10 X-Men Characters The Movies Totally Wasted

10 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The long-running X-Men series has remained one of the most consistently popular franchises in Hollywood and after fifteen years of movies including sequels, prequels, reboots and spin-offs the merry band of mutants show no signs of slowing down; last year’s Days of Future past marked both a critical and commercial high point for the franchise with almost $750m at the box office and a current Rotten Tomatoes rating of 91%.

However, as you would expect from a franchise that spans seven movies, features dozens of characters and includes a hugely convoluted timeline that spans decades; there are a number of mutants that have been short-changed on the big screen. While Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine quickly became one of popular culture’s biggest icons and Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender have done great work as Professor Xavier and Magneto respectively, not every character is »

Luke Evans confirms departure from The Crow reboot

24 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Luke Evans has confirmed that he has exited The Crow's planned reboot.

The Dracula Untold actor's representative has announced that he recently chose to bow out of the Corin Hardy-directed project, reports TheWrap.

Evans had made comments hinting at his departure from The Crow late last year, although his exact status was not confirmed until Saturday (January 24).

He joined Relativity Media's long-gestating reboot of the 1994 action movie back in 2013, when Francisco Javier Gutiérrez was scheduled to direct.

Gutiérrez exited the project last summer, leading the studio to hire The Hallow filmmaker Hardy.

Relativity Media first announced its intentions to reboot The Crow more than five years ago.

Other actors linked to the project in the past include Alexander Skarsgård, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, James McAvoy and Tom Hiddleston.

24 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Bryan Singer announced who would play the younger versions of Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse., with Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) and Tye Sheridan signing on to the 2016 film.

Now James Marsden has shared his thoughts on Tye Sheridan playing Cyclops – the role he portrayed in the original X-Men films as well as a brief cameo in X-Men: Days of Future Past – telling HitFix “I think he’s a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in Mud, I’ve never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. So, I think he’s a perfect fit and I congratulate him.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release May 19th, 2016 with James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver) all returning from X-Men: Days of Future Past »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casts New Actors for Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm

23 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Late last week, Patrick Stewart appeared on Larry King's TV show and stated plainly that he and Ian McKellen would not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse because the movie "is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance." This isn't terribly surprising, since the younger incarnations of their characters, as played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively, were much more the stars of  X-Men: Days of Future Past. And we already heard that a couple of other characters would return, recast with younger actors since the movie predominantly takes places in the 1980s. For the younger Jean Grey, previously played by Famke Janssen, Chloe Moretz, Hailee...

Sophie Turner Cast as Jean Grey in X-Men Apocalypse

When fandoms collide! Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner will be joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer confirmed on Twitter on Thursday. While Sansa Stark is definitely a strong character in her own right, we wouldn't mind watching Turner, 18, suit up and unleash some mind-control powers on her enemies. Also announced was the casting of Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops. Shipp, 23, is best known for her titular role in Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic, and Sheridan, 18, is best known for his role as Steve in the Oscar-nominated 2011 film Tree of Life.

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner is officially X-Men's Jean Grey

23 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sansa Stark – or rather actress Sophie Turner – has been cast as Jean Grey in 2016's Days of Future Past follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last night, director Bryan Singer confirmed on his Twitter account that “Game of Thrones” star will become Famke Janssen’s younger iteration much in the same way Jennifer Lawrence has taken over for Rebecca Romijn, James McAvoy for Patrick Stewart, and so on.

Joining Turner are The Tree of Life and Mud’s Tye Sheridan as young Cyclops/Scott Summers and newcomer Alexandra Shipp as young Storm.

Turner’s Sansa has never been the favourite Stark. “Game of Thrones” fans have gravitated toward her younger sister, Arya, in much greater numbers, but Sansa should not be counted out. Unlike her sister, who lives on the fringes with a tiny sword and a bowl cut, Sansa has started to embrace the political intrigues of Westeros – she’s now “playing »

We knew that would see younger versions of these characters in this film that is set to take place in the 1980s, and it seems like they've cast some solid young talent. They will join James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, and Nicholas Hoult in the film.

We still don't know all of the details about the movie, but we've heard that it will involve ancient mutants and explore a deeper relationship between Magneto and Mystique. Quicksilver »

Sansa Stark Is the Latest Addition to 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

23 January 2015 4:56 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, there are going to be some new mutants on the block when "X-Men: Apocalypse" opens next summer. And by new mutants we mean new version of old mutants (this is getting confusing). Last night on Twitter, "X-Men: Apocalypse" director Bryan Singer announced that Alexandra Shipp will be playing Storm, Sophie Turner will be Jean Grey, and Tye Sheridan will be Cyclops. The movie will open on May 27th, 2016.

All three actors are up-and-coming stars, with Shipp having recently starred in the Lifetime "Aaliyah" movie (and since "X-Men: Apocalypse" is set in the '80s, we hope that she rocks that awesome mohawk), while Sheridan has starred in "The Tree of Life," "Mud," "Joe," and has a role in the upcoming "Scouts vs. Zombies." Turner, of course, stars as Sansa Stark on "Game of Thrones" and has a number of buzz-worthy projects opening in the next year, including the action thriller "Barely Lethal, »

Sansa Stark to Play Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse

22 January 2015 10:57 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Bryan Singer unveiled three more actors-cum-mutants appearing in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film: Alexandra Shipp (a.k.a. Lifetime's Aaliyah), Sophie Turner (a.k.a. HBO's Sansa Stark), and Tye Sheridan (a.k.a. that kid from Mud). Shipp will play Storm; Turner, Jean Grey; and Sheridan, Cyclops. If they look more like Teen Titan cast members to you that's because this is going to be a weird, semi-retro 1980s-set installment, of which a majority of the plot details are still unknown. The three relatively young players join Oscar Isaac (the eponymous villain), Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender on the Singer-helmed project, which comes out May 27, 2016. Yeah, you've got a while, so maybe just watch the Ultron trailers on repeat to get your comic-book-movie fix. »

Official: Meet the New X-men: Apocalypse Cast Members For 'Storm', 'Jean Grey' And Cyclops'

22 January 2015 5:15 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For the past few months, several names have been thrown in the mix for the roles of Ororo Munroe aka Storm, Jean Grey, and Scott Summers aka Cyclops, as the younger iterations of the mutants will be appearing in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. While those shortlists have shortened this past month, the director has just taken to his Twitter account to announce that actors Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean), and Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) have officially joined the ensemble cast. Shipp is probably best known for portraying the late songstress Aaliyah in a Lifetime biopic, while English actress Sophie Turner is known for her role on HBO's Game of Thrones, and the relatively unkown Tye Sheridan has been praised for his role in 2012's Mud. Anyhow, the trio join a mutant roster made up of Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar Isaac, while X-Men: Apocalypse »
