Well, at least Tye Sheridan has the original Cyclops' seal of approval!
After news broke of the casting of Game of Thrones' Sophie Hunter as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, and Tye as Cyclops for X-Men: Apocalypse it was only a matter of time before the old cast was asked about their thoughts on the newbies!

Well, James Marsden, who played Cyclops in the original X-Men movies just what he thought about his replacement and his words are not what you'd expect!
He basically raved about the 'perfect' 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."
Wow! That's some high praise, coming from James!
We're impressed! Let's hope Tye can live up to the hype! Though, let's be real, they wouldn't have cast him if he wasn't capable!
What do YOU think about the casting decision?
