Marvel’s Bryan Singer has confirmed what we’ve known for quite some time, revealing that former 'EastEnder' Ben Hardy will be playing ‘Angel’ in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, but there’s an extra treat for fans.
The producer has also revealed the first concept art for the movie, revealing that Ben’s character definitely isn’t a saintly one.
In the pictures, when Ben’s character spreads his wings, daggers are revealed, where feathers should be.
Ben will star alongside a number of A-listers in the upcoming movie, including Jennifer Lawrence and Hugh Jackman, who have both hinted that ‘Apocalypse’ will be their last outing in the ‘X-Men’ franchise.
Ben’s not the only ‘EastEnders’ actor to swap Walford for West Hollywood, and his former co-star Sam Strike is also believed to have scored a huge film role.
