Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde
A fan favorite since the early 1980's, Kitty Pride (aka Shadowcat) is the one member of the X-Men who somehow never got her due in the initial film series. Ellen Page came on board pre-"Juno" to play her in "X-Men: The Last Stand," but it was hardly the charismatic and brave mutant who became one of the greatest X-Men of them all. Even if it was for a few scenes, you'd hope Matthew Vaughn and Page could give us a little more of the Pryde we were looking for this time around. Plus, an older Kitty is a central character in the original "Days of Future Past" storyline. How could she not be included?
