Not a big surprise but a disappointment for those of us hoping he might appear. James Marsden confirms no DOFP for him:

He has turned out to be a really versatile actor. He is great in comedies. I hope he returns at some point.

You had me worried you were going to say Kelsey Grammer.

Still holding onto hope...

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

I think him and Rebecca Romijn are possible given that younger versions of their characters are in the film. In some way Beast and Mystique's fate in the future will be addressed. But both have the same problem, will they want to spend all that time in make up for a small amount of screen time? Which also raises budget issues. Interesting how all the major characters in makeup are blue! Them along with Nightcrawler.

It seems like James Marsden is being genuine. But he would be the easiest last minute addition for a cameo at the end. Similar to how Xavier was shown to be alive at the end of The Wolverine. No makeup, all he would need to do is wear his costume and visor. Heck he would not even need that. Could be civilian clothes with the glasses.

I would've expected a Marsden return (Cyclops' death in X3 notwithstanding) before a Grammer one because Singer cast Marsden but Grammer was cast by either Matthew Vaughn (when he was attached to X3) or Ratner (can't remember who).

Marsden's role in TLS was cut short in part because he went off to do Superman Returns with Singer, so I hope that Singer will perhaps in a future film repay him for that.

How many films has Matthew Vaughn dropped out of directing? It seems he is willing to move on whenever a better offer comes along. Does not commit often to projects he is signed on for. His wife should be suspicious if he is talking to other women.

If this next film really works, Bryan has said he wants to fix a few things
He wants to fix things if the film works? So it's all dependent on how DOFP does, and the "fixing" won't happen in DOFP itself?

I guess Marsden really was just coincidentally sitting next to Halle on the plane...

I think you are reading way too much into his comments. Only so much came be done in a single movie. This is going to be a sequel to First Class and to the main X-men films. Its got a lot of ground to cover. I hope it works as its own story. Not just as a check list of fixing things.

^Yes, and Marsden isn't even in the film and presumably hasn't read the script. So he has no idea what's going to happen in this one and what, if anything, it will do to the existing X-Timelines.

I'm an old Cyke fan who thought he got shortchanged in the films, but if they're bringing Xavier back, then Cyke should stay dead, so that there's still a tragic cost to Jean having become Phoenix. After all, she didn't destroy the Planet of the Asparagus People in the films....

There's always the tragic cost of Jean herself. ( Not to mention the people she disintegrated. )

But as far as Cyclops goes he could stay dead and it wouldn't much bother me.

Re: X-MEN: Days Of Future Past (Casting, Rumors, Pics till release)

Matthew Vaughn has dropped out of two specific films, and we still do not know why he dropped out of "Days of Future Past", it can't have been just because he wanted to do Millar's "The Secret Service". I mean he passed on "Kick-Ass 2" because he wanted to focus on "Days of Future Past". "X3" he dropped out due to "personal reasons".

I'm not disappointed regarding Scott. I did think there could be a possibility of Marsden coming back somehow. Perhaps that still might be the case for future films. I suppose it really depends on how much the time traveling aspect of Days affects the entire mythos.
