More casting news has arrived for the Sony PlayStation Network adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming-created comic series Powers as Sharlto Copley and Michelle Forbes have signed on for active duty!

Variety reports that Copley (pictured) will play Christian Walker, described as a dapper and charismatic character with a darkness and violence right at the surface but with a sense of buried integrity. Walker has the dissolute air of a faded rock star and the body of a battered heavyweight.

Once possessed of super-powers, Walker lost those abilities in a battle with a super-human mass killer. A faded hero, he’s now a detective who works with law enforcement, using his singular expertise to investigate crimes in the Powers community.

X-Men: Days of Future Past extended director’s cut not arriving until next year

6 August 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of last month, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that an extended Director’s Cut of this year’s mutant superhero smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past would be arriving later this year. However, if you were planning on putting off buying the theatrical version – which arrives in October – in order to wait for the extended edition, then we have some bad news for you as 20th Century Fox’s Evp of Marketing Communications James Finn has stated via Twitter that the extended cut won’t be out until 2015. So, it seems any Anna Paquin fans out there are going to have to wait a little longer before they get to see Rogue back in action…

Will you be picking up the theatrical edition of X-Men: Days of Future Past, or do you plan on holding off for the extended cut?
