    Cool X2's (X-Men-2) New Mutants

    New Mutants In X2

    MTV.com reported that X2, the upcoming X-Men sequel film, will feature a whole new host of mutant superheroes. Among the newcomers: Colossus, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Siryn, Pyro, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Beast and Gambit, a spokesperson at 20th Century Fox told the site.

    Colossus, a Russian-born mutant who can turn into steel, will be played by Daniel Cudmore. Jubilee, an Asian-American teen capable of conjuring bursts of energy, will be played by Kea Wong. Kitty Pryde, a teenager from Illinois who can pass through objects and who later adopts the name Sprite or Shadowcat, will be played by Katie Stuart. Siryn, a young Irish woman who can emit sonic screams, will be played by Shauna Kain, the site reported. As previously reported, Aaron Stanford will appear as Pyro, and Alan Cumming will be Nightcrawler.

    In addition, Shawn Ashmore will return as Bobby "Iceman" Drake, and there will be small cameos as part of a montage scene of the blue-furred Beast and the card-throwing Gambit. Fox has also confirmed to MTV.com that Toad (Ray Park) and Sabretooth (Tyler Mane) will not return in the sequel, which is slated for a May 2, 2003, release.

    But will they learn from Spiderman? I really like the original X-Men movie, but they did seem to be ashamed of the comic book origins. I hope that at least a few of the comics elements make it into the new film.

    Cool More "mutant" news from the Director

    Singer Teases X2

    Bryan Singer, director of the upcoming X-Men sequel film, told SCI FI Wire that a few new mutants will appear in the movie, a few old ones will not, and a new villain will emerge, played by veteran character actor Brian Cox. In a spoilery interview at the Comic-Con International in San Diego, Singer said, "Young Pyro is in it, with young Bobby Drake [as] Iceman [and] ... Nightcrawler." Singer told a Comic-Con audience that Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming) will have the blue skin and pointed ears of his comic character, with scars from his past in the circus.

    As for the film's chief nemesis, Singer said in an interview, Cox "plays a character named William Stryker, but he's ... not a religious figure. He's a military guy. So he's kind of a couple of characters combined. But he has a history with ... a lot of the characters. He's a human nemesis from their past. They all know him. They remember. He was there. When they were emerging, he was emerging, in his own way." Cox is best known for playing Hannibal Lecter in 1986's Manhunter.

    Characters that didn't make the cut include Jubilee, Toad (played in the first film by Ray Park) and Sabretooth (Tyler Mane). Gambit makes an appearance, "but not as a [main] character," Singer said. Storm, played by newly minted Oscar-winner Halle Berry, will have a lot more to do, he added. "Oh, yeah. She brought the gold statue and said, 'I want more,'" he joked.

    Singer unveiled a new trailer for the film at Comic-Con, featuring Professor X (Patrick Stewart) playing chess with Magneto (Ian McKellen) in his plastic prison, a commando raid on the Xavier School, a shot of Pyro (Aaron Stanford) demonstrating his fire powers, and glimpses of fighting Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). The trailer proved popular with the fans, who asked that it be run twice.
