With X-Men Apocalypse coming out next year, the actors are either getting back into their characters or learning how to get into certain characters. This is definitely true with actor Tye Sheridan who will be playing Scott Summers AKA Cyclops in the upcoming film. In a brief interview here’s what he had to say about playing the character:
“Playing Cyclops has forced me to use everything I’ve learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I’ve met a lot of my characters – in these sort of young life transitions where they’re struggling to figure things out about themselves. He’s now learning about being a mutant and trying to handle his superhero powers. The arc for the character is really cool for me – it’s not like I’m just stepping into it and I’m a superhero and it’s cool and all that with the suit. You kind of see the progression of this character – where he comes from, what he has to overcome and where he goes at the end of the film. It’s a great arc.”
It seems like he knows what’s he’s doing and what’s expected of the character. Over all I think he’ll do well playing Cyclops. Let me know your opinions on the matter.
