It’s been an up-and-down year for Fox’s X-Men franchise so far. Deadpool got 2016 off to a strong start with its record-breaking run, while X-Men: Apocalypse has proven to be a disappointment both critically and commercially.

Professor X.) Along with the announcement comes the first photo of Stevens in character, which you can see below. Read More »
