Adan Canto as Sunspot in X-men?

Adan Canto as Sunspot in X-men?

by Christopher DillardJune 30, 2013

Ok, this is getting crazy. How many X-men are we going to see in Days of Future Past and when will these announcements ever stop?!? The latest to join the Bryan Singer fox film is Adan Canto, known for his role on The Following television show on Fox. He posted a vague hint of his character on Twitter stating “I might turn into a ball of fire if someone pisses me off.” Now this could be any number of pyrokinetic mutants in the Marvel universe. However, the top two contenders were Sunspot and Sunfire. Either way, not many people are going to recognize the difference in either one.

Later after this social media mystery was posted, we got another bit of fun information in a response to a fan’s tweet that said “”I’m excited for @adancanto as Sunspot!!” In a quick response, Mr. Canto responded “Thanks! Next summer.” This wouldn’t have much credit to it, due to the similarity of names or his enthusiasm to respond to fan tweets, regardless of the included character name. The real icing on the cake was the deletion of the tweet almost immediately after. This leads me to speculate 2 things. 1. The fan in question was correct! or 2. The fan was wrong and he realized the mistake after the fact.

Well, now we’re in a conundrum to speculate which fire-based character Adan Canto will be playing, but most rumors are leaning towards Sunspot, pictured above. Who is the newest mutant joining Days of Future Past that you’re most excited for?
