    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.

      Casted is so not a word. I need to get myself a cup of coffee.

      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.

    Who is this Sheridan character? Never seen him before. He looks the youngest of all, too young comparably.
