It seems like Bryan Singer is pulling out all the stops for this ultimate joining of the X-Men universes.  The sequel’s director took to Twitter on Saturday to announce that original trilogy stars Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) have officially signed on:

“Very excited to welcome #annapaquin, @ellenpage & @shawnrashmore to #XMen #DaysofFuturePast…Thank you @BrettRatner for letting them live!”

The three young actors join the growing list of awesomeness that includes Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender (Magneto), and Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/Mystique).

In a new interview with Empire magazine, Singer said that he can’t wait for fans to see how huge the movie is going to be:

“I don’t think people realize how big this movie is going to be. We get to bring both casts together…We’ve cracked it in a way that it makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel. You have to create your rules and stick with them. That’s why ‘Terminator’ and ‘Back To The Future’ work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in ‘X-Men,’ certain powers that make this possible.”

Singer said that while he will always be associated with his two films, he is definitely trying to tie all the movies (including X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE and X-MEN: THE LAST STAND) together into one neat package:

“I’m taking into account every movie – I’m not just grabbing my first two movies and ‘First Class’ and smashing them together…I’m taking into account the entire universe as it’s been laid out so far on the screen, and really respecting it and trying to work with that. People took things in various directions, so there’s some clean-up. But ultimately I’m not just ignoring them.”
