Omar Sy - Bishop
In the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future PastOmar Sy plays Bishop - the son of Aborigine mutant refugees, whose powers include energy absorption and redirection, as well as superhuman physical attributes, and the ability to instinctively know his present location.

How much screen time, and how involved the character will be in the overall narrative is unknown at this time. I'd be surprised (but also pleased) if it's a role with any real weight, even though the character is an interesting one, with intriguing origins, and capabilities to be explored on screen.

The much-anticipated film opens on May 232014, with old favorites like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellenHugh JackmanHalle BerryAnna PaquinEllen Page and others returning to mix things up with those who came after them, in Michael FassbenderJames McAvoyJennifer LawrenceNicholas Hoult, and more.


I certainly don't envy director Bryan Singer one bit, having to balance all these actors, and their individual character storylines in one single movie. 

X-Men: Days Of Future Past - the mish-mash of the original X-Men from the first trilogy of films, and younger versions of themselves from X-Men: First Class - sees the ensemble fight a war for the survival of the species across two time periods, in an epic battle that must change the past - to save our future.

A new mini character profile for Monsieur Sy's Bishop, has surfaced, featuring some of his team, including Halle Berry as Storm, lending him an electrical charge:
