Rose Byrne will reprise her First Class role in X-Men: Apocalypse

02.02.2015

X-Men: Apocalypse Bryan Singer Rose Byrne

Rose Byrne's Moira MacTaggert from X-MEN: FIRST CLASS didn't appear in DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, however, she will be back for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, according to Simon Kinberg. The screenwriter/producer also said Byrne's character will play a big part in the Bryan Singer film during his conversation with EW.

She’s a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them. It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one.

Kinberg continues by saying X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will wrap up some of the story arcs that began in FIRST CLASS.

This movie is the completion of the first arcs of Charles, Eric, Raven, and Hank, who are essentially our main characters. They’re such young actors and young characters, so there’s a lot more story to tell. But as a first phase of their lives, there is this feeling of closure by the end of the movie.

Dazzler

Simon Kinberg also sounded very nostalgic while talking about the 1980s setting for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and teased Dazzler could appear in the film, since they are "certainly looking at mutants that would fit into the period.”

That’s the era that I grew up in. The music, the fashion, the videogames: We really want to integrate all of that in the movie, and have it infuse the movie with a different vibe.

Are you down for Dazzler appearing in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and what are your thoughts on more of Rose Byrne's Moira MacTaggert?

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

First class is easily my favourite men flick and that has to do with the cast, i hate the cast from the original trilogy and i really disliked dofp and the inclusion if the older cast played a large part in me not enjoying it. So any news like this its the thumbs up from me!

I was just thinking after recently seeing her in another film that they should bring her back. It made sense to leave her out of days of future past since one of the themes is Charles feeling alone and abandoned, and dealing with that. Byrne is a great underrated actress, so I'm glad to see her back.

I'm glad they didn't force her character in DOFP just b/c they introduced her in First Class. It makes since to bring her back at this point. Plus, Rose Byrne is great! She could be in everything and I would be happy.

Good for her

I liked her role in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and didn't like the way they wrote her out at the end of the first film. Good to see she's coming back for APOCALYPSE.

Moira MacTaggert would have a large role, I think. Can't pinpoint exactly but I sort of remember that in the 90s cartoon there was a connection between her and Mystique or Apocalypse.

Yea, in the cartoon she was a scientist and developed a syrum to allow mutants to get rid of their mutation/powers. It turned out that she was actually being used by Apocalypse and the syrum just allowed Apocalypse to control mutants as his Four Horsemen - in the cartoon that's how Angel and Rogue become horsemen.

Since they changed her from being a scientist to a CIA agent, not really sure how she would figure into the plotline. But her character worked so well in First Class that

I don't think it was Moira MacTaggert - it was some German doctor that created the syrum...but the German doctor was just Mystique in disguise. MacTaggert's role in the series involved her being a doctor and friend of Professor X and her looking after him after he lost himself to his dark side. The episode you're thinking of is the one where Rogue travels to Ireland to give up her powers but changes her mind. Angel doesn't and then becomes one of the four.
