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.
