A report surfaced on Friday (1-9-15) that claims to have the list of actors being considered for roles in 2016's 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.

The last installment of the 'First Class' trilogy will focus primarily on Magneto, Mystique and Professor X, but Cyclops and Jean Grey will reportedly be included, as well. However, the Cyclops and Jean Grey roles will be younger versions - not portrayed by James Marsden and Famke Janssen, as in the original X-Men trilogy.

According to Latino Review, the actresses who are allegedly up for the part of Jean Grey are Saoirse Ronan (The Host) and Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones). As for Cyclops, director Bryan Singer is reportedly considering relatively less well-known actors Tye Sheridan (Mud), Taron Edgerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and Jamie Blackley (If I Stay).
