The roster just keeps expanding for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the director has added yet another mutant to the fold.

Meet Adan Canto, who will reportedly be playing the Brazilian mutant Sunspot, aka Roberto Costa. Sunspot was created in the 1980s, and has the ability to absorb solar energy that can be used in energy blasts.

If Canto looks familiar, he’s popped up recently in the U.S. on the hit Fox series The Following, though he’s a relative unknown outside of his native Mexico.

Word broke a while back that Canto had joined the X-Men sequel, but there was no word on who he might be playing. But the actor slipped up and responded to a fan on Twitter who had said they were looking forward to him playing Sunspot with this reply: “Thanks! Next summer.”

He deleted the post soon after, but the damage was done.

So are you glad to hear that Singer will be adding yet another mutant to the big-screen movie-verse, or do you worry this film might be growing a bit too large?
