    The next x-men movie is scheduled for release May 2016. In it has 18 year old Tye Sheridan cast as a young Cyclops.

    Anybody hear anything about if Oakley will once again provide the shades for Cyclops?

    I found this pic and they look more like modified Wayfarers to me...

    70's era didn't have x-metals. In fact, Oakley sunglasses didn't even exist until mid 80's.

    Yes, that's why I said they look like Wayfarers, the Rayban model...

    This movie is supposed to take place in 1983. Frogskins came out in 1985. So yes, it'd be a slight anachronism, but a minor one, that money easily overlooks...

    But yes, it looks like Lux broke the Oakley tradition and went to another of their brands, Ray Ban...

    Based on that one pic.

    At 18 Scott was probably going through puberty and a hipster phase hit him at the same time.

    I guess that's the result of being raised an orphan - no dad to brainwash him to love and live Oaks; had to later discover them for himself... ;)
