Director Bryan Singer teased earlier this year: “…he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”
The role of Angel was previously played by Ben Foster in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) will play Jean Grey in the film, alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse and returning cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
