Umm... are you going to drink that Skooma?

Age of Apocalypse is, without a doubt, one of my favorite X-Men storylines, and still stands as the most memorable - not discounting Days of Future Past by any means of course. And I was over the moon when Bryan Singer revealed that he was set to take the helm of the cinematic adaptation.

My mind instantly flew back to when I first got around to reading the comics in school, and rushing back from said establishment to catch the X-Men Animated Series' take on the awesomeness, containing this brilliant scene packed with cheesy but well sick hero shots:

And with a cast packed full of current A-listers and bonafide future stars, and a rumored appearance from everyone's favorite explosive card slingin' badass, Gambit, what could possibly go wrong?!

So, let's gather and get a little bit more excited than we should do and have a look at the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse...

Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse

James McAvoy as Prof. Charles Xavier

Michael Fassbender and Sir Ian McKellen as Erik Lensherr/Magneto

Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkhölme/Mystique

Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/Beast

Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver

Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers/Cyclops

Sophie Turner as Jean Grey

Lana Condor as Jubilation Lee/Jubilee

Lucas Till as Alex Summers/Havok

Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe/Storm

Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler

Olivia Munn as Betsy Braddock/Psylocke

Ben Hardy as Warren Worthington III/Angel

Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert


Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine


Channing Tatum as Gambit

How about that for a cast?! I can't wait to see how Tatum's Gambit turns out, and Jubilee too! I wonder if her powers will look more impressive on the silver screen than they did in the animated series. Sansa Stark as a young Jean Grey? Genius move!

I, for one, will be setting my alarm for the dawn of the Age of Apocalypse.

How about you?
