X-Men: Apocalypse casts new Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey

Hang on to your seats, X-Men fans, because new cast announcements have been made and they're super-exciting.

X-Men is adding three fresh young faces to the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, and in some of the most popular roles. Director Bryan Singer announced the cast via Twitter, so although we don't yet know how prominently the new cast will be featured, we can still get excited about the possibilities.

Tye Sheridan will play Cyclops

Shipp (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B) is probably excited beyond belief to be stepping into the role, although Halle Berry's Storm will be a tough act to follow.

Game of Thrones fans, rejoice! Not only did GOT star Peter Dinklage deliver a terrific performance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but now the actress who plays his suffering child bride on GOT, Sophie Turner, will also get a starring turn in the mutant franchise. Turner will play the powerful telepath (and love interest of both Cyclops and Wolverine) Jean Grey. With that long red hair of hers, she's an excellent fit for the role.
