In an interview with Empire, Bryan Singer spilt some beans on the actor to play Angel in the upcoming 20th Century FOX film X-Men: Apocalypse:
Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…
So… Ben Hardy then.
And check out some concept art for the character. Shouldn’t his skin be blue or something? Or is this Angel different from X-Men’s Archangel? In any case this Angel is definitely on of the warrior types:
X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer starring Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Channing Tatum, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Rose Byrne, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Oscar Issac.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27th 2016
