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 agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
