A recent leak from a sometimes-reliable MCU scooper claims to reveal Disney's plans for a new X-Men team in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It won't happen for years, but here's a look at the alleged new X-Men and the perfect actor for each new Marvel role.

Cyclops will return to lead the X-Men.

Liam Hemsworth is a perfect fit to play Cyclops, while following in his brother Chris' MCU footsteps.

In Westworld, Evan Rachel Wood proved she can handle a lead role in a sci-fi epic. All she needs to play Jean Grey is the red hair.

The MCU's storm will hail from Wakanda, unlike the character in previous X-Men movies.

DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It) has the acting talent and the intensity to pull off the best live-action Storm so far.

Everyone's favorite teleporter, Nightcrawler, will apparently join the MCU.

Lakeith Stanfield might love the Joker, but he's a perfect fit for the blue-skinned mutant Nightcrawler.

Havok could be on the team too.

Another Hemsworth? Who better than Luke Hemsworth to play Havoc, brother to Cyclops/Liam Hemsworth.

Mackenyu Arata already has sci-fi experience in Pacific Rim and the Kamen Rider movies. So let's cast him as Sunfire.

Finally, Thunderbird, An Apache Native American with superhuman athletic ability will reportedly join the X-Men.

You might recognize Justin Rain from Fear of the Walking Dead. Could this Canadian First Nations actor take on the role of Thunderbird?
