(SPOT.ph) Head’s up, X-Men fans! Sansa Stark is your new Jean Grey. Next year’s highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse will feature three younger versions of the three most recognizable characters.

 

Sophie Turner will take over the role originally played by Famke Janssen. The younger Cyclops will be played by Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, Joe), while Storm will be portrayed by Alexandra Shipp (best known for her TV role as Aaliyah). The three actors will join fellow X-Men newbie Oscar Isaac (the film’s titular baddie, Apocalypse) and returning cast members, including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence.
