X:Men Apocalypse will be starting production this Spring and so getting the cast locked down is a huge priority for director Bryan Singer and it seems then next lot of characters he needs to cast are a young Jean Grey and Cyclops. A couple of really great names have been thrown into the mix, including Kick Ass star Chloe Moretz, but with no official word yet, it’s still up for speculation.
For the part of a young Cyclops, Tye Sheridan (Mud), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Jamie Blackley (If I Stay) have been rumoured to be in talks, with the talented Sheridan making quite the impression with his performances in such films as The Tree of Life.
For the role of a young Jean Grey, actresses such as Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones), Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) and Zendaya Coleman (Shake It Up) are said to be in the mix.
With Latino Review mentioning some big names in with young talent within the report, its easy to see how this is going to be difficult for Singer and co to get right. Personally, Sophie Turner continues to impress in her role as Sansa Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones and I could definitely see her as a young Jean Grey! What do you lot think?
