Bryan Singer Chats Direction of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Fanboys everywhere were delighted last month when Bryan Singer tweeted out that an "X-Men: Apocalypse" film would be coming in 2016. At this time, Singer is producing and co-writing the film and is still in negotiations to direct. He has expressed his interest in directing however and it is believed the deal will be locked in in the end.

Other than of course boasting mega-villain Apocalypse, we now have an idea as to what the film will be about. In a recent interview, Singer stated, "It will also address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that’s always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers."

"X-Men: Apolcaypse" will serve as a sequel to "X-Men: Days of Future Past". We aren't sure at this time if the main character will be a small or large part and if the storyline will follow "The Age of Apocalypse" comic.

On whether he would include a teaser in that film, Singer stated, "I’m still deciding. Something that happens in this movie causes what’s going to happen in that movie."

No matter how the next film shakes out, it's clear that Singer and team had a clear vision some time ago about where they wanted this film series to go. That in itself, certainly instills some faith in fellow X-Men addicts like myself.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
