Stars from the original X-Men trilogy including Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore are also on board to reprise their roles.

Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage will play one of the film's villains.

The movie, scheduled for release on July 18 next year, shows the original series stars as older versions of their characters in a dystopian future.
