X-Men: Apocalypse Writer Reveals Timeframe of the Film
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.15.2014

We've known for a little while that X-Men: Apocalypse will take place sometime during the 1980s, but that's a big era and there is a lot that went on during the tumultous decade. Now, writer Simon Kinberg (who is also producing the film) has revealed the specific year that the film will be set during.

Kinberg appeared on The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith for a lengthy interview and during the podcast he revealed that the film will be set during 1983. 1983 saw such events the official beginning of the internet, the near-meltdown of the Kursk nuclear power plant in Russia, a near-nuclear war that was averted when a Soviet military officer correctly identified a warning of attack by U.S. missiles as a false alarm and more.

While no one is confirmed yet, it is expected that James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence and Evan Peters will all reprise their roles. Previous comments by Kinberg and others involved with the production have suggested that younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm will appear, as well as Gambit (to possibly be played by Channing Tatum). The film releases on May 27th, 2016.
