Following my previous post about X-Men: Days of Future Past, it has been revealed that Cyclops (James Marsden) is seen wearing a modified version of the Oakley RadarLock in a short scene in the latest movie. Unfortunately, at this time there are no screen grabs available to show Cyclops wearing the frame (and I didn’t fancy popping the camera out in the middle of a packed cinema to get the shot either!).
This relationship between the X-Men franchise and Oakley stems back to 2000 when Cyclops was first featured wearing Oakley eye wear, equipped with Ruby-Quartz Lenses, to protect the environment from the powerful energy beam (or optic blast) that is emitted from his eyes.
X-Men (2000) – Customised Oakley Juliet
X2 (2003) – Oakley X-Metal Penny
X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) – Oakley X-Metal Penny
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – Oakley RadarLock
Now we have to wait until 2016 to see if Cyclops will make an appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, and if he does, what style of Oakley’s will he be wearing?
