X-Men X-MEN: Meet The New Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey! written by Sean Gerber January 22, 2015 Director Bryan Singer has just announced the casting of the new, younger versions of key mutants in next year’s X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Alexandra Shipp (AALIYAH: THE PRINCESS OF R&B) will play Storm, Tye Sheridan (MUD) will play Cyclops, and Sophie Turner (GAME OF THRONES) will take on the role of Jean Grey. Singer made the announcement on Twitter. Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: @Alexshipppp as #Storm @SophieT as #JeanGrey and @TyeSheridan as #Cyclops. #XmenApocalypse — Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) January 23, 2015 Many young actors have been rumored for these roles over the past several weeks, including the three whom were ultimately chosen. Based on how events unfolded in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, it was clear that focusing on the early years of the team most moviegoers are familiar with was a strong possibility in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Marvel’s comic books have benefited greatly from the use of the young X-Men, and this film should follow suit. 20th Century Fox will release X-MEN: APOCALYPSE on May 27, 2016.

July 18, 2013 Adrian Edmondson First off love the new format , also I like these choices Robert Reineke Tye Sheridan is an excellent young actor. Hard to complain. Kerry Vanderberg I can’t really remember Tye Sheridan, as I only saw the first half of MUD and didn’t really get into it (it just felt really boring to me). But he’s probably pretty good. I’m most excited about Sophie Turner, as she’s started showing a lot more range as her character has gotten more nuanced on GOT. She totally looks like a young Famke Janssen to me. Don’t know about the other actress, but overall I really trust Bryan Singer’s casting sensibilities at this point. I’m very stoked!
