Here is what we know so far, the next X-Men movie is Apocalypse, it’s going to be set in the 1980’s and that we are going to see some young incarnations of Jean, Scott and Ororo in some capacity – whether they’ll be central to the plot or merely one off appearances is yet to be determined.
A while back it was reported that several actors have been approached to play the trio with Chloe Grace Moretz pipped originally for Jean Grey! Now it seems that Chloe has passed on the role and notable Irish actress Saoirse Ronan (big yes to this, I think she’d be amazing)is being linked to the role but she’s not the only one. Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner is also being talked about as a frontrunner for the part.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for May 2016 release and will once more see Bryan Singer return as director with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence reprising their roles.
Thoughts? Who would you like to see cast as Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm?
