X-Men: Days of Future Past Tidbits: Cameos, Spider-Man Cross-Promotion



Rogue – is she in, is she out? We heard early on that she had been completely cut, but then she kept showing up on magazine covers and in trailers. The latest, as reported by Vulture, is comforting both for rogue fans and folks like me who thought last night’s trailer may have given away too damn much plot. It seems they couldn’t cut her out completely, because she has one scene that’s pivotal to the story. Also, three more mutants – which Vulture hints are characters/actors from previous films, though it doesn’t specifically say that – have as-yet unannounced appearances, but it seems even revealing their names would be plot spoilers.

Meanwhile, Empire is reporting that even though press screenings of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the UK had no post-credits scene, one will be added…for X-Men: Days of Future Past, fueling unhealthy speculation of a cross-studio crossover that will most likely not happen.

So who do you think the mutant cameos will be, and why would even mentioning their names give away the plot? It’s Doop, isn’t it?

Better be Doop.
