Director Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to reveal that X-Men: First Class and “Days of Future Past” star Lucas Till is set to return as Havoc for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. An interesting point to note is that Till will share the screen with Tye Sheridan, who plays the young Cyclops in the film, marking the first time the two brother characters have appeared in the same film in the franchise’s history. Given the age difference in the two, however, it’s possible they may not be related as they are in the source material.
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult will lead the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, which will also see the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Evan Peters as Quicksilver and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner Jean Grey, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Olivia Munn as Psylocke. Oscar Isaac is also starring as the film’s title antagonist with Simon Kinberg scripting 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, X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
