We’ve heard for some time now that Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is casting the roles of young Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm, as the film will focus more on the younger generation of ‘First Class’ rather than once again uniting both old and new casts. While several names were floated, Fox has officially settled on their choices, with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner set to play Jean, ‘Joe’ star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ star Alexandra Shipp taking on the role of Storm.

‘Uncle Scrooge’ Comic Is Returning This April From IDW, With Scrooge Possibly Punching Out A Robot

Scrooge00

If there's one thing I think we can all agree on, it's that comics have been suffering from a distinct lack of Uncle Scrooge lately. He is, after all, officially ranked at #3 on ComicsAlliance's definitive but sadly unpublished list of the greatest comic book characters of all time, but while reprints of his more famous adventures have been making their way back to shelves recently, he hasn't had a monthly book in almost four years.

Fortunately, that's a problem that's soon to be remedied: Starting in April, IDW will be publishing a new monthly Uncle Scrooge comic as part of a new line of Disney books, kicking off the return of the whole line with Donald Duck in May, Mickey Mouse in April, and the long-running Walt Disney's Comics And Stories in June.
