The next installment in the X-Men franchise is set to begin production this spring, so therefore its no wonder that the casting directors are out looking for fresh new talent and that the rumour mill has begun.

We know that the main X-Men: First Class cast – including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence – are all returning, but what is unclear is who will be playing young Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm.

For Cyclops we have previsouly reoted that Interstellar’s Timothee Chalamet, EastEnders’ Ben Hardy and Red Band Society’s Charlie Rowe were on the list for this one. They still are, apparently. But now you can add Taron Egerton

(KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, top middle), Jamie Blackley , and Tye Sheridan going for the part. Sheridan gave great performances in THE TREE OF LIFE and MUD so it’s no surprise that he’s said to be the frontrunner for the part.

As for Jean Grey, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark, ) and Saoirse Ronan (HANNA,) are said to be contenders. Obviously a little biased for the Stark sister, but Turner would be great for that role! We certainly know she can handle big budget drama.

There are two contenders for the role of Storm as things stand. And they are Zendaya Coleman and Alexandra Ship.

We will keep you posted

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
