You've seen the very blue face of new X-Men villain Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac). Now stare into the younger mugs of the recast class of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Set 20 years before 2000's "X-Men" movie, "X-Men: Apocalypse" has recast many mutant favorites. Gaze upon the young faces of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Nightcrawler in our gallery of the brand-new class of mutants. 

"X-Men: Apocalypse" is set in the 1980s, which leaves the door way open for some truly amazing outfits and hair. And even though the new movie is teeming with new faces, many X-Men alumni will be returning as well. Michael Fassbender will reprise his role as Magneto/Erik Lehnsherr, as will James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier. Also along for the new movie are  Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and many more familiar mutant faces. 

But it's the new class that's getting the most hype. This younger re-cast group of actors are portraying the original band of mutants we met in the Fox franchise years ago. Alexandra Shipp is the wonderfully mohawked Storm, Sophie Turner of "Game of Thrones" fame is Jean Grey, Ben Hardy is Angel, Tye Sheridan plays Cyclops, Olivia Munn from "Newsroom" is Psylocke and Lana Condor will play the plasma-blasting Jubilee. 

Fox has just released a whole gallery of high-resolution snaps of the new class. So get a good look at the baby face of Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), who will later grow up and look a lot more like Alan Cumming (who played the blue teleporting mutant in 2003).
