Director Bryan Singer has made a big announcement via Twitter. He’s cast the younger versions of Jean Grey, Storm, and Cyclops in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.

Sophie Turner, whom many know as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, will play Jean Grey, the red headed telepathic and telekinetic mutant. Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life, Mud) takes on the role of Scott Summers/Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp, who most recently played Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, will be Ororo Munroe/Storm.
The trio will join Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, and Oscar Isaac in the latest X-Men film set to be released May 2016.
Sophie Turner certainly has the *look* for Jean Grey…I’ll wait to judge the casting though.
