So who is Kodi Smit-Mcphee? Perhaps one of the last well known films you may remember him from recently was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Also, the now 18-year-old played the son of Viggo Mortensen in the 2009 post-apocalyptic thriller The Road.

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult will lead the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, which will also see the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert and newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and now Kodi Smit-McPhee as young versions of Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler. The film is being written by Simon Kinberg from a treatment by Mike Dougherty, Dan Harris and Kinberg.

The conclusion of X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, production for the film is set to begin this April.

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