‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Production Art Hints at Angel’s Return

Rumors that Angel could appear in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse have been out there for a while, but now it looks like the character has been confirmed. Ben Hardy of EastEnders, has been reportedly cast as the airborne mutant.

Not coincidentally, I expect, this announcement coincides with another interesting bit of concept art from Singer, showing who could only be Angel trapped in a giant bird cage.

Angel has previously appeared in X-Men: The Last Stand, portrayed by Ben Foster. Now that he’s appearing in a movie with Apocalypse, many fans expect that his comic backstory as one of Apocalypse’s minions may come into play.
