With casting rumors picking up, its getting time to talk about the non Disney/WB superhero movie that people care about. I am sure people don't want me to pollute the general news thread with X-Men news

Young actors are being sought for the role of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

Quote:
Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld are among the teenage leading ladies being eyed to play young Jean Grey in Bryan Singer‘s “X-Men: Apocalypse,” while Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet are under consideration for the role of young Cyclops, multiple individuals familiar with the 20th Century Fox project have told TheWrap.

Maybe its just me as I am not really into the whole X-Men stuff, but it seems like there are soooo many movies about these guys, Wolverine series included. It just seems abit old to me.

Its just you. (and others who arent into XMen).

If you were, you would be loving it.

And considering the movies are actually getting better, not worse (not including Last Stand), they can keep going as long as they want.

There certainly isn't a lack of good storylines for more movies. Once Jackman hangs up the claws and they get away from being so Wolverine-centric, I'd love to see a Mr Sinister storyline.

If Cyclops is in this, I hope they actually flesh out his character out more and not just have him be this lame, broody jock.

I loved James Marsden as Cyclops, but the way the character was written (especially in Last Stand) was just...terrible.

I doubt it....with as many other actors and characters that are in it already.

Plus none of the actors they are looking at are near the same level of popularity and/or talent of who they are looking at for Jean.

So Jean will probably be the focus again, besides Magneto, Mystique, Professor X, and Wolverine of course.

Meh....

This movie will probably be the final movie for Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender so it will close their arcs.

Cyclops and Jean Grey will probably have a small role in this movie before becoming the lead in future X-Men movies.

I doubt that they let their hooks out of Jennifer Lawrence any time soon.

i dont think that would be their choice honeslty, she's like a megastar now so i can see jlaw leaving to make bigger movies. HOWEVER i don't agree she should, she's gonna make a lottttt of money on xmen

It all depends on the original contract she signed.

She signed this contract a year before she was even casted in The Hunger Games. I doubt Fox would have signed her to more then a 3 film deal when her only significant film was Winter's Bone even if it was nominated for a bunch of oscars.

Maybe Fox can use the franchise tag on her? Its hard to know without knowing the contract details

I don't think money is much of an issue to her after starring in 2 major franchises. She could probably get any role she wants for whatever money she wants.

I am sure she is going to want to do more "artsy" films that get have a chance to get nominated for Academy Awards
