Lucas Till Is Back As Havok In X-Men: Apocalypse

Anyone else have the animated series theme song stuck in their head now? Just me? Okay.

In his most recent casting announcement on Instagram, director Bryan Singer announced that Lucas Till will be reprising his X-Men: First Class role as Alex Summers, AKA Havok in the sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Till did have a bit of a cameo in the last Singer-directed X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past. There’s no word on how much of a part he’ll be playing in the upcoming sequel, though he is joining an already massive ensemble cast. Returning favorites include Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, and Nicholas Hoult as Beast. New introductions include Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Lana Condor as Jubilee.

Recently, before Till’s announcement, Singer took to his Instagram to introduce Olivia Munn as Psylocke.

It’ll be interesting to see how they play out Havok’s relationship with Cyclops, and whether they’ll keep to the traditional sibling comic story or if they’ll imagine up something completely new.
