17 April 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to announce that Lucas Till is set to reprise his role as Alex Summers / Havok in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, with the actor joining an ever growing list of characters in the mutant superhero sequel.

Till made his debut as Havok in 2011’s Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, and also returned for a brief cameo under Bryan Singer last year in X-Men: Days of Future Past. His appearance in Apocalypse means we’ll be seeing Alex and Scott Summers (a.k.a. Cyclops) sharing the big screen for the very first time, with Tye Sheridan (Mud) set to play the younger Summers brother.

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), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) alongside Oscar Isaac »

Charlie Brooks called a f***king dog

Charlie Brooks was once told she looked like a ''f***ing dog''. The former 'EastEnders' star claims a random woman once told her not to be offended but that she looked like her character Janine Butcher, not realising she was the actress who played her on the BBC One soap for over two decades. Asked what the strangest thing anyone's ever said to her is, Charlie shared: ''So, a woman once said to me, 'Don't take offence to this because she is a f***ing dog, but you look a little like that Janine off 'EastEnders''.''

Denise Van Outen on Eastenders: a blonde bombshell taken to the Max

10 April 2015 1:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Denise Van Outen is Walford’s latest peroxide heroine, swaggering onto the Square with lashings of sauce and glamour – but will she escape the allure of Max Branning, and realise her destiny as the new Dirty Den?

EastEnders likes its heroines blonde and brassy, from Peggy Mitchell to Shirley Carter. So with the click-click of high heels, the latest in a long line of women as strong as their peroxide wiggled into Walford in Thursday night’s episode.

Effortlessly played by Denise Van Outen, Karin is a slightly tongue-in-cheek, glamorous businesswoman who dishes out more lingering looks than Roxy Mitchell’s had cocktails. A saucy mare of the highest order.

9 April 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week it was confirmed that former EastEnders star Ben Hardy is set to portray Warren Worthington III in next year’s X-Men sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, and now director Bryan Singer has debuted some official concept art of Hardy as Angel over at Empire…

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Angel Concept Art; Ben Hardy Confirmed

9 April 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, we reported that British actor Ben Hardy (EastEnders) had been cast in an important but unspecified role in X-Men: Apocalypse, which is getting ready to start production this month in Montreal. Then last week, a new report revealed that the actor is actually playing Angel, a character who was featured in concept art posted by director Bryan Singer. Today, the director confirms that Ben Hardy is in fact playing Angel, while briefly teasing that, despite his name, Angel isn't very angelic.

"Ben Hardy is Angel - I shall confirm it for you! But he's not a very nice Angel! And that's all I'll say..."

In the comic books, Angel a.k.a. Warren Worthington III is one of Apocalypse's four Horsemen, after being transformed from Angel into Death, also known as Archangel, who is equipped with wings that are made out of knives. While there is very »

Bryan Singer Confirms Ben Hardy Is Playing Angel In X-Men: Apocalypse, Teases Archangel

9 April 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since EastEnders alum Ben Hardy joined the expansive cast of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, rumors began to swirl that he was playing fan-favorite mutant Angel, one of the founding members of the titular team and an important figure in the Age of Apocalypse comic book storyline. Now, thanks to Singer himself, that rumor has been confirmed (via Empire):

Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”

That sounds like Hardy won’t just be donning Angel’s white wings in the film (as teased by some concept art released last week), but will in fact show up as one of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen: Archangel. The Horsemen are four artificially augmented mutants, given the names Death, Famine, Pestilence and War, who are tasked with doing their master’s bidding. Angel »

First we found out that Ben Hardy scored a “key, as-yet-undisclosed” role in X-Men Apocalypse and the EastEnders actor happens to look a lot like Warren Worthington III, so many instantly assumed he’d be playing Angel. Next, director Bryan Singer shared this production art further suggesting that Hardy is indeed playing the winged mutant. Now it’s confirmed. Singer told Empire that Hardy is playing Angel in the film and also teased what we can expect from the character: “Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…” [caption id="attachment_415960" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via BBC[/caption] On top of that, Empire also shared two pieces of Angel concept art that show the character with a completely different set of wings than the ones Ben Foster rocked in X-Men: The Last Stand. In fact, they look a lot like metal wings, »

Exclusive: Angel Confirmed For X-Men: Apocalypse

9 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's official - Bryan Singer has confirmed exclusively to Empire that Angel will be in X-Men: Apocalypse, and that he'll be played by Ben Hardy.Hardy, a former EastEnders star, was cast a while back, but his character name was withheld. But as the latest X-Men movie gets closer to production in Montreal, speculation has abounded for weeks that he would be playing Angel, a winged mutant who was one of the original X-Men, so Empire got on the phone with Singer and asked him for confirmation.“Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you!” said Singer. “But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”And, as if to back that up, this piece of exclusive concept art shows Angel in two guises – with wings furled and then unfurled. And those wings look less like feathers and more like daggers. Might »

Introducing Tatau: BBC Three's new supernatural drama

9 April 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

New BBC Three supernatural drama Tatau starts this Sunday. We spoke to its stars, Joe Layton and Theo Barklam-Biggs, about what to expect…

As this chat with Tatau’s lead actors, Joe Layton and Theo Barklem-Biggs, took place before the press screening for BBC Three’s new supernatural drama, the pair were given the responsibility of describing the series to me: Unique. Mysterious. Fast-paced. Energy-fuelled. A hurricane. A typhoon. (Before long, they're just listing weather systems.)

“It’s a teen show, accessible for young people” cuts in Barklem-Biggs as his co-star brings up the otherworldly, occult palette of True Detective, “even around all this darkness there will be moments that make you laugh as well. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.”

Layton gets back on message and agrees, “I think it really suits BBC Three.”

That it does, as a youth-oriented story of two twenty-something backpackers, Kyle and Budgie, »
