[Movies] Bryan Singer Talks About How X-Men: Days of Future Past Sets Up X-Men: Apocalypse
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.11.2014

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Bryan Singer and producer/writer Simon Kinberg spoke about X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be released on May 27, 2016. The film is being developed with X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.

Singer said that the film will "somewhat" be based on the 1990 storyline Age of Apocalypse, which features an alternate universe in which the ancient villain Apocalypse has taken over the world.

Singer said: "[The movie] won't necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I'm playing with."

Kinberg added: "From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there'll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply."

When asked if Days of Future Past will set up the next movie, Singer replied: "You won't feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we'll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You're dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?"

The film will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult from deals they signed for First Class. Singer also said he's interested in bringing in mutants like Gambit and Nightcrawler. He added: "I'm excited because I want to start introducing familiar characters at different ages and also explore the 80s."
