According to Cinema Blend on Jan. 7, Evan Jonigkeit discovered he'd be playing Magneto's henchman, Toad, in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past". At this point, the 1973 timeline in Singer's film will exist to contain the younger versions of their characters from "X-Men: First Class" and now it seems the origin of Toad's story may become apparent. In previous "X-Men" films, the character was played by "Star Wars" actor Ray Park.

The Toad character is known to be rather nimble and can leap great distances. He even can spit an adhesive "goo" of sorts and almost suffocated Jean Grey in one of the films. Luckily, she was rescued by Cyclops.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" was screen written by Simon Kinberg and the story line is by Matthew Vaughn. The plot will take place in an apocalyptic era where mutants are hunted down by robots known as sentinels. This piece of technology was designed by Trask Industries and programmed to annihilate existing mutants from the planet.

Find out the origins of some of the X-Men in Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which will be released in theaters on May 23.
