In a fan Q&A session at Yahoo, X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg says the franchise is done with Halle Berry, James Marsden, and Famke Janssen, none of whom were born with a genetic mutation that allows them to reverse their own aging process. “If we include some of the original X-Men like Storm or Jean [Grey] or Scott [Summers] in X-Men:Apocalypse, we would have to recast them,” Kinberg said, “because Apocalypse takes place a good 20 years before X1, which, insanely, was 15 years ago.” Hugh Jackman, meanwhile, will play Wolverine until he morphs into a sinewy mass of veins and muscles.
