Simon Kinsberg, writer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, has confirmed news that we are very unlikely to see any of the original X-Men cast in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Taking part in a Q&A on Yahoo, Kinsberg reiterated that the new film will focus on the X-Men: First Class cast and if we are to see any original trilogy characters, they would more than likely have to be recast.

"If we included some of the original X-Men like Storm and Jean and Scott and other in Apocalypse, yeah we'd have to recast them, as Apocalypse takes place a good twenty years before [the first] X-Men, which was now, insanely, a good ten to fifteen years ago.

"It would be really hard to do. Halle (Berry) and Famke (Janssen) and Jimmy (Marsden) and others have done such wonderful jobs of bringing those parts to life, and are so identified with those parts now. So it would be a tall task. But I also would have said before First Class that there would be no actors who can stand alongside Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart."

In case you missed it, Bryan Singer has been revelled to be returning to direct the film.

X-Men: Apocalypse is due for release May 27, 2016.
