Jason Flemyng has conceded that he will not be appearing in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The actor portrayed mutant villain Azazel in X-Men: First Class but has said that he is unlikely to reprise the role for next year's sequel.

"I don't think I will be back. Initially I was gutted, but then, I remembered I had to get up at two in the morning, I had to be painted red and be slightly out of focus and posed a lot, and that was sort of it. Now I don't have to do that," he told the Irish Independent.

X-Men: First Class cast members Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult will return for the Bryan Singer-directed sequel.

They will team up with X-Men trilogy stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Halle Berry for the time-travel story.
