After making a surprise announcement that newcomer Lana Condor will join the cast as Jubilee, Singer teased the return of a famed character through a new production art on his Instagram account.
Does it looks awfully familiar to you? If you’ve seen 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand”, then yes, the mutant featured bears a striking resemblance to Warren Worthington III aka Angel, which was previously portrayed Ben Foster.
Singer did not reveal any details about the character featured in the production art, but it left us wondering what could be happening to him in the film. We do know that in the comic book version of “Apocalypse”, Angel transformed into a dangerous henchman called Death/Archangel after his failed attempt to get his powers removed by the titular character.
Rumour has it that “EastEnders” star Ben Hardy could be portraying the winged mutant as he joined the film for a mysterious key role. He was previously shortlisted to play a young Cyclops, but the role ultimately went to Tye Sheridan.
Set in the 1980s, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, and Rose Byrne will reprise their respective roles in “X-Men: Apocalypse”. Oscar Isaac joined the cast to play the titular villain Apocalypse while Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, and Kodi Smit-McPhee will play the younger versions of Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler.
Singer will direct “X-Men: Apocalypse” based on a screenplay written by Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty, and Dan Harris. The movie will begin filming in Montreal this April before its release on 27th May 2016.
