The cast for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse keeps getting bigger and bigger. Rounding out today's news is Ben Hardy, veterancast member of the long running British soap EastEnders getting the role of Warren Worthington III, more famously known as Angel.

Angel joining the cast comes as no shock to fans. He's a pretty integral part of of the Apocalypse storyline, and Bryan Singer released this concept art last week.
