Remember Lucas Till, the guy who was featured in Taylor Swift‘s music video for “You Belong With Me”? He was the same guy who starred in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: First Class” as Havok, a mutant who has the ability to generate powerful “plasma blasts”.
Although Till had a brief appearance in 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past“, Singer took to Instagram to confirm that the American actor will return to reprise his role in the next instalment of the “X-Men” film series, “X-Men: Apocalypse“.
Born in 1990, Till began acting at a very young age. He appeared in multiple TV series and earned his first major film role in a biographical movie called “Walk the Line”. He later became more prominent through his mutant role in the “X-Men” film franchise.
“Mud” star Tye Sheridan will be playing his onscreen brother Cyclops/Scott Summers, a mutant who can project powerful beams of energy from his eyes. However, it is unclear whether the Summers brothers will be introduced together.
Till won’t be the only cast member to return to the franchise as James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne will also reprise their respective roles in “X-Men: Apocalypse” too.
Newcomer Lana Condor joined the cast as Jubilee while Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, and Kodi Smit-McPhee will play the younger versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, and Nightcrawler respectively. Ben Hardy was recently confirmed to be playing Angel and Evan Peters may show up as Quicksilver again.
The movie is slated for release on 27th May 2016 and it will be based on a screenplay written by Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty, and Dan Harris.
