Nightcrawler isn't the only mutant that can teleport, you know ... and he's most definitely not the best-looking.

Fan Bingbing is the latest student to enroll at Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters as she's joined the ever-growing cast of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," according to Deadline.

Bryan Singer actually announced the casting news via his Twitter account, as has been his custom as he preps for his triumphant return to the "X-Men" franchise. Bingbing will be playing the role of Clarice Ferguson, aka Blink, a mysterious, unstable mutant with the ability to zap herself from one place to another without the use of any Seth Brundle-created contraption. The character was first introduced in "Uncanny X-Men" #317 (1994).

Bingbing recently starred in "Double Exposure," which broke a box office record for an art film in China, and "Lost in Thailand." She's currently in negotiations to star in the sequel to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."

More X-Casting: Daniel Cudmore will be reprising his role as Peter Rasputin, aka Colossus, which means we may see him and Wolverine indulge in another one of their trademark Fastball Specials. Cudmore's casting was inadvertently announced when Singer posted a pic of a wall adorned with headshots of the "X-Men" cast. See the Wall of Mutants below!

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" will commence with principal photography this spring with a look toward a release date of July 18, 2014.
