I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that the casting rumors floating around the internets about the new young X-MEN: Apocalypse cast left much to be desired. By that, I mean that every pick I’ve seen has been boring. Whether it’s been the actresses being looked at due to their celebrity statuses, or the boys being looked at for Cyclops who seemingly blend together, the choices are dull and predictable.
I’m not saying that I could think of anyone better.
Nope, I’m definitely saying that.
I’ve already lost about 50% of my excitement for this film due to the news that to bank on Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender’s star statuses, they’re going to be turning the next film into some sort of rom-com romp between Magneto and Mystique (so much stupidity floating around). I lost 40% more when I remembered that Bryan Singer was still directing. So, the remaining 10% of hope I have is dedicated to the chance of seeing James McAvoy be James McAvoy, and the chance that the casting directors will find some interesting and charismatic talent to take on the roles of characters we know so well, but at a different point in their lives.
So, with that being said and my frustrations known, here are my picks for who would be nice to see take on the mantles of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm.
