Bryan Singer is preparing to shoot the next X-Men movie, X-Men Apocalypse, which takes place after Days of Future Past. That means the younger First Class cast will be around, but a new generation of X-Men — the generation which is already grown in the original series of films — has to come on board. Specifically, that means the characters Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm, played by Famke Janssen, James Marsden and Halle Berry in the previous movies.
We’d heard rumblings of some major actresses being up for the Jean Grey role but they’ve all moved on. Now there’s a new crop of actors not only up for Jean Grey, but Cyclops and Storm as well. Find out who might join the X-Men Apocalypse cast below. Read More »

Bryan Singer once again has the unenviable task of casting two of Marvel’s most iconic X-Men. Back in 2000, the director brought in Famke Janssen and James Marsden to play Jean Grey and Cyclops, rolls that extended through and including this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now that the series is continuing on with the X-Men: First Class versions of the characters in X-Men Apocalypse, he has to cast those two crucial roles again.
One report says three actors and three actresses are on Singer’s short list for each role. Among them? Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Read more about the X-Men Apocalypse Cyclops and Jean Grey casting below. Read More »
X-Men: Days of Future Past cleaned up the X-Men movie timeline (by erasing most of it) and set up some power dynamics that will be further explored in the next film, X-Men: Apocalypse, due in 2016.

A Magneto and Mystique romance has been floated in the past, but now it sounds like Apocalypse will see the mentor relationship between Magneto and Mystique blossom into a full-blown red-on-blue romance.

Even people who didn’t like X-Men: Days of Future Past love the Quicksilver scene. As Charles, Logan and Hank sneak into the Pentagon to break out Erik, they employ the talents of a young speedy mutant named Quicksilver. He steals the movie with an incredible slow motion scene where he runs around a kitchen, under active sprinklers, completely changing the situation in order to help our heroes. You can watch a behind the scenes video about it here.
As pre-production continues on that film’s sequel, Bryan Singer‘s X-Men Apocalypse, its been revealed that the character, played by Evan Peters, will return. That’s not really that surprising. What is a bit surprising is the something second unit director on the film says about dreaming of a Quicksilver solo movie. Read more about Quicksilver X-Men Apocalypse below. Read More »
