These past few months, numerous actors from the original X-Men trilogy of films were confirmed, one by one, to be reprising their roles in the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First class, titled Days of Future Past.

However, in what seems to be a break from all the recruiting going on, one character has been confirmed to not appear is Alan Cumming’s Nightcraweler, with Comingsoon.net getting official word from the production that the character will not be involved.

The news may come as a surprise to some because Cumming’s name was already brought up by James McAvoy once, as one of his costars in the forthcoming sequel.

“It’s huge,” said McAvoy to Heat Radio (via ComicBookMovie). “The cast is huge. You’ve got me, Nick Hoult, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage… ‘Huge’ Jackman‘s coming by. He is huge. He’s massive, he’s about 7’5″.”
