Although X-Men: First Class pulled its title from the comic of the same name, the film didn’t really have the X-Men’s first class. The first five mutants in the X-Men comics were Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Angel, and Iceman. Now it looks like X-Men: Apocalypse will have four out of five, which ain’t bad. Director Bryan Singer has released a new X-Men: Apocalypse image showing some production art of Angel, a mutant who can fly on feathered wings: [caption id="attachment_435289" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Bryan Singer[/caption] We previously reported that Tye Sheridan is playing Cyclops and Sophie Turner is Jean Grey. Nicholas Hoult is returning to play Beast, and Iceman isn’t part of the team because the movie takes place in the 1980s. In February, Ben Hardy (EastEnders) was cast in a “key, as-yet-undisclosed” role, and presumably, he’s playing Angel, although that’s still unconfirmed. So what’s happening to dear Angel, »

With shooting scheduled to begin next month in Montreal on X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer took to his Instagram page to reveal a new piece of production artwork, which confirms that the mutant Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel, will be featured in the sequel. The image appears to show Angel locked in a cage at some sort of a circus, but it isn't known how this image will fit into the story line. It's worth noting that we haven't heard who is playing Angel yet, but we reported last month that actor Ben Hardy has signed on to play an important yet undisclosed character from the Marvel comics, so it's possible that he could be playing Angel.
The cast of this comic book adaptation includes Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Alexandra Shipp (young Storm), Sophie Turner (young Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (young Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (young Nightcrawler), along with »
Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to post some production art from X-Men: Apocalypse, which confirms that the character of Angel is set to feature in the 1980s-set follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
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, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as »

Bryan Singer has mastered the art of teasing fans on social media when it comes to production on X-Men: Apocalypse and he's at it again, posting the above image on his Instagram account more-or-less confirming the character Angel will be seen in the new movie. As you'll all remember, Ben Foster played Angel in the lackluster X-Men: The Last Stand, but the X-verse timeline has since been altered so that Angel is most likely not this Angel and I wouldn't expect Foster to return to play the character either, unless Singer is still holding back surprises. Fans of the comics will surely speculate what this image of Angel trapped in a cage means, but over at ComicBookMovie.com they write:"Could that be an early Mr. Sinister conducting itc Who knows, but in a movie with Apocalypse, Angel not being included would have been a big mistake. Here's hoping we »

It seems like just yesterday, Hugh Jackman was boldly proclaiming that he wants to play Wolverine until he dies. But that sadly may not be the case. In a rather cryptic Instagram that arrived with no other information, Hugh Jackman posted a photo of his claws, stating: 'Wolverine...One Last Time.' What does this mean? Is he done with the character? It's also not clear if he is actually referring to Wolverine 3, which is set to shoot in 2016. He was recently rumored to be cameoing in X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool, but that has never been confirmed.
It's unlikely that X-Men: Apocalypse will be Hugh Jackman's final turn as the indestructible Mutant Logan, as he and director James Mangold have been working on the Wolverine 3 story for quite sometime now. This isn't the first time the actor has declared that he is done with the character, either. He has »
Director Bryan Singer wants his cast in fighting shape for X-Men: Apocalypse. He has hired Canadian Bellator fighter and celebrity trainer Holly Lawson to get a few of his young actors ready for battle. Holly Lawson is offering fans a quick glimpse into her world, with a look at just how grueling this process will be over the next few weeks.
In the photo, we see Alexandra Shipp, who will take on the younger version of Storm, and Sophie Turner, who plays a teenage Jean Grey, as they prepare for their enrollment at Xavier's School for the Gifted. Apparently, both Storm and Jean Grey will be engaged in some close-contact fighting at some point in X-Men: Apocalypse. We don't really get to see what either actress will eventually look like once they climb into their costumes, but the film is taking place in the 80s, so we can expect to »
Bryan Singer’s X-men: Apocalypse, is among the many 2016 Superhero tentpole’s to begin principal photography next month. However, it seems that there are still some last minute casting addition’s being finalised before camera’s begin to role.
Last summer’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, was a fantastic way of revitalising the decade-old franchise, by casually rebooting the series to ensure its long-term future. Although the film promised to act as a swansong to the cast of the first trilogy, it seems that we may not have seen the last of the original X-Men just yet. Last month, Patrick Stewart seemingly revealed the great news that Ian McKellen will be making an appearence in X-men: Apocalypse. Now, a new rumour claims that he will also be joined by Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Halle Berry’s Storm.
While a cameo appearence from Jackman will surprise no one, Berry »

X-Men: Apocalypse has been accumulating a diverse selection of mutants this week. On Tuesday we learned that Wolverine, an adult Storm and Gambit would be making cameo appearances, and the next day it was announced that Lana Condor had been cast as Jubilee. Now Psylocke is the latest female hero that has been added to the 2016 blockbuster.s lineup. Film writer Jeff Sneider said on Meet The Movie Press today that she will be the latest "B-team mutant" that Bryan Singer has added to X-Men: Apocalypse. An actress hasn.t been found yet to play her, but if it.s not leaked by a press outlet beforehand, presumably we can expect Singer to announce the casting on his Instagram account like he did with Condor, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Hardy. Psylocke.s civilian identity Betsy Braddock made her comic book debut in 1976 in the Marvel UK series Captain Britain. It »
Earlier this week, it was announced that newcomer Lana Condor will be taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee, in X-Men: Apocalypse. Now we have word of another Mutant joining the mix. Apparently 20th Century Fox is in the process of casting fan-favorite Psylocke. No actors have been mentioned at this time.
Psylocke, whose real name is Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock, has a storied history in the Marvel comics. She was first introduced in Captain Britain #8 in 1976. 10 years later she took over the role of Captain Britain from her twin brother in 1986's Captain Britain #12. She was first introduced as Psylocke a year later in 1987's Uncanny X-Men #213, and then two years later she became Lady Mandarin in 1989's Uncanny X-Men #256. Hailing from Braddock Manor, England, Psylocke can generate a telekinetic katana, or direct her telekinesis through her fists to strike as if she had superhuman strength; she is »

Yesterday, director Bryan Singer revealed that unknown actress Lana Condor would be playing Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. There is very little information about Condor to be found online, but we do know she's 19, from New York, and is also a model. Pictures of the actress are also scarce, but the ever-awesome Boss Logic has taken the one that accompanied the announcement and worked some of his magic. He's decided against going with the trademark yellow trench-coat but to be fair; this is probably a lot closer to how she'll actually be depicted in the movie anyway. Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) Kodi Smit-Mcphee (Nightcrawler), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). The movie reportedly starts shooting this summer and will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. »

X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be an ’80s period piece, so of course it will include Jubilee, the most ’80s-est mutant. Bryan Singer announced this week that newcomer Lana Condor will play the part of Jubilation Lee, joining Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. There's been no indication whether or not Condor will don Jubilee's famous yellow trench coat, but given that this is a Singer project, its chances of survival are slightly higher than if, say, Zack Snyder were directing. »

Bryan Singer has added a fresh face to the cast of his upcoming blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse. And in what is now his time honoured fashion, he's announced the latest casting via his social media accounts.
In this case, he's taken to Instagram to reveal that relative newcomer Lana Condor has picked up a role in his new X-Men movie. She's going to be taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, better known as Jubilee. She has the power of controlling energy plasmoids, in a manner akin to fireworks. Jubilee appeared in the original X-Men (where Katrina Florence played her), and in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand (where Kea Wong took on the role).
Here's the picture of Lana Condor, that Singer posted.
Newcomer John Maclean has written and directed the darkly comic Western.
Slow West opens in Us cinemas on April 16. No UK release date has been set.
The next X-Men movie has been making headlines lately as Kodi Smit-McPhee joined the cast and newcomer Lana Condor has scored a part. X-Men: Apocalypse's call sheet has been steadily increasing for a while now, and several new stars are set to join, in addition to 2011's First Class and last year's Days of Future Past heroes. It should be noted that Channing Tatum, who will play Gambit in a standalone X-Men film, is rumored to make a cameo, but nothing is confirmed yet. Fingers crossed! Take a look below to see which stars will definitely be featured and check out 12 hot superheroes in upcoming movies! »
With cameras set to begin rolling in April, there's been quite a bit of casting news doing the rounds in the last few weeks for X-Men: Apocalypse, and now director Bryan Singer has announced another addition to his latest foray into the X-Men universe, with newcomer Lana Condor taking on the role of Jubilee. Best known as prominent member of the 90's X-Men cartoon, the mutant, whose power is to create and control energy plasmoids which look like fireworks, has been part of the X-Men universe since her creation in 1989, and has previously appeared in the original X-Men movies, played by Katrina Florence in the first X-Men, and by Kea Wong in X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Jubilee will be rejoining fellow recast mutants Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) for what is said to be the conclusion to the trilogy to X-Men: First Class, »
