It seems the people behind X-Men: Apocalypse really wanted young British actor Ben Hardy in the movie. He was in contention to play Cyclops (which went to Tye Sheridan), and the Eastenders actor was also considered to play Angel, but he didn’t get that either.
However now it’s been revealed that he will be in the movie after all, although it’s not clear which character he will play. The role is described as being a key Marvel character, so let the speculation as to who it will be begin.
He joins the likes of Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in the movie, who will be going up against Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, an ancient mutant with extraordinary powers that dwarf those of most others. It will be set in the 1980s.
