With the new X-Men movies talking a look at the younger years of the characters that we enjoyed in the original X-Men trilogy, it means that we have seen a lot of the characters from those movies being recast with younger stars in the roles. Next up we have the new movie X-Men: Apocalypse heading our way, which will give us some younger versions of some more characters from the X-Men trilogy.
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry played the role of Storm in the original X-Men trilogy, while reprising the role for the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past but we will see the character being recast with a younger star for X-Men: Apocalypse. We already know that actress Alexandra Shipp will play the role of Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse and we are looking forward to seeing what she will bring to the role.
With shooting for X-Men: Apocalypse set to begin in April, Alexandra Shipp has been getting herself into tip top shape, working out in the gym and making sure that she eats right. Alexandra recently took to her official Instagram account, to post a picture of herself in the gym, along with the caption, "For this ex-chubby AZ girl to get into shape... I must avoid my nemesis Mexican food... Thanks for the great workout @lilbearlawson #TeamLilBear."
As well as seeing Alexandra Shipp joining the cast as Storm, we will also see Sophie Turner taking on the role of Jean Grey, with Tye Sheridan as Cyclops. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit the big screen on May 19, 2016 in the UK and May 27, 2016 in the US.
