Entertainment Weekly broke the news and added that she will be joining Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm, who will also be reintroduced into the franchise.
Apocalypse writer Simon Kinberg said she will have a significant role in the film.

Kinberg also teased a potential Professor X plot.
“It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class
and would like to mine more in this one.”
At present details about the movies plot are being kept under wraps, but Kinberg has shared that the movie will mark a close to the main character arcs from ‘X-Men: First Class’.
“This movie is the completion of the first arcs of Charles, Eric, Raven, and Hank, who are essentially our main characters,” he explains.”They’re such young actors and young characters, so there’s a lot more story to tell. But as a first phase of their lives, there is this feeling of closure by the end of the movie.”‘X-Men: Apocalypse’
will be released on May 27, 2016.
