One of the bright spots in this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse was Tye Sheridan, whose turn as the young, attitude-heavy Scott Summers (a.k.a. Cyclops) suggested a bright future for the series going forward. And in an exclusive new deleted scene, we get to see the future X-Men team leader try on his optic blast-regulating shades for the first time.
Set to be included on X-Men: Apocalypse’s upcoming home video release, the above scene finds Nicholas Hoult’s hairy genius Beast presenting Summers with a replacement for his ruby-red sunglasses: a metallic visor that not only prevents his eye beams from destroying everyone and everything around him, but actually regulates the intensity of their emission. Summers initially finds his new headgear a bit unsightly, yet its handy function quickly wins out over its form — even if it does make the X-Men rookie worry that his compatriots will start calling him “Cyclops.”
Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Oscar Isaac as the blue-skinned harbinger of doom Apocalypse, X-Men: Apocalypse delivers the larger-than-life mutant goods while also hinting at better things to come courtesy of young stars like Sheridan, who’ll hopefully get a far more prominent role in future X-Men movies. The film is currently available on Digital HD, and debuts on Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD Oct. 4.
