With X-Men: First Class taking us back to the '60s and X-Men: Days Of Future Past swinging into the '70s, it only makes sense to jump decades again with the next sequel.
And on the Q&A movie podcast, writer Simon Kinberg revealed the year the Apocalypse would take place- 1983!
What historical events will this one touch on? Maybe that Apocalypse guy is just upset about seeing KISS with no makeup and decides to KILL everyone!
Besides the possibility of seeing Jennifer Lawrence wearing an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt, the year of Return Of The Jedi also brings the return of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm!
But this is 17 years before the first movie- so who could play the younger versions of the characters? We have a few ideas…
Ansel Elgort is a great actor AND looks even more like Scott "Slim" Summers than anyone else who's played Cyclops!
Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie would be a tough, feisty, younger Jean Grey.
In the '80s, Storm rocked a white mohawk like no one else, and no one has a better chance of pulling that off than Oscar-winner and fashion icon Lupita Nyong'o!
