New X-Men in “X-Men: Apocalypse?” Who Will Young Storm, Cyclops, & Jean Grey Be?

Hollywood is probably one of the most ruthless places on Earth. So it is no surprise that roles in popular movies can be almost cut throat! Well now roles are open for three of Marvel’s “merry mutant superheroes” for the third and final installment of The X-Men First Class trilogy, X-Men: Apocalypse! This film will follow the new history created by Wolverine in X-Men Days of Future Past, showcasing teen versions of Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey in the early eighties facing against the villainous Apocalypse, an immortal mutant who takes Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” to a whole new level.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
