Platt will play the non-mutant role of The Man in Black in the film, although more details on the character weren't given. Platt joins a cast that already includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Caleb Landry Jones, Edi Gathegi and Jason Flemyng.
"I think it's in my contract that I actually get killed if I say much. It's going really well and I am very excited. I watched a bunch of pre-viz yesterday and went home feeling so excited. We start shooting in about three weeks. We have an incredible cast and we're all very excited. When I came to visit this set the other day, they're across Pinewood, and there were X-Men people walking around in bathrobes."
