According to Variety, actor Ben Hardy has been cast in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie, directed by Bryan Singer.
At this point we don’t have any details on the character Hardy will play, except that it is “significant” to the X-Men universe.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the characters from the Age of Apocalypse storyline:
- Legion (son of Professor X)
- Dead Man Wade
- Shadow King
- Strong Guy
- Lila Cheney
- Wild Child
- Jean Grey
- Nate Grey
Yes, he could be anyone, but if I had to put my money on the character, I’m going to with either Nate Grey, the son of Jean Grey and Cyclops, or Legion, the character that kicks this whole mess into high gear.
X-Men: Age of Apocalypse arrives in theaters on May 27, 2016.
