With the news that Ben Hardy has officially been cast as Angel in X-Men: Apocalypse, we got a sneak peak at his brand new set of wings.
Comics fans will recognize these as the metal wings of Archangel. When his feather wings were destroyed, he made a deal with Apocalypse to serve as his Horseman of Death in exchange for these shiny versions.
When asked about the new menacing metal wings, director Bryan Singer told Empire Magazine:
“Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”
I’m stoked to see what direction the other characters will go in X-Men: Apocalypse when it’s released on May 27th, 2016.
