Bryan Singer’s X-Men Apocalypse has started shooting today and we already have our first look at some of the cast members on the set. Thanks to Twitter user @FrancescaY we have our first looks at Cyclops, Jean Grey, Jubilee and Nightcrawler possibly waiting to go see Return of The Jedi at the mall. Singer and producer Simon Kinberg revealed one of the sets is a movie theatre that is playing Jedi, confirming it’s setting is indeed 1983.
UPDATE #1: A couple more images of Sophie Turner and Lana Condor in costume spotted on set have found their way onto social media.
The costumes are very 80’s inspired and prove that Singer and Fox are indeed embracing a brighter look to the character designs, I’m curious to see what their uniforms look like. Earlier today we got two promo images of Kodi as Nightcrawler, I’m sure after this leak we’ll be seeing more official images soon.
The returning cast includes James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Micheal Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, and Rose Byrne as Agent Moira MacTaggert. Our newcomers include Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandria Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Ben Hardy as Archangel, Olivia Munn as Pyslocke, and Oscar Isaac as the titular villain Apocalypse.
X-Men Apocalypse will teleport into theatres in May 2016.
