At the risk of tooting our own trumpets, we got Bryan Singer on the record about recasting Cyclops and Jean Grey for the 80s-set X-Men: Apocalypse way back in Spring 2014, but now some casting leads (different names from the set recently reported by The Wrap) have broken online through notorious nonsense factory Latino Review.

Usual caveats apply: unless there’s a named source, don’t treat it as fact.
