X-Men: Apocalypse To Have Ickle Baby Versions of Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey
'80s Mohawk Storm or bust.
We told you yesterday that Bryan Singer will be directing X-Men: Apocalypse, but that’s not the only X-news that’s broken. There’s a new plot description out, and it has some pleasing nuggets.
“The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles (James McAvoy), Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet: an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history.”
So… Charles and Erik are working together again? That should make Tumblr happy. The big news here, though, is that Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey—the latter two brought back from death after Days of Future Past decided fuck it, we’re just going to retcon The Last Stand out of existence—will be coming back into the fray, but as younger versions of themselves. That makes sense, given we already knew Apocalypse would be a got-dang ’80s period film.
