As was speculated the last time he revealed concept art for X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer has revealed to Empire that actor Ben Hardy is indeed playing Angel in the upcoming film.

“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…”

In addition, two more pieces of concept art have debuted online showing the character with his wings extended and hidden. Check them out below!

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne will reprise their roles along with Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan Kodi Smit-McPhee and Lana Condor as young versions of Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, and Jubilee. Evan Peters is also expected to make a return appearance as Quicksilver with Oscar Isaac making his debut as the title villain, Apocalypse. The film is being written by Simon Kinberg from a treatment by Mike Dougherty, Dan Harris and Kinberg.

Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, cameras will start rolling on the next adventure in Montreal beginning in April. Once again under the direction of Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
