Jason Flemyng, the actor who played him in X-Men: First Class, spoke about his feelings towards not appearing in the film:

Initially I was gutted, but then I remembered I had to get up at two in the morning, I had to be painted red and be slightly out of focus and posed a lot, and that was sort of it. Now I don’t have to do that. I’ve had twins so I’m quite glad to stay at home. It’s filmed in Canada and it takes about seven months so I’m quite glad to be at home.

As for the final bit of news on this superhero film, director Bryan Singer and actor James McAvoy did an video interview with digitalspy on the film:

X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled for a July 18, 2014 release date.
