On April 9, Bryan Singer shared an Instagram photo of the latest addition to X-Men: Age of Apocalypse — Archangel.

In the comics, Warren Worthington III originally joined the X-Men as Angel, a mutant with wings. He had those wings ripped from his body and the evil mutant Apocalypse replaced them, turning him into Archangel.

Bryan Singer confirmed to Empire that Ben Hardy has been cast as Angel and that he's "not a very nice Angel." The image confirms that Ben will be portraying Archangel.


Peter was the brother of Lucy Beale, who was tragically murdered in 2014 launching a year-long murder mystery on EastEnders.

The murderer was eventually revealed to be Peter's half-brother, Bobby Beale, during EastEnders' 30th anniversary special.
