More Actors From Original X-Men Returning New X-Men FilmYou didn’t see any of the actors from the original X-Men film in X-Men: First Class that is if you don’t count Hugh Jackman’s cameo in it as Wolverine. It was only logical though, as the movie was a prequel and guys like Magneto and Professor Xavier were young, which means many of the characters from the original films weren’t even born yet. But, the new X-Men film shall see many of the old characters returning and thus many of the old actors returning.

It was confirmed a few weeks ago that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen shall be reprising their roles from the original film and now it’s been confirmed that Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore shall also be reprising their roles. The new film shall obviously also see the reappearance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and it seems like every X-Men movie that is ever made shall see Wolverine in it, even if it’s in a cameo. Also, it seems Jackman will keep reprising his role as Wolverine till the time he is young enough to do so.

 Bryan Singer basically announced the return of the actors when he tweeted “Thank you @BrettRatner for letting them Actors From Original X-Men Returning New X-Men Filmlive!” Those baffled by the tweet need to be reminded that Ratner was the director of X-Men: The Last Stand and hand quite mercilessly disposed off many of the central characters in the film. But, he also let many of the important characters live, which Singer who is directing the new film has a lot to be thankful about. Interestingly it was Matthew Vaughn who was slated to return to direct this new film but he dropped out and the film fell into Singer’s lap.

There is no denying the fact Vaughn did a great job as a director with X-Men: First Class and gave the franchise a whole new and a fresh dimension, some would even go so far as to say he did a better job than Singer did on the original X-Men film. Hence Vaughn will be missed on this new project. In fact, when Vaughn was slated to helm the project he had even envisioned that he would make a direct sequel to X-Men: First Class and have it set in the 1970s. It would have reportedly covered events like the Kennedy assassination, the Civil Rights movement and the Vietnam war and how mutants were involved in all of them.
