With the futuristic costumes of the X-Men finally revealed for the post-apoaclytic Sentinel controlled future in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘, we now get another shot from the future. This time around we see Omar Sy (‘The Intouchables’,’Micmacs’) in his role as Bishop, a time travelling X-Men. While his intentions are often good (but often misguided), his solution to a problem is murder and not trying other ways to work things out.
While Bishop was not initially a big player in the ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ story line, he has tangled quite often with ‘X-Force‘ as well as trying to prevent Apocalypse from rising to power. There’s no news quite yet on how active he will be in this film or if he’s mainly there to lead into one of, or both, of the other two upcoming story lines. Since Bishop is often a man out of time possessed by an obsessive goal of killing multiple current saviors of mutant-kind (who end up destroying it), I wonder if we’ll be seeing that side of him or how he was before being sent into the past.
Next up we have a new action shot of Jennifer Lawrence (‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘,’X-Men: First Class‘) as Mystique. We’ve already seen quite a bit of her but this is probably the most she’s done aside from just stand around in the first preview photos.
So what do you think of the images? While we’re familiar with Lawrence’s Mystique, it’s nice to see a good image of Sy as Bishop, don’t you think?
