It's getting to the point that X-Men: Apocalypse isn't going to have enough screen time for all the mutants who are slated to appear in the film, and it just so happens that one more has been added to the cast. Director Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram yet again to reveal that franchise star Lucas Till, who played the mutant Havok in a pivotal supporting role in X-Men: First Class and a brief appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, will be back for the next film in the mutant franchise. There's no indication as to how involved he'll be in this sequel, but this addition really has the potential to make things interesting.
Here's the post Bryan Singer made on Instagram about Lucas Till in X-Men: Apocalypse:
For those who don't know, Havok just happens to be the brother of Cyclops in the X-Men comic books. And since Tye Sheridan is slated to play a young Cyclops in the film as well, could we finally be able to see these two together as brothers? My bet would be no, if only because there will be a decent age difference between Havok and Cyclops in this film, but that fact wouldn't necessarily preclude them from being brothers. If anything, maybe we'll get a fun little reference to their comic book mythology, much like Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) had an amusing moment in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
This news comes after Olivia Munn joined the cast as Psylocke earlier this week. Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee also join the team as Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops and Nightcrawler respectively with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne all reprising their franchise roles. Meanwhile, newcomer Lana Condor will be Jubilee, Ben Hardy has been confirmed to play Angel (see concept art here) and Evan Peters is supposed to show up as Quicksilver again. That's a lot of mutants. X-Men: Apocalypse arrives on May 27th, 2016.
