“Guess the secret’s out.”
Filmmaker Bryan Singer also posted a photo of Shipp, alongside X-Men: Apocalypse co-star Sophie Turner, on Instagram with short hair. While the shaved head could help Shipp with a wig in the superhero film, fans are also speculating that Storm will have a mohawk in the movie, which is set during the 1980s.
The first time Storm was seen with a mohawk was in 1983’s Uncanny X-Men #173, which lines up within the same timeframe of X-Men: Apocalypse.
Singer and company are currently filming X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal, with a planned release in theaters on May 27, 2016. Along with Shipp and Turner, the Fox and Marvel superhero sequel stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Rose Byrne, Oscar Isaac and Olivia Munn.
