2016 will see 3 X-Men movies, the biggest no doubt being X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. We know that Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult will be returning as Mystique, Magneto, Xavier, and Beast respectively, while adding Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse. The movie will take place in the 80’s and we were expecting to see the original 3 X-Men appear, and now they’ve been cast.
Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm will make appearances as younger versions of what we’ve seen on film so far. Bryan Singer has confirmed via twitter that actors Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean), and Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) have joined the cast. Many will recognized Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones as Sansa Stark, with Alexandra Shipp playing Aaliyah in the biopic about the singer’s life. Sheridan is known for the film Mud.
While we don’t know what part they will play in the film, it seems they’re being setup to possibly play the X-Men in films beyond Apocalypse, which ends the trilogy for the original cast. We should also expect to see Evan Peters return as Quicksilver as well.
Do you think they cast right for the film? My doubts linger, but perhaps we shall see as production begins this year.
