X-Men fans director Bryan Singer announced via Twitter that Ellen Page and Anna Paquin have both signed on the join the latest installment of the superhero movie franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Page and Paquin are set to reprise their pre-Juno and True Blood roles as wall-defying Kitty Pryde and energy-sucking Rogue respectively. Their mutual love interest, Iceman as played by Shawn Ashmore, is also set to return.

The latest X-Men movie feels already stacked considering Ian McKellan (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier) will join their younger counterparts, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy. In addition, current Oscar nominees Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence will also reprise their superhero roles as the perpetually badass Wolverine and shape shifter, Mystique.

The movie revolves around time travelling so the age jump from X-Men: The Last Stand to now shouldn’t be out of place.
