Brian singer just released some more concept art, for his up-coming X-Men Apocalypse, featuring Warren Worthington a.k.a. Angel.
From the image Angel seems to be in a situation where he is manipulated into being a kind of circus freak show act, probably unaware that there are other mutants out there. It looks like this could be an almost torturous lifestyle for him to live, with him likely thinking that that is all he’s good for. This scenario would easily set up the character becoming the Angel of Death.
If you don’t already know, Angel of Death is one of Apocalypse’s four Horsemen i.e. those guys in the post credits of Days of Future Past. The titular villain is more or less immortal, and so he needs to alternate his crew of Horsemen accordingly. Generally the Horsemen he recruits weren’t bad people to begin with, rather they were merely going through a hard time when Apocalypse appears and offers them an attractive alternative to their reality.
Ben Hardy is currently attached to the project in an unknown role, which has lead may to suspect (including this guy) that he is playing the part of Warren Worthington. He certainly looks the part.
So do you think they’re going with the Angel of Death arc, or will he just be a supporting member of the X-Men?
