X-Men: Apocalypse has found its Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey.

The 18-year-old actress plays Sansa Stark in the HBO fantasy series, and will now turn her hand to the role of telepathic mutant Jean Grey in Bryan Singer’s Days of Future Past follow-up.For the last couple of weeks, comic book movie fans have been engrossed with the latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and counting down the days until the movie’s May 1 premiere date. Singer announced the news on Twitter this morning, also confirming that House of Anubis’ Alexandra Shipp and The Tree of Life’s Tye Sheridan will star as Storm and Cyclops respectively.

However, on Thursday, there was some blockbuster news from a different corner from the Marvel that, for at least a little bit, got us talking about a different Marvel franchise — one that Marvel doesn’t even own the film rights to. The three new cast members join Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Oscar Isaac on the third rebooted X-Men instalment.

What’s clear from the casting is that Storm, Jean, and Cyclops are going to be younger than what we’re used to seeing in both the comics (All-New X-Men the exception) and the movies.
