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