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.
Jean Grey’s list of candidates include, Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning, and Hailee Steinfeld. Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe, and Timothee Chalamet were initially being considered for Cyclops. Now, according to Latino Review, there’s another roster of young talent on the shortlist, and this time it even includes some names for Storm. But, which of these new faces be part of Professor X’s School for Gifted Youngsters?
Awesome choices right? Well in the words of The Hunger Games, “…may the odds be forever in your favor!”
