Sansa Stark to Play Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse


Bryan Singer unveiled three more actors-cum-mutants appearing in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film: Alexandra Shipp (a.k.a. Lifetime's Aaliyah), Sophie Turner (a.k.a. HBO's Sansa Stark), and Tye Sheridan (a.k.a. that kid from Mud). Shipp will play Storm; Turner, Jean Grey; and Sheridan, Cyclops. If they look more like Teen Titan cast members to you that's because this is going to be a weird, semi-retro 1980s-set installment, of which a majority of the plot details are still unknown. The three relatively young players join Oscar Isaac (the eponymous villain), Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender on the Singer-helmed project, which comes out May 27, 2016. Yeah, you've got a while, so maybe just watch the Ultron trailers on repeat to get your comic-book-movie fix.
