x-men bishop

UPDATE: The rumors were true and X-Men: Days of Future Past did indeed have a panel–and you can watch the full panel here!

Despite having no officially announced panel (though you’d be a fool to think it won’t happen in Hall H sometime this weekend) at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, X-Men: Days of Future Past has made its presence well known at the Con so far this year.  In addition to the appearance of Sentinels (which doesn’t bode well for the mutants in the upcoming film), the film has now released character portraits of some of the main cast and characters—including our first look at the mutant Bishop!

Omar Sy will play Bishop in the upcoming film—the character is part of a mutant police force of the future who gets sent back to present-day to join the X-Men.  It’s all rather headache-inducing time-travel stuff, but suffice to say you can expect a lot more in the film, which will use such plot devices to bridge the original X-Men trilogy of films to the recent X-Men: First Class.  But hey, you came for the pictures, right?

X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellan, Patrick Steward, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Halle Bery, Omar Sy, Anna Paquin, Nicholas Hoult, and many more.  It is set for a May 23, 2014 release date.

What do you think of the images?
