When 'X-Men: Apocalypse' opens in 2016 it'll be Tye Sheridan donning the ruby quartz visor. Here's what Marsden told HitFix about Sheridan's casting -
"I think he's a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in Mud. I've never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. So, I think he's a perfect fit and I congratulate him." - James Marsden
So, getting the thumbs up from the veteran actor is pretty cool - wouldn't you say?
