3 more major characters returning for Days of Future Past

Bryan Singer seems to have decided that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be the film that brings everyone together.

We already knew about Singer's intention to have Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen meet their past selves, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, as alternate-timeline Charles Xavier and Magneto, but that's not all he's planning.  Over the weekend, Singer confirmed that three other actors would be returning to the roles they played in previous X-Men films.

It's a relief to see some of these actors return, but especially Ellen Page, who played the part of Kitty Pryde. In the original, comic version of Days of Future Past, Kitty plays a rather central role in the story.  It's also very exciting to see that both Rogue and Iceman will return.

Singer also recently tweeted about actor Hugh Jackman in a way that seems to confirm his involvement as well.

 

So far, that means we've got all the major players from X-Men: First Class confirmed, save for Moira MacTaggart and Emma Frost, plus the majority of Singer's previous X-films, with more names assuredly to come. If Patrick Stewart's words are anything to go by, that means Halle Berry, Famke Janssen, and Rebecca Romijn at least. Are we missing anybody else?
