    Are they casted young? This isn’t Patrick Stewart’s team it’s McAvoy’s right?
    They’ll probably set it in the late 70s or 80s.

    • They have said that this one will take place in the ’80s and further Patrick Stewart said neither he nor Ian McCallan will be in the film. I imagine we will see McAvoy recruiting these new X-Men as part of the film, or they will be relatively new members.
