    You’re favorite super heroes are back, with a vengeance.

    X-Men Days Of Future Past is a time traveling tale in which Professor Xavier and his team of super heroes devise a plan to travel back to 1973 in order to stop the sentient robots whose main goal is to exterminate mutants in 2023.

    We spoke with French actor Omar Sy, who plays Bishop in the film, on what we can expect from the film, his upcoming roles and more. Check it out below.

    On Being Nervous About Working With Stars Like Hugh Jackman And Halle Berry 

    I was very nervous. It is a big film with a lot of characters. But at the end, they were very nice and warm with me. It was very good to work with them.

    On The Most Challenging Part About Playing Bishop

    The most difficult acting part for me was to play with something that wasn’t there. It was the most challenging part because it was the first time.

    On His Most Memorable Off Camera Experience

    We had a lot. So, its difficult to pick only one. I would say, all of the shooting was good memories for me.

    On Winning An Academy Award In The Future

    I don’t think about it. I haven’t gotten that far yet.

    On His Initial Reaction To Landing A Role In The New Jurassic Park Film

    On The Most Exciting Part About Shooting Jurassic Park 

    We just starting filming this month in Hawaii so I’m pretty much excited about the entire process.

    On Working With James Franco And Kate Hudson In The Upcoming Film ‘Good People’

    It was cool. It was great. I never stop learning. You’re surrounded by all of these talented actors so it was a good learning experience for me.

    On His Role In ‘Good People

    I play a bad guy for the first time in my life, a drug dealer! I’m so excited to show it. I’m waiting for the audience’s reaction to it.

    On What Made Him Decide To Play A Bad Guy

    It was the first time I would play a bad guy. I wanted a change. I wanted to try something else. After Intouchables, I had a lot of propositions and I wanted to pick up new things. I want to build my catalog.

    On Where He Sees Himself In 5 Years

    Where? I don’t know. I don’t do that because life is so surprising. See, I’m here with you today, I just came from France. 2 years ago I didn’t know any English. Now I’m here with the X-Men poster behind me. So, you can’t expect things about life. Just be ready to enjoy what’s happening.

    X-Men Days Of Future Past hits theaters this Friday.
