Well, this is exciting news for mutant fans to start their weekend with!


What does the X-Men franchise and HBO mega-smash Game of Thrones have in common? That would be one Sophie Turner! 

Director Bryan Singer has confirmed the casting of three young stars who will join Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Playing the young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm will be Sophie Turner (GoT's Sansa Stark), alongside fresh faces Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp. How exciting!

What do you think of the new cast, are they good matches for Famke Janssen, James Marsden, and Halle Berry?
