Spec Alert! X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Here at Comicbookinvest.com, we do the research for you and strive to help you find that book before the next comic head does.
Per Variety, British actor Ben Hardy has been cast in a key role in the X-Men: Apocalypse movie. The main focus here is “key” role. As far as Apocalypse story lines go, we see two main possibilities for a key character that has not been cast yet.
Mister Sinister, or Nathaniel Essex, played a role in both the Mutant Massacre and Age of Apocalypse story lines. He is also a major X-Men villain who has not seen the big screen yet. You can find his 1st Appearance in Uncanny X-Men #221, which also features a sweet Marc Silvestri cover.
Archangel, or Warren Worthington III, also played a significant role in the Fall of the Mutants storyline. Even more interesting, Archangel played Death, one of Apocalypse's Four Horseman. Archangel's 1st Appearance can be found in X-Factor #24, which shows a sweet Walt Simonson cover. Shout out to Yanni Gogolak for the tip on Archangel.
Both of these books are actually worth grabbing as they are very affordable at this point in time. Also the fact that eventually, both of these characters will most likely get cast in the X-Men: Age of Apocalypse movie, means these books have nowhere to go but up.
