X-Men: Apocalypse! Meet the new (old) mutants!

The casting is out. After some time of speculation over who was going to play Jean, Storm and Cyclops in the new X-Men: Apocalypse, that will be set up in the 80’s, director Bryan Singer took twitter to announce the results.

So, here we have it. Sophie Turner (a.k.a. Sansa from GoT) will be playing the fierce and powerful Jean Grey. I can see it, I think Sophie is amazing – playing Sansa and dealing with all the s**t from people all of these years must have prepared her for this. And besides, I can see a little (very faint but there) of Famke Janssen in there.

Alexandra Shipp will take the role of Ororo Munroe or Storm, filling in the shoes that once belonged (and technically in the future still do) to Halle Berry. No objections about this, I am not familiar with her work.

Finally Tye Sheridan will be young Scott Summers or Cyclops. Again, I do not know his work and can only guess that he’s extraordinary. That said, he looks nothing like James Marsden, and although of similar age to Sophie, he looks younger than her. I do hope that it somehow works in terms of chemistry between the two actors.

    Love Sophie, but I haven’t really heard of the others either and you are right, Sheridan does look younger than her. Sometimes the pictures betray us though and in the movie he’ll look very different. This seems interesting, but I wish that there wouldn’t be so much in the past hahaha (although I’ll never complain about seeing James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in anything)
