James Marsden won't return for 'X-Men'
London: Actor James Marsden will not be reprising his role as Cyclops in the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.
Several past X-Men actors are set to appear in the follow-up to 'X-Men: First Class', including Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry, reported Digital Spy.
Although Marsden's character died in a previous 'X-Men' film, rumours sparked in May that he was gearing up for an on-screen resurrection.
It was reported that Marsden could possibly be up for a cameo in the film when a journalist spotted him and Berry on the same flight to Montreal, where part of 'Days of Future Past' was shot.
"If this next film really works, Bryan has said he wants to fix a few things, so hopefully Cyclops's death is one of them. We'll see. I always liked Cyclops, but they have a lot of characters that they have to parcel out, spend time with each one, make sure everyone feels like they've been given their due, introduce them appropriately, but you could do a spinoff of every one of those characters and give them so much depth to the storyline," he said.
