For those worried that Danielle Moonstar and Sunspot won’t be their ethnicity, THR article stating this news added the following.

Fox is making serious efforts to find ethnically appropriate actors, conducting wide searches for a Native American to play Moonstar and a South American for Sunspot.

So as a fan of these characters I’m proud to see that Fox is making an effort to cast actual Native and South American actors for these roles. Finally, the film is set to release April 13, 2018. Like always sound off down below with your thoughts. Do you have any actors you want to see play this group of X-Men? Until next time, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
