Bryan Singer announced via Twitter today the actors playing the 3 superheroes. All 3 actors were previously rumored for the roles along with Saoirse Ronan, Zendaya Coleman, Jamie Blackley, and more. Only 1 of the 3 cast was on my fan-casting post but I’m still happy to see at least one person I was rooting for cast! Anyways, here’s the 3 actors:
Tye Sheridan will be playing Cyclops in Apocalypse. Last year, he was in a few episodes of Last Man Standing and was in The Forger with John Travolta. This year you can catch him in The Stanford Prison Experiment and Last Days in the Desert (at Sundance Film Festival).
Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey, an actress I was rooting for the role. She’s probably most known for her role in Game of Thrones as Sansa Stark. This year, you can catch her in Barely Lethal along side Jessica Alba and Samuel L Jackson.
And last, but not least, is Alexandra Shipp playing Storm! Last year, she starred in Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B and Drumline: A New Beat. She’ll be in the movies Occult and Straight Outta Compton later this year.
So what do you think of this casting? Did they make the right choices? Let me know in the poll!
