Well we already know that X-Men Apocalypse will see a new, younger take on the characters we’ve already met – and it seems that two of the fan favourites – Cyclops and Jean Grey – are nearly cast. Possibly.
According to The Wrap Hit-Girl herself Chloe Moretz, Super 8 star Elle Fanning and Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld are in the running to play the teen psychic Jean Grey while Eastenders actorsBen Hardy, the Golden Compass’ Charlie Rowe and Interstellar’s Timothee Chalamet are in the running to play X-Men leader Scott Summers.
The idea seems to be that Bryan singer wants a known actress as Jean while he’s happy to cast a newbie as Cyclops.
However, “Sources caution that official test offers for the role of Jean Grey have not been made yet and not only are other up-and-comers still in the mix, but it’s unclear whether Fanning is even pursuing the high-profile role at this time.”
We like the idea of Moretz or Fanning in the role as both are already fine, established actresses… but what do you guys think?
X-Men: Apocalypse is due for release on May 27th, 2016.
