Fox has just announced a deal with Josh Boone, the director of The Fault in Our Stars to direct a spin-off to their X-Men franchise called The New Mutants. Following a group of young teenaged mutants learning to master their powers, The New Mutants should be right of Boone's alley.
Bryan Singer took to Instagram this morning to give us the first look at the new Nightcrawler. Actor Kodi Smit-McPhee is taking on the role in the upcoming X-Men: Age of Apocalypse. The popular X-Men teleporter was last played by Alan Cumming in 2003's X2.
Smit-McPhee's younger version will join other teenaged X-Men as they take on iconic villain Apocalypse in the 1980's. Check out a clip of Nightcrawler's trademark 'BAMF'.
Empire Online confirmed through X-Men director Bryan Singer that flying fan-favorite, Angel will be appearing in next years X-Men: Apocalypse. He also confirmed that the winged mutant will be played by Ben Hardy.
Fans beware, Singer also let us know, "he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…" Based on that art, we think we might be lookin at Archangel, Apocalypse's right hand.
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.
Though that does mean we'll have 4/5 of the original X-Men team.
