Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, Shadowcat, Professor X, Magneto and Colossus are the confirmed characters from the original X-Men trilogy that will each make an appearance. Mystique, Beast, Magneto, Professor X, and Havok are the confirmed characters from X-Men First Class that will make an appearance. Director Bryan Singer recently revealed that an action sequence featuring Rogue and a few of her X-cohorts has been cut from the film. Evan Jonigkeit is playing a 1973 version of X-Men villain Toad. The appearances of characters like Future-Day Mystique, Future-Day Beast, Jean Gray, Cyclops, Pyro, Juggernaut, Angel, Banshee, Sabertooth, Deadpool, Young Cyclops and Gambit have been neither confirmed nor denied. Although Jean Gray and Cyclops (along with other characters) are presumed to be dead, the time-travel theme this film is based on, or an unexpected plot twist, could justify their appearance. Emma Frost and Azazel were both discarded from the story. Nightcrawler was meant to be part of the film, but actor Alan Cumming declined due to high make-up requirements for his character.
