Bryan Singer, you magnificent bastard. Almost every day on twitter he delivers us with another glimpse at the upcoming X-men: Days of Future Past, which began filming Monday. Over the weekend, we posted about seeing Patrick Stewart suiting up as Professor X again, and today he treats us to a brand new surprise, Shawn Ashmore as Iceman!
Unlike Iceman of previous films, this one is much older and may appear to have a permanent sort of ice look to him, hence the orange dots. They are used for tracking in animation and film effects, so who knows how it will end up? Needless to say, the more I see, the more excited I get. This isn’t the first image of a blue comic book character we’ve peeked at today, but each one has given me electrifying cold chills. Check it out below and share your excitement with the rest of us.
Opening in theaters on July 18, 2014, the movie also stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart.
