With the upcoming release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past next week, opening on Thursday the 22nd May 2014, the stars of the film took a mutated stroll down the red carpet yesterday (13th May 2014) for the London premier, looking every bit the comic book legends that they’ve become. It’s a long list of extraordinary actors and actresses that have been brought together by the casting team behind the movie series that starts with Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman from the old guard and includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence from the new comers.
Combining the split timeframes of the original series with the guys from the X-Men: First Class movie, thanks to the time bending skills of both Professor X’s psychic powers and Kitty Pryde’s phasing ability, the film has a massive cast. While this does little for the movie’s wage bill, it does mean that the premiers are filled with an impressive line-up.
While a big chunk of the female cast members didn’t make it to the London premier, including Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Halle Berry (Storm) and Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), the lads were on tour in a big way. Stewart, McKellen, McAvoy and Fassbender looked larger than life, taking on the red carpet like they were the embodiment of their mutant powered alter egos, Professor X and Magneto.
Patrick Stewart, who plays the senior Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, arrives at the London premier with a very broad grin (probably secretly thinking, “but by then it was too late, I’d seen it all.”

Looks like Stanley Tucci putting in a random appearance! There’s no word of him starring in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but maybe there’s a cameo to look out for.
