Last month, director Bryan Singer revealed some concept art from the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, seemingly showing off the title villains ship and a shadowy figure. Now the filmmaker is teasing more of the mutant sequel, this time with a little less mystery. The artwork in question looks to be in a theater with a caged attraction, a winged man that must be none other than Angel. It looks like he's become a sideshow attraction of sorts, but we can't imagine he'll be there for long and will end up crossing paths with the X-Men. But will we get to see him become Archangel this time? That would be cool. Look!
Here's the X-Men: Apocalypse production art that Bryan Singer posted on Twitter:
Back when Ben Hardy was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse, there were rumblings that he would be playing Angel in the film, but other sources said he would be another significant character instead. If Hardy isn't playing Angel, it sounds like someone else will be. Either way, this seems to be confirmation straight form Singer that the mutant will be part of this X-Men sequel, joining other new additions like Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops and Nightcrawler respectively, and the most recent addition, Lana Condor as Jubilee. Stay tuned for more updates. Well?
