Writer/director Bryan Singer officially announced he’s added three new members to the cast of the next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse.

They’ll be joining a cast that already includes Oscar Isaac as the main villain, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, James McAvoy as Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult as Beast.

Singer worked on the script along with Simon Kinberg, and 20th Century Fox is targeting a May 2016 theatrical release.

Tye Sheridan’s resume includes Last Man Standing, Joe, Mud, and The Tree of Life. Alexandra Shipp’s Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, Drumline: A New Beat, and Ray Donovan. And Sophie Turner is best known to millions of Game of Thrones fans as ‘Sansa Stark.’
