For those of you following X-Men: Apocalypse and its production, you might know that we haven’t heard major casting announcements. That is, until today.
Director Bryan Singer took to Twitter to let everyone know that some new and young faces have been brought into the fold. Alexandra Shipp (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel) will be cast as Storm, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) is playing Jean Gray, and Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, Mud) looks all set to star as Cyclops.
These are all relatively fresh faces, so hopefully Singer has picked the right crew to reveal these three iconic mutants in their younger forms alongside Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, James McAvoy’s Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast.
Stay tuned to our friends over at Cinema Blend for more as the films begins production in the next few months.
