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.
