Badass Digest must look like an X-Men: Apocalypse fan site right now, as the top two stories on the front page both focus on the film. Well, to set the record straight, I am not a big fan of the movie. Not that I think it will stink, necessarily, but I really can’t stand writing the word Apocalypse. It's like trying to brush my teeth with my left hand, that word.
Duty keeps me writing about this movie, however. And this morning duty dictates that I tell you this big news: The film’s 1980s version of Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm have been cast. Grey will be played by Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner, Cyclops will be played by Tree of Life’s Tye Sheridan, and Storm will be played by Drumline: A New Beat’s Alexandra Shipp. Hopefully with a mohawk.
I’m not sure when you’ll next watch Tree of Life or Drumline: A New Beat, but I’m positive many of you will soon watch some Game of Thrones action. When you do, just think to yourself - Hey! That’s Jean Grey. It’ll either improve or ruin your mood drastically.
