Just moments ago via twitter, director Bryan Singer has announced the three actors taking on the roles of the iconic mutants Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm.
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner will be Jean Grey. Joe and Mud actor Tye Sheridan will take on Cyclops and star of the much maligned Aaliyah biopic Alexandra Shipp will be Storm. They will be joining Oscar Isaacs as Apocalypse.
In sadder news, it seems that neither Ian McKellen nor Patrick Stewart will be reprising their roles of Magneto or Professor X respectively.
I am sure there will be more announcements to come but while we wait, let us know in the comments what you think of the casting!
