Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning & Hailee Steinfeld Eyed To Play Jean Grey In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ And More

Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning & Hailee Steinfeld Eyed To Play Jean Grey In 'X-Men: Apocalypse' And More

With “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” wiping the history of the franchise mostly clean, it’s time to start recasting the roles of your favorite mutants, to join Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters). And it looks like Fox is starting with Jean Grey and Cyclops.

According to The WrapChloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are among those considered for the role last incarnated by Famke Janssen. Those names have enough clout to suggest the Grey character will be a major part of the upcoming sequel (and the inevitable subsequent movies). However, that’s not the case for those taking over from James Marsden as Cyclops. The much lesser known Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet are being looked at for that part. 

So for now, speculate and debate below, and let us know if you like the direction this is going. “X-Men: Apocalypse” films next spring and will open on May 27, 2016.

Out of that group, Hailee Steinfeld for sure. Talent always wins.


Actually Hailee Stienfild is a Oscar nominee (True Grit) and is already doing a ton of movies. Hailee looks perfect for the part, She was in the top two to play Katniss in Hunger Games which many said she was absolutely perfect for the part, even her age at the time was the same as the book character. But she was deemed to young for any romance that the director wanted to do. Now that Hailee is almost 18, she most likely will be picked up for such roles now. Basically she can do any role she wants to play. She acted with so may Oscar caliber actors and actresses already.


I dont see Elle wanting to do this at all. Chloe no doubt would.


Cast Hailee Steinfeld! All 3 of these young ladies are very talented and I’m a fan of the 3, but Steinfeld needs the job more (in my opinion) she’s very talented but not as known as Fanning or Moretz. Landing the role of Young Jean Grey would do wonders for her career.


Once again, Cyclops gets unfairly shafted. Dude cannot catch a break with this franchise.


The Chloe Grace Moretz Experiment should wrap up soon


None of them. Find a real woman.


They couldn’t go any younger?


Alicia Vikander for Jean Grey!
