Bryan Singer took to Twitter only a few hours ago to let fans know that young Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm have been casted.
Sophie Turner who is best known for her role of Sansa Stark on the Game of Thrones will be playing Jean Grey.
Tye Sheridan will be playing Cyclops, he is has played in numerous movies, such as Mud and The Tree of Life.
Alexandra Shipp will be playing Storm, she is best known for playing Aaliyah.
Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) has been cast as the titular villain for the next installment of Fox’s X-Men movie franchise.
No word on how the actor will portray him, yet. That is, whether he’lll appear human, be under heavy make-up, or pretty much just be a CG creation a la Josh Brolin’s Thanos. “X-Men: Apocalypse” is almost certainly going to revolve around the villain of the same name, and many have been left to speculate that the movie will be heavily based on the 1995 comics storyline “Age of Apocalypse,” wherein the villain is the ruler of a world where mutants have risen up to overthrow and enslave humans.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” hits theatres on May 18th, 2016, and will pick up some time in the 1980s,
And by young, we mean young.
According to reports, Bryan Singer is faced with recasting two of the most iconic X-Men for their roles in the Apocalypse inspired next installment of the (basically-rebooted) X-Men franchise.
With Age of Apocalypse up next for the X-Men movies and talks of recasting some of the roles with younger versions. The ladies of TFP wanted to give our votes for who should be casted in this roles.
She is from Africa, specifically Kenya which is where Storm is from, she already has the accent. I can see her with white hair and blue contacts. I think she could pull off the punk look or her first appearance look. Lupita has that regal nature to her as evident by her Oscar speech. She proved to have incredible acting talent in 12 Years a Slave, she has already acted with Magneto. Let us just hope she does not suffer from the Oscar does not make you a good superhero curse many of the females suffer from like Hallie Berry.
Bryce Dallas Howard
She would be a great Jean Grey, one she is a natural red head. She also has some great acting roles, she was the wife in Terminator Salvation so she proved that she can handle a bit of action. Howard was the bitchy girl in The Help, which proves she play the stuck up element of Jean Grey. Just look at that picture you could just see her as the cheerleader girl next door which is so Jean. Next to (insert name) as Scott they would just look perfect, like the perfect couple, just as Jean and Scott should.
We could not agree on anyone to be Scott because out of the younger actors no one really stands out. James Marsden was such a perfect Scott it is hard to find anyone to top him, with some make-up to make him look younger they could just bring him back. If you have any suggestions for Scott Summers please let us know.
