Younger Jean Grey, Storm, And Cyclops Have Been Casted

The younger versions of Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops have been cast in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Director Bryan Singer announced on Twitter that Alexandra Shipp will play Storm, Sophie Turner will take on Jean, and Tye Sheridan will star as Cyclops.

"Meet our new and brilliant young mutants" the director tweeted.

18-year-old Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in HBO's Game of Thrones, is the most recognizable name in the bunch, although many may recall 18-year-old Sheridan from his roles in the 2012 coming-of-age drama Mud and Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life. 24-year-old Shipp is a relative newcomer to the big screen, and is perhaps best known as KT Rush in the Nickelodeon mystery show House of Anubis.

The trio will be taking the torches from the older versions of their characters in the original X-Men trilogy (and last year's brilliant time-bender Days of Future Past), Halle Berry, Famke Janssen and James Marsden.

All three young actors were rumored to be under consideration for the roles earlier this month. They will join X-Men regulars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy, as well as Episode VII's Oscar Isaac, in the 2016 film.

Shooting starts on X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal this April for a May 27, 2016, release.
