It's just been revealed that yet another mutant will play a role in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Just in case you didn't think there were enough mutants already, Toad will be back! It will be a younger version of the mutant played by Evan Jonigkeit. Ray Park played Toad in the first movie.
The news comes from Jonigkeit himself during an interview with MTV in which he revealed he was playing Toad, and then went on to explain how he prepared for the role,
"I read a lot of the comic books. I found out the storyline of my character, who is Toad. X-Men fans will know that Ray Park played him in the first movie, so it's a generation story of how he came to be. It's really cool."
He didn't give any details on his look in the movie, but he does say that it will be different from how the character was portrayed in the first movie.
"The aesthetics of the character are much different, and I'm not really allowed to say a whole lot more than that."
When asked specifically about the aesthetic changes he said,
"It's darker. I would say it's a darker tone."
I like Toad, and it will be fun to see how they end up utilizing him in this storyline. I doubt he has a big role, but we'll see. The movie is set to be released on May 23rd, 2014!
