We kind of knew this was coming, but it looks like we now have confirmation that the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse will introduce young versions of even more mutants from the original X-Men series. Matthew Vaughn’s 2011 film X-Men: First Class successfully rebooted the franchise with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence playing 1970s versions of Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively, and then Bryan Singer’s time-twisting follow-up Days of Future Past brought both casts together in a compelling and fun sequel. However, Apocalypse moves away from the time travel aspect of DOFP and into the 1980s, so with Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, etc. back out of the picture, Singer and Co. are looking to fill in the gaps with younger versions of some more mutants.
Which mutants, you may ask? Well a new report unveils a list of actors that are being eyed to play a young Jean Grey and a young Cyclops. More after the jump.
