The living McQueen started out as an acclaimed experimental shorts filmmaker before landing critical acclaim with his 2007 directorial debut "Hunger,” a spare, haunting portrait of an Ira fighter on a hunger strike during the late 1970's; he followed that up with another unsettling treatment of male physicality in crisis, the sex addiction drama "Shame.” Both movies starred Michael Fassbender as deeply troubled souls, and "12 Years a Slave” is no exception, though it has much bigger »

25 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that the recent headline-grabbing live episodes of U.K soap opera Eastenders have provided something of a showcase for series regular Ben Hardy, as The Wrap reports that he is now in talks for a significant role in X-Men: Apocalypse. While Hardy has 188 episodes of the soap under his belt, he had apparently screentested for the X-Men role of Cyclops, before being rumoured for the role of Angel. The part he may ultimately play in the movie, however, is described as “key” and “important.”

Another mutant has joined the ranks of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Eastenders Star Joins X-Men: Apocalypse In “Significant” Role

25 February 2015 6:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC / Marvel Comics

Eastenders actor Ben Hardy is swapping Walford for Bryan Singer’s big screen X-Men world.

After missing out on the role of young Scott Summers, Ben Hardy is joining Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse in an unknown role. Variety is reporting that the mystery character is a “significant” one from the Marvel comic book world.

Given Hardy’s appearance, the early speculation is that the role in question could be that of Warren Worthington III. Commonly known by the name of Angel, the character has also had his darker moments alongside the villain Apocalypse, in which he then has the Archangel moniker.

Already confirmed for Singer’s next venture into the X-world are returns for James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira McTaggert, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. New additions include Tye Sheridan as the young Scott Summers/Cyclops, »

Ben Hardy circling X-Men: Apocalypse mystery role

25 February 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to TheWrap, Bryan Singer has found yet another young cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse, in the form of EastEnders actor Ben Hardy.

Unfortunately, we have no idea who Hardy will be playing, as the role is “another important [one] that is being kept under wraps.”

Hardy was one of the actors who tested for the role of Cyclops, which ultimately went to Mud‘s Tye Sheridan. The new report claims that while he was rumored to be playing Angel, “insiders” claim that that’s not the case. Whether or not Angel is actually in the film is, like a lot of things surrounding this project, still a mystery.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, »

Ben Hardy Joins The Cast Of X-men: Apocalypse

24 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tye Sheridan may have landed the part of the younger Scott Summers in X-Men: Apocalypse, but it seems director Bryan Singer was impressed enough with Ben Hardy's audition to cast the young Eastenders actor in another role. Who will be be playing? Well that seems to be a mystery for now, and the only other details we have on the character is that he's "significant to the X-Men universe." The Wrap does also report that he was at one time rumored to be up for Warren Worthington/Angel (so that may at least confirm the winged mutant's appearance in the movie) but that insiders now say it's another "key role" that's being kept under wraps. Whoever Hardy is playing, he joins Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters May 19, 2016. »
