X-Men trilogy star Shawn Ashmore has spoken out about Bryan Singer's return to the film franchise with X-Men: First Class.
Ashmore, who played Iceman in the first three films - the first two of which were directed by Singer - admitted that it is unlikely he will ever get to reprise the role but has not given up hope.
He told Movieline: "Those films are always a blast to make, and working with Bryan is amazing. It’d be awesome to do another X-Men film and it’s too bad that there probably won’t be a role for me, but who knows?
"The universe is huge and they keep making those films. You never know - hopefully, I’ll get the chance to play Iceman one more time."
Ashmore added that fans should be confident about Singer's take on the early days of the X-Men.
He said: "Bryan is clearly very, very passionate about the X-Men films and the characters, so you know he’s going to a good job with whatever the story’s going to be."
X-Men: First Class is currently in pre-production.
