X-Men will always be remembered as the film which began Marvel's dominance over 21st century Hollywood. The series will come full circle, in a sense, this month when Days of Future Past hits our screens, but one original favourite who has yet to be mentioned in Bryan Singer's upcoming franchise connector is Cyclops.
James Marsdon was responsible for bringing that character to the screen for the original trilogy so when he sat down with Crave Online to discuss his upcoming appearance in Walk of Shame, he had plenty to say on where he, and Cyclops, are at with the series:
I’ve always been very proud of my role and it’s out of my hands. It’s nice to see Bryan [Singer] go back in and turn the boat a little bit. I’m happy for those that made it back. I’d like to. I get excited watching the trailers because I’m excited for the continuance of the X-Men world. I’m a fan of X-Men and I know it’ll be a kick ass movie.
Marsden went on to speak about the Marvel phenomenon as a whole and about what a pleasant surprise it was to have his particular instalments so warmly received:
I loved being a part of those movies. It was a great group of people. It was rare to get fans excited for a comic book movie, and do well at the box office with films that critics loved, too. I mean nobody doesn’t like them.
Would you guys like to see Marsden reprise the role? Would that even fit with what DOFP is suggesting at all? Let off some steam in the comments below.
