, the son of Aborigine mutant refugees notable for the distinctive M brand above his eye.  Now that Bishop has been confirmed, it’s likely that this is indeed Sy’s character.  The mutant was a member of Xavier’s Security Enforcers and is viewed as a bit of an antihero, as he eventually became one of the X-Men’s main adversaries.

As for Warpath, since Booboo Stewart is the only Native American actor in the cast, this is likely his role.  The character possesses superhuman strength and speed, and one imagines Stewart has been hitting the gym in order to get his physicality just right.
