Well, I think it's fair to say that none of us saw this coming! As you can see, Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox have today announced that 2016 will see the release of X-Men: Apocalypse. There's currently no word on whether the movie will focus on the original team of X-Men or the First Class bunch, but with Hugh Jackman committed to another solo Wolverine movie, it might just be a safe bet to say he WON'T be a part of it. Of course, stranger things have happened, and it may even be a spinoff featuring an entirely new cast of characters. We just don't know at this point! How do you guys feel about this news? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

Best news day in a long time.

Holy Shit! I wonder if it will be on First Class timeline, Present timeline or both again. And I hope Singer stays for that or Matthew Vaughn comes back, not Gavin Hood type again please.

Well there you go Marvel and WB, Fox just threw in Apocalypse before Thanos and Darkseid.

................................Is this a dream?
Alphadog - 12/5/2013, 1:37 PM
I was hoping that they would take their time and set this up instead of just going right at it.
ForeverPowerful - 12/5/2013, 1:37 PM
Holy god. Anything else this week?
Oxbow - 12/5/2013, 1:37 PM
Damn. call me Professor X, because I wrote Apocalypse as the villain for my oX-Men fan-fic...on this very site! That should be cool though, esepcially if we get more parallel universes and time-travelling. Age of Apocalypse, here we come!
Tyrus - 12/5/2013, 1:38 PM
Fox is trying to get a more visual villain like Ultron and Zod.
ALmazing - 12/5/2013, 1:38 PM
What!!!

Cap1 - 12/5/2013, 1:38 PM
Javier Bardem.
Tyrus - 12/5/2013, 1:38 PM
Lol who else notices that they didn't include 'Age of' for the title...

tron21full - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM

DanMcNice - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM
OMG!! Great news!!
jazzman - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM
good news
Enphlieuwince - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM
Outstanding news, but, you've got to blind if you don't think this premature annoucement is not another strategic jab from Stealing Thunder Singer.... His latest completed CBM is months from being released and he drops this bomb?
GuardianAngel - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM
OH


MY


GOD


!!!!

Who's Apocalypse? (I'm not too familiar with Marvel)
scoobyjas - 12/5/2013, 1:40 PM
I'm guessing they get to "fix" the timeline and when Wolverine wakes up in the future, he's in the the Age of Apocalypse!
Brainiac13 - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
Will this be set in the 70s or 80s? Because it will involve the new cast.

ekrolo2 - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
Let the bitching he stole another movies thunder begin.
harley2011 - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
Nice, FOX, doing it right. Thankfully Marvel/Disney will not get their hands on Magneto and Wolverine.
deamon - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
Yeess!!!
The Rock for Apocalypse, if not then Tony Todd.
JordanKing - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
The Golden Age of CBMs continue!
themidnightking - 12/5/2013, 1:41 PM
