Ben Hardy confirmed as Angel in X-Men: Apocalypse

It really is Reveal Day, isn’t it? Following the reveal of The Thing visual, Daredevil’s red suit, and The Vision character poster, director Bryan Singer has confirmed exclusively to Empire that Angel will be in X-Men: Apocalypse, and that he’ll be played by Ben Hardy.

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…

And, as if to back that up, this piece of exclusive concept art shows Angel in two guises - with wings furled and then unfurled. And those wings look less like feathers and more like daggers… Might we also be about to meet Archangel?
