Iceman's all grown up in 1st look at Ashmore in Days of Future Past

Though he’s gone on to co-star in the hit Fox series The Following, most sci-fi fans remember Shawn Ashmore from his X-Men role as young Bobby Drake, aka Iceman. Well, it looks like Iceman is all grown up.

Director Bryan Singer has released a new set pic from X-Men: Days of Future Past, showing Ashmore in character as Iceman. But instead of looking like a young student at Xavier’s School, Iceman is now sporting a beard and a leather jacket.

Since filming just ramped up this week, it’ll be interesting to see how large a role Ashmore has in the film. He’s one of many making the return trip, as the flick combines the casts of First Class and the original X-Men trilogy. The list includes Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Ellen Page,  Halle Berry, Anna Paquin and a few new additions.

Check out the set pic below and let us know what you think Iceman will be doing while the X-Men fight against a future where mutants are hunted down by giant, robotic Sentinels.
