X-Men: Apocalypse Bryan Singer Ben Hardy

The Wrap was the first to break the news that Ben Hardy had landed a key role in X-MEN: APOCLAYPSE, and at the time the site's source claimed although the EastEnders star was being considered to play Warren Worthington III/Angel (and was also up for the Cyclops part), he had been cast in "another important role that is being kept under wraps."

However, it appears Hardy might be playing the winged mutant after all. The Wrap's Jeff Sneider has tweeted that Ben Hardy will indeed be playing Angel in the Bryan Singer film. Earlier this week Singer shared a piece of production art, confirming the character's appearance in the upcoming movie.

Obviously this isn't an official announcement from FOX about Ben Hardy's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE role, but I'd be willing to bet a large sum of money that the actor has been cast as Angel.

In all likeliness Angel will become one of the 4 Horsemen of Apocalypse, hence why they are trying to keep the casting hush-hush.

Besides Wolverine, Archangel is probably the most well known Mutant to become "Death".
I wonder who they will end up using for War, Pestlilence and Famine?

If Brian Singer himself hadn't revealed that Angel would be in the movie then I would have said his playing Angel was a... longshot. :)

I think it's safe to say that he's playing Angel (I mean, just look at the guy).

But the X-Men franchise has done a great job of casting for most of their characters and I'm sure this guy will knock it out of the park.

It will be sad to see if this is indeed the last X-Men movie in the trilogy when they've just cast these great young stars.

I think the idea is that this new cast will carry the series into new films. This film closes a trilogy that started with First Class and will probably be the last X-Men movie for stars like Lawrence, Hoult, Fassbender, etc.

I'm with leadhand83 with this, cyclops needs to be the stand out in these films he is the true leader of the x-men and I'm getting a little tired of the focus always being on wolverine

Damn, I felt sure I was on the money when I predicted he'd play Nathaniel Grey/X-Man.

Don't realky get the secrecy if he is just playing Angel.

Still, not bad casting.
