Simon Kinberg Discusses the Story of X-Men: Apocalypse Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.08.2014
“There’s a massive scope and scale to telling that story.”
SuperHeroHype recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past writer and producer Simon Kinberg at the New York press junket this week about the future of franchise and X-Men: Apocalypse. The next sequel is due out on May 27, 2016.
Kinberg stated on the film:
"We want to tell the Apocalypse story and there's massive scale and scope to telling that story. There's going to be set pieces that I suspect are going to be bigger than anything we've ever done in an X-Men movie before and he's a great character. The biggest and funnest challenge of the Apocalypse movie to me is his character. How do you create a new villain for the X-Men world that is as good as any villain that's come before, is compelling philosophically as Magneto, not just in his physical powers, but in his philosophical depth. 'Apocalypse' is going to be a fun movie to write and make."
