The Ridiculous ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Cast
Olivia joins an already thrilling– no seriously, thrilling— cast for X-Men: Apocalypse. In the starring role of Raven/Mystique will be none other than Jennifer Lawrence! Also alongside JLaw will be Evan Peters as Peter/Quicksilver, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr/Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert and, honestly, so many others we can’t even name them all here.
Also very excitingly, though unconfirmed, Channing Tatum is rumored to be starring in the film as Remy LeBeau/Gambit, and Hugh Jackman is rumored to be reprising his iconic role as Logan/Wolverine. For the record, we would just like to say that we are completely on board with both of these hypotheticals!
Because the film is still quite a ways off, no official plot description is even available! So, for the time being, all we’ve got are these amazing castings– and our wild imaginations!
