Ben Hardy is Angel in X Men
After months of rumours that former Eastenders actor Ben Hardy, was being eyed up to star in Bryan Singers X Men we finally got confirmation last month.

Now it has been confirmed exactly what Marvel character the 24 year old will be playing, which is the feathered winged mutant Angel.

Formerly portrayed by Ben foster in X Men Last Stand, angel has superhuman strength and with several elements of his anatomy similar to that of a Bird of Prey.

Although formerly Angel was portrayed as a hero it seems that Ben Hardy version is going to be near that of Archangel.  Director Brian Singer was quoted as saying “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…”

In the picture it seems that the wings are made up of daggers rather than wings, it seems that the story of Angel is following in line with the comics, where Angel loses his wings before earning them back by agreeing to join the evil Apocalypse, leading to the creation of Archangel.

Oscar Isaac will play Apocalypse in the new movie, which will feature young versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, Jubilee and Storm appearing alongside the likes of Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicolas Hoult).

X-Men: Apocalypse will arrive in cinemas on May 27, 2016.
