Born with genetic mutations that give them abilities beyond those of normal humans, mutants are the next stage in evolution. As such, they are feared and hated by humanity. But a group of mutants known as the X-Men fight for peaceful coexistence between mutants and humankind. But not all mutants see peaceful coexistence as a reality.
Hardy, a former EastEnders star, was cast a while back, but his character name was withheld. However, Empire got on the phone with Singer, and with production for the new movie beggining soon, Singer confirmed: “Ben Hardy is Angel - I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…“
