Default Characters in Apocalypse

So lets start discussing which characters you wanna have in the movies and played by which actress or actor.
In what role and how these characters would fit in the story.
Dont start discussing OT and FC cast, just the characters you think MUST be in the movie and what kind of role these characters should have.

X-Men:

The Horsemen:

The Brotherhood:

Apocalypse:


Have fun discussing ya'll I will also think of my character list

Default Re: Characters in Apocalypse

Hmmm for a 1st X-Men movie featuring Apocalypse. I don't think we will be getting the four horsemen but I do think he will have a couple of mutants working for him, they aren't just called as the 4 horsemen of Apocalypse. Maybe at the end of the movie, he'd start recruiting or kidnapping mutants to form his 4 horsemen.

As for the X-Men, I want this movie to feature Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, the long awaited big-screen return of Rogue, Colossus and maybe Cyclops/Jean Grey, if they magically appeared at the altered future of DOFP. Then as one of the new faces of the X-Men, I want to see Psylocke or Polaris. I also want to see Angel return into the lives of the X-Men.

As for the Brotherhood, I don't want Magneto and any of the Brotherhood in the movie. Let movie #8 center around Apocalypse and the X-Men.

The characters I think "MUST" be in the movie:

-Any character left alive at the end of DOFP in the 70's part of the film. Sick and tired of the dropped characters.

-Cable. Perfect spot to introduce X-Force's lead character. Show the story through him instead of Wolverine.

-Scott and Jean. Young/new, old, or both.

It will be about En Sabah Nur, so I want to see Billy Zane as Essex.
Next if it's in 80's then I want Amahl Farouk (Amr Waked) and Ororo (Yara Shahidi).
X-Men lineup should be:
Xavier (McAvoy), Beast (Hoult), Thunderbird (Alex Meraz), Banshee (Brian Balzerini), Sunfire (Satoshi Tsumabuki), Nightcrawler (? can't find someone similar to young Cumming), Cyclops (Dylan O’Brien).
Also there should be Cable (Gerard Butler) with his X-Force or some X-Men from future (ex. Rogue).
If Apocalypse can travel in time, Ben Foster should play Archangel.
I have enough of Brotherhood, don't want them in this movie, but looks like we will have Quicksilver, Toad and Scarlet. Then bring back Kevin Durand as Blob.

Ive already said this another thread but I think it would be good to have Wolverine, Storm, Jean and Cyclops leading groups against magneto. It would be a good way to divide screentime between them and show the leadership of cyc too. We could then have xavier and magneto as horsemen possibly storm and mystique too if storm isnt leading a team.

Default Re: Characters in Apocalypse

if the movie is set in the 70's, I think these characters are a must:

Young Cyclops
Young Jean
young Wanda

And appart from them, Id like to see:

Mr. Sinister
Polaris joining Havok (unlikely if Wanda is introduced, but Id love to see it)
Sunfire
Thunderbird
Avalanche

Pretty much this. Although I would like if they added back Havok and Banshee.

Also, I would really love to see Rose Byrne pop up again as Moira.

X-Men: Young Storm, Young Jean, Young cyclops, Xavier, Beast also would love to see Polaris introduced or even Sage would be awesome.

I dont want them to focus on the Brotherhood anymore just Apocaypse and Sinister, unless its shows them being captured as henchmen.

I know thats your dream list but I think you are asking for so many characters.

There's a good balance of amount of X-Men/Brotherhood members there. But when you have 10 mutants who could potentially join-forces, the villain count should be more than two.

I just think it will help show how powerful apoc is. to just have a few x-men is like iron man 3 for me... Where are the avengers haha.

I change mystique to rogue for my pics. Rogue would be great pestilence. Andddd if rogue was augmented by apoc we could see the flying super strength version...

Yeah, agree about Moira, she could be the connection to the human perspective to what's happening.

I'm asking for Giant Size team + some characters. Not more characters than in DOFP movie, and when we have story with Apocalypse it's always a lot of characters.

If the film does not utilise any OT actors, I'm hoping for an 80's set film featuring Xavier, Beast, Cyclops, Jean and Storm.

Not as much as characters that will appear in DOFP.

But you have a huge size of characters that haven't appeared in a X-Men movie yet and huge size of characters that may need explanation why they returned.

With how things are lined up:
Young Scott, Jean, Ororo, Beast, Gambit, Xavier, Magneto, Mystique. Sage or Polaris would be awesome. Would also like to see Havok and Scott established as brothers.

Prefered line up for an Apocalypse storyline would include:
Cyclops, Jean, Storm, Angel, Psylocke, Wolverine, Cable

Edit: Also would like to see Rose Byrne back.

Cable !!!!!!!!!!!!! Cable and Apocalypse are like Harry Potter and Voldemort also I think one of best scenes ever in the movie could be Cable giving his life to stop Apocalypse once and for all !!! and having him dying in Cyclops and Jean`s arms which could motivate Cyclops and Jean to fight for mutant freedom and that humans and mutants can live in peace in memory of there son and Professor X steps down from leadership and gives it to Scott and Jean so he can live happy with Lilandra and everyone else can live happy too end of series The End !!!!!!!!!

I hope they extend Angel's face time (bring back Ben Foster) in this one because he was the pivotal one in the entire story. Definitely see wanna see Psylocke and for sure Rogue and Colossus. It would be interesting if they followed the trajectory of the animated series take on the story.

Default Re: Characters in Apocalypse

X-Men: Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Phoenix, Cable, Magneto, Xavier, Gambit (Sinister's spy in the X-Men)

Brotherhood: Mystique, Blob, Toad, Quicksilver, Post, Juggernaut, Sabertooth (secretly a mole for Sinister)

clan Akkaba: Apocalypse, Frenzy (War), Gauntlet (Famine), Sugar Man (Pestilence), Archangel (Death), Wolverine (Death after Archangel), Sinister (Apocalypse's ally)

Playing everyone against each other as a neutral party for his own agenda: Sinister

At this point, Mystique leads the Brotherhood, Magneto joined the X-Men and Apocalypse opposes both factions. Sinister is the wild card who's instead in charge of Weapon X in a timeline without Stryker and Team X is now the Marauders.


Also, Archangel was a former student of Xaviers' as a small child who lost his wings and was aged to adulthood by Apocalypse who also transformed him into a cyborg. Frenzy willingly joined Apocalypse to drive humanity to extinction for the treatment she faced as a mutant, Gauntlet is a fanged tracker who excels in hunting down other mutants who refuse to serve Apocalypse and would be a brought to life through makeup, Sugar Man is a scientist who serves Apocalypse and helps him devise new types of biological weapons and would be a purely CGI creation.

Wolverine turns to Apocalypse against his will after he's captured in battle and regains his metal claws. Sinister needs to be playing all sides so they they're all weakened for him to take over over while Gambit betrays Sinister and becomes a true X-Man.
