X2 Sunspot

Sunspot, who has the ability to convert solar energy into all kinds of useful powers like flight and intense heat, was originally a member of the team in First Class, but director Matthew Vaughn had to cut him out of the movie. Here he is explaining to Bleeding Cool why that had to happen:

The X-Men we used were already chosen by Bryan and Fox. In the draft they gave me all of the characters were in there. We cut Sunspot because we didn’t have enough time or money. They couldn’t make him work, he was a pain the ass.

Well it seems Bryan Singer is indeed a fan of Sunspot, because he's been cast in Days of Future Past. Adan Canto will be playing him, though it's unclear if his powered-up form will be making an appearance. We do know what that form will look like, though. Or, rather, what it would have looked like in First Class. Concept artist Josh Kao, who also designed Emma Frost's look for the last film, revealed the concept art on his website, and it looks pretty badass; like a man with a universe swirling inside him.
