Behold the massive cast of the 2014 film "X-Men: Days of Future Past." The movie is based on a classic "X-Men'"storyline from the comic books. Because of the time travel element, it gathers characters from all of the previous "X-Men" movies. Here's a look at the characters in their comic and film incarnations. (Some will reprise their roles in 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse.") Marvel/20th Century Fox
The X-Men's leader, Professor Charles Xavier, has been played by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy (his younger self). For the first time, the two Professors X come face to face. Marvel/20th Century Fox
