While the movie will be Ben’s first ‘X-Men’ outing, it’s set to be the last for a number of the franchise’s huge stars.

Last month, Jennifer confirmed that ‘Apocalypse’ will be her last 'X-Men' movie, while Hugh Jackman has also hinted that he’s planning to hang up his Wolverine claws.

Ben isn’t the only former ‘EastEnders’ star swapping Walford for West Hollywood, as his old co-star Sam Strike is also believed to have scored a top film role.
