Cyclops will not be in the upcoming X-Men movie


What? What is this garbage?! So Cyclops ISN’T going to be in the new X-Men: Days of Future Past movie?! This makes no sense to me since Cyclops is the iconic leader of the X-Men. Most of us know how much of an impact his character makes on the team, and not having him in the new movies, to me, is complete and utter horse-pitooty.

Vulture was able to catch up with James Marsden, who played Cyclops in the first three X-Men, and here’s what he said about the rumors surrounding him reprising his role:

And X-Men: Days of Future Past next year, or no? I mean, Cyclops was disintegrated, but if there’s time travel …
No, no X-Men, unfortunately. But who knows? If this next film really works, Bryan [Singer] has said he wants to fix a few things, so hopefully that’s one of them. It was great, to have a movie like that, the first two or three X-Men, and the studios in Hollywood work really hard to find a formula that’s successful, and you want to keep that intact, so…

Did you have a chance to see The Wolverine yet? Because Jean Grey, even though she’s dead, gets to have a lot of moments in it. 

No, I haven’t seen it yet, just the trailer … but I hope that lays the ground for more. We’ll see. I always liked Cyclops, but they have a lot of characters that they have to parcel out, spend time with each one, make sure everyone feels like they’ve been given their due, introduce them appropriately, but you could do a spinoff of every one of those characters and give them so much depth to the story line.

I’m going to guess that Storm or Wolverine will be the leaders in the following film, since they do separate the team into different teams in the comic book. However deep down inside, I really wish they do re-shoots and bring back Marsden since Cyclops was basically a non-player in X-Men: The Last Stand. Bryan Singer, if you’re listening and are going to make things right again post-Ratner, then BRING BACK THE REAL TEAM LEADER, CYCLOPS!!!
