Movie News: "Original" Cast Members Returning for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

With X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST currently doing impressive numbers at the box office, the belief was that X-MEN: APOCALYPSE would focus purely on the younger cast introduced in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, such as Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. Apparently not.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, writer Simon Kinberg said, “It will focus primarily on the FIRST CLASS cast, but it will certainly have some of the original cast involved, too.”

So some of the original X-series cast will be returning? Just who, that remains to be seen. Given the non-aging nature of the character and that he’s the poster boy of the franchise, it seems a given that Hugh Jackman will return for an eight outing as Wolverine. Also, in recent months, Patrick Stewart has talked about how he’d like to return if possible. Plus, does this mean that time travel may be incorporated into APOCALYPSE then?

Either way, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is currently set for a 27th May, 2016 release.
