CBMB: Fox Reportedly Testing New X-Men for Apocalypse

By Muuka Muyumba

Latino-Review and El Mayimbe brought some late week heat with a report that Fox is testing several young actors for the roles of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.

The three original recruits will reportedly be part of X-Men: Apocalypse as the X-Men as reconstituted after Days of Future Past in the early ’80s, will do battle with the biggest and baddest mutant of all, Apocalypse who will be played by Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Reports came out shortly after the announcement of the project, naming just about every young actor “fitting the description” as testing. El Mayimbe reports that contenders for the role young Scott Summer, aka Cyclops, are now Taron Edgerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jamie Blackley (If I Stay), and Tye Sheridan (Mud).

They can’t have Scott without Jean, so Marvel Girl will obviously be part of Apocalypse. Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) are reportedly in talks for the crucial role of the future Dark Phoenix.


Finally, El Mayimbe has pegged Alexandra Shipp (Straight Outta Compton), and Zendaya Coleman (Shake It Up) as Ororo Munroe, aka Storm.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to start filming in April for a May 27, 2016 release.
