Tye Sheridan Given James Marsden’s Blessing To Play Young Cyclops In X-Men Apocalypse, And 2016 Release Date!
James Marsden who reprises his role as Cyclops / Scott Summers in 2016’s X-Men Apocalypse movie, has given his blessing to Tye Sheridan of “Mud” fame, to play a younger version of the character. The film will feature scenes with several of the mutants in their younger years.
Marsden says he couldn’t be happier that Sheridan has been cast, saying that he did an amazing job in Mud. He says that he’s never seen a young actor with such screen presence, and that they couldn’t have found a better person to play young Cyclops.
Marsden has been a mainstay of the X-Men movie franchise, appearing in every film, including a brief appearance in 2014’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for a May 27, 2016 release date, with principal photography beginning in April this year, from Montreal, Canada.
Also reprising their roles include James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Michael Fassbender as Mageneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.
The Bryan Singer directed movie is set roughly a decade after the last film, which brings the plot in to the 80s. The mutants are tasked with the insurmountable mission to destroy En Sabah Nur, played by Oscar Isaac. Often called “The First One” En Sabah Nur is one of the original and most powerful mutants, who can be traced back to the ancient world. He has the ability to morph his DNA with his mind and attack enemies with telekinesis. It seems the plot will be drawn from the 1996 comic series “Rise of Apocalypse.”
It seems Nur may simply be called Apocalypse in the film.
Other new cast members include Sophie Turner from Game Of Thrones as Jean Grey, and Alexandra Shipp as Storm.
Grey recently told Access Hollywood that she was very emotional when she got the call back because she felt she messed up the whole audition. She admitted that she even ended up crying, but they clearly saw something in her.

HBO has given an official series order to J.J. Abrams’ new sci-fi series “Westworld, ” according to Deadline. The show is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, and it was adapted for the small screen by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
The series has an incredible cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Miranda Otto and Jeffrey Wright.
The story is set at an amusement park called, you guessed it, “Westworld,” and it’s described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”
Harris will play one of the central leads in the story known as The Man in Black, “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” Marsden is will play a character named Teddy Flood, “a mysterious new arrival to a small frontier town. Teddy quickly proves both his charm, and his talent with a revolver, while his pursuit of a local beauty launches him on a dark odyssey.” Eddie Rouse has also joined the production and will play Kissy, “a laconic, American-Indian who deals cards and contraband from the town saloon.”
The 1973 movie starring Yul Brenner, James Brolin and Richard Benjamin is a bona fide classic; essential viewing if you haven’t seen it already. Abrams certainly has the golden touch as of late, and with a fantastic cast and proven premise as his disposal, I think he’s going to have another big winner on his hands here.
