While a number of spinoff X-Men movies are in the works (“New Mutants,” “Gambit,” “X-Force,” a third “Wolverine” and a sequel to “Deadpool”), the future of the flagship franchise is a little bit less clear. A team-based follow-up to “X-Men: Apocalypse” has not been officially announced yet, but at least one of the film’s newcomers has a contract that indicates there will be more X-Men team movies in the future.
As revealed in Entertainment Weekly’s profile of Tye Sheridan, who plays Cyclops in “Apocalypse,” the 19-year-old actor has signed on for two additional X-Men films. That’s a big commitment considering that Sheridan didn’t see any of the “X-Men” films until 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
“After I saw it, I just thought, ‘Oh my God. I’ve been missing this the whole time?!'” Sheridan told EW. “I went back and watched all the previous films, and I quickly became obsessed.” The article states that Sheridan then sought out the role of Cyclops once he heard Fox was casting a younger version of the character.
While there isn’t an official film lined up for the team after “Apocalypse,” rumors have started that the next film may handle the “Dark Phoenix Saga.”.
Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Tye Sheridan and more, “X-Men: Apocalypse” opens on May 27, 2016.
