Yesterday, Latin Review revealed that there are many new names who are testing for the roles of Story, Jean Grey and Cyclops in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.
In the film, it takes place in the 80’s which makes it possible for the older characters to interact with the younger generation. Simon Kinsberg, the film’s producer, confirmed back in September that these character would return but as younger versions of themselves and be played by new actors.
Currently, actors testing for Storm are Alexandra Shipp and Zendaya Coleman. Potential people to play Cyclops are Taaron Egerton, Jamie Blackley and Tye Sheridan, with Sophie Turner and Saoirse Ronan to play Jean Grey.
The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider tweeted that apparently Tye Sheridan is the favorite to play Cyclops and that Chloe Moretz was offered the role of Jean Grey but passed.
