Earlier today, 20th Century Fox unveiled the first official look at Kodi Smit-McPhee has the new version of Nightcrawler, but now he has been joined in the light by a few of the other new castmembers in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. This is because some new set photos from the film have leaked online, giving us our debut peek at Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Lana Condor as Jubilee (as well as extra angles on the new Nightcrawler).

These two images were posted online by Twitter user @FrancescaY, who evidently lives in the area where X-Men: Apocalypse is currently shooting (and as you may be able to tell from her caption, it seems that her mom was the one that snapped the photos). Obviously it's hard to glean any kind of plot information from the images, but they definitely do give us an interesting peek at what the movie is doing with the characters. For starters, it definitely looks like Nightcrawler is wearing Michael Jackson's red jacket from the "Thriller" video, but that's only the tip of the iceberg.
On the far right of the first photo is our first look at Tye Sheridan's young version of Cyclops - stepping in for James Marsden, who played the character in the original X-Men trilogy as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past. Certainly the most notable part of his costume here is his eyewear, which appears to be rather standard blue sunglasses rather than the character's classic visor. This makes sense given that it doesn't appear that he's heading into battle in this scene, but hopefully X-Men: Apocalypse will feature a sequence with the character in his most famous gear (maybe Nicholas Hoult's Beast can build it for him).
Next up, let's take a look at Jubilee - who actually looks like she's wearing a costume straight from the comics. After all, the first shot reveals that Lana Condor is sporting a pair of pink sunglasses on top of her head, and the second shot has her clearly wearing a yellow leather jacket. It's without question the outfit she is best known for wearing, and it looks like X-Men: Apocalypse is paying tribute to that.
Of the four actors featured in the shot, the reveal of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey is perhaps the least exciting - but that's not really anyone's fault. A large plant blocks our view of her costume in both shots - though it looks like she might be wearing some kind of blue pant suit. At least her red hair looks perfect.
Hopefully it won't be too much longer until we get official first looks at these X-Men: Apocalypse characters, but for now, what do you think?
