Bryan Singer tweeted last night the new cast members in X-Men: Apocalypse. Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Tye Sheridan (Mud), and Alexandra Shipp (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B), will join the James McAvoy led X-Men team in the 1980's as young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm.

Taking over for Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Halle Berry, these three youngsters will join the team to take on the iconic villain Apocalypse. With Nicholas Hoult returning as Beast, this is the closest we'll ever get to the original line-up.

In an interview with Vulture, actor James Marsden confirmed he wouldn't be reprising his role as cyclops in Days of Future Past, but expressed a hope to revisit the character in the future. He also shares that he thinks Joss Whedon could do a Kitty Pryde film.

Are you sad Cyclops isn't coming back? Do you think Joss Whedon should become the Marvel movie guy (outside of obvious Fox/Disney conflicts) and make ALL the Marvel comic films, or should he just stick to the Avengers?
