Bryan Singer Reveals Angel in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Production Art

March 30, 2015

X-Men: Apocalypse

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:

X-Men: Apocalypse

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?

    Well that wasn't hard to guess.

    I wish they would bring back warren Worthington for the role. That guy is an amazing actor.

    Well..........he's Angel until Apocalypse gets a hold of him and transforms him into Archangel, which by the way, is MUCH cooler.

    He doesn't "have" to be in this movie. Angel becomes Archangel after the Mutants Massacre. Granted, Apocalyspe is the one who turns him into Archangel, but "Age of Apocalypse" is an entirely different storyline. Also, Warren isn't even in it that much outside of playing Switzerland. Plus without the emotional attachment of having him as a X-Men for the start then the heart-wrench of seeing him fall into depression after his wings get amputated wouldn't have the same emotional resonance when he agrees to make that Deal with the Devil. He'll probably end up being just another "Look !!! It's that character from the X-Men" like Angel, Darwin or Azazel with no real depth to them outside of the barely longer than a cameo part. :/

      They aren't doing the Age of Apocalypse storyline. Sadly.

    I like Ben Foster as an Actor but not as Warren. They need to reach something on the scale of "Angel Face" in Fight Club. The scene, when he's turned into Archangel or when he's losing his wings, has to feel like when the "Narrator" takes on Leto's face for the sake of "... destroying something beautiful". Something pure needs to be savagely lost forever.
    Ugh...that looks effed up.
