The director of X-Men Apocalypse, Bryan Singer, announced new members of the cast last night.
Among new contenders are the younger versions of characters Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops- roles previously held by Halle Berry, Famke Janssen and James Marsden.
The new movie will be set in a timeline years prior to the original X-Men movies of the 2000’s.
Bryan Singer tweeted: “Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: @Alexshipppp as #Storm @SophieT as #JeanGrey and @TyeSheridan as #Cyclops. #XmenApocalypse”
Sophie Tuner is better known as Sansa Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Sheridan will play her love interest known for films Mud and Tree of Life.
Last November, Oscar Isaac was announced to play the titular role of the villain Apocalypse. These new characters will join revered cast members including Jennifer Lawrence, Micheal Fassbender, James McAvoy and Evan Peters.
An appearance from Hugh Jackman is expected. It is yet unclear whether Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will make a cameo in the film.
The movie is set to release on May 27th, 2016.
