Alright nerds a bit of late evening news for you all coming straight from the … thumbs? or thumb and index finger depending on what Bryan Singer uses to actually tweet out stuff and– back to the point!

First up is talented Singer/Songwriter and Actress, Alexandra Shipp who will be portraying the Goddess of Thunder herself, Storm.
Joining in as Jean Grey is Sansa St– err Sophie Turner, who is a personal favorite of mine. I must admit I was giddy the minute she was announced and I am certain she will definitely bring some lady badassness to the mix. Step aside J-Law, she’s here to be just as awkward and adorably badass like you!
And last but not least is Tye Sheridan from the Tree of Life, or more recently the 2014 Nicolas Cage film, Joe. Sheridan will be playing Scott Summers, the X-Men’s hard headed point man.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a scheduled release date of May 27, 2016 and will introduce one of the heavier players in the X-Men universe, which could in turn pave the way to introduce other characters like Cable or X-Factor.
