Bleeding Cool claims to have unearthed some information about X-Men: Apocalypse, and it's extremely interesting to say the least! Basically, they believe that X-Men: Days of Future Past will lead directly into X-Men: Apocalypse, with "a clear narrative thread that will string the two pictures together, and the character of Apocalypse is a good part of how this will work." Several members of the cast are wanted for the movie, meaning it would include characters from the past and present/future timelines. We now know that time travel is NOT involved as such in Days of Future Past as Michael Fassbender recently confirmed that he never comes face to face with Ian McKellen's version of Magneto, so it's unclear how this would work exactly. Either way, it's said to be "a direct continuation, a next chapter that picks up the status quo at the end of Days and carries on developing it." New characters will obviously be featured, while it's thought that this is an idea which has been considered by Bryan Singer for a while now.

I don't understand this, is it a follow on with 60's Xavier and Magneto or current storyline?
JordanKing - 12/6/2013, 5:58 AM
@mil05 The X-Men timeline is pretty straight forward to follow, take a look for yourself:



See, what's the issue?

That's interesting, sure some of the cast are signed on, especially if this has actually been planned for a while...looking forward to seeing how they handle DOFP!

This has been a pretty big week for cbm news; been a plethora of DC news, WW casting, Barry Allen on Flash, TASM2 trailer, X-Men: Apocalypse announced...awesome time to be a comic fan
TopCat89 - 12/6/2013, 5:59 AM
DOFP Mid or After credits shot!!!!!!!!!
JoeMomma29 - 12/6/2013, 6:01 AM
I am dreading this for some reason!
Brainiac13 - 12/6/2013, 6:02 AM
@PantherX

Lol!
Bl00dwerK - 12/6/2013, 6:03 AM
Reboot, please...
FreedomFreeLife - 12/6/2013, 6:04 AM
So, Wolverine [frick]s up past and now thanks to Wolverine FUTURE IS EVEN DARKER.
GOOD JOB WOLVERINE ONCE AGAIN :)

Just take my $
SpiderParker - 12/6/2013, 6:05 AM
Most likely, past characters will have to deal with Mr. Sinister to avoid the future with Apocalypse.
MexicanSuperman - 12/6/2013, 6:05 AM
I hope X-Force comes out in 2015, so that can tie into X-Men Apocalypse. Maybe the ending of Days of Futures Past will end like Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon, with Apocalypse controlling the world after the X-Men changed the past.
charlie2094 - 12/6/2013, 6:06 AM
@Soto

Definitely! Still got the finale for Arrow which will surely have some big stuff, sure we'll get a bit more official Batman vs Superman news and there'll be plenty more...it's awesome
ThePowerCosmic - 12/6/2013, 6:08 AM
Yes bring in Sinister too!!! At some point.
Nubase - 12/6/2013, 6:15 AM
DOFP will correct many many things, lets not judge till it comes out
Nomis - 12/6/2013, 6:16 AM
@ PantherX - LOL!!!
Pasto - 12/6/2013, 6:18 AM
This is just 'wow'. What....the hell is Fox doing? Is their head that far up their asses? Marvel must have scared the shit out of them with The Avengers.

@PantherX LMBO
MightyZeus - 12/6/2013, 6:19 AM
I'm having my doubts about this film for some reason.

Please have Matthew Vaughn direct this.
Noobster - 12/6/2013, 6:20 AM
@pantherx yeah it's not strictly cause and effect , it's more like.. A big ball of ... Wibbly wobbly , timey wimey... Stuff.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:21 AM
Xmen is incredibly confusing in the comics anyways. Why do people cry about there precious timelines? These aren't the comics word for word.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:21 AM
Vin Diesel for Apocolypse.
SuperCat - 12/6/2013, 6:22 AM
Yeah, the timeline is confusing. Still looking forward to this though.
WruceBayne - 12/6/2013, 6:22 AM
Xmen 1st class didn't have an after credits scene, so I don't think there were plans for Xmen after 1st class. I think it was either a make it or break it for Fox. Apocalypse should be cool though, especially if they use his Horsemen.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:22 AM
I'll be stoked if i get to see Archangel on big screen. I want to see him shred someone with those razor feathers!
Pasto - 12/6/2013, 6:23 AM
When I first heard 'Apocalypse' I thought: "Present day X-Men going up against Apocalypse, they conquer in fighting him, then X-Force is created." Now we have 80's X-Men and the garbage pale cousin in the mix. What are you DOING FOX!?!?!?!?
gambgel - 12/6/2013, 6:24 AM
this whole Apocalypse thing should be like a whole new trilogy, with each movie building the story.

Mostly taking into account the complexity of the saga and all the characters involved in both the comics saga and the franchise.

Age of Apocalypse trilogy, Fox!

With Cyclops, Archangel, Gambit and Bishop having big roles, and the rest of the x-men having solid roles too.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:24 AM
4horsemen, Apocolypse, and Mr.Sinister vs the Xmen. That could be about as Epic as it gets right there! Also, i hope at some point we get a good Juggernaut.
Hitboyj - 12/6/2013, 6:25 AM
Ya the more the better

And long live Madiba

redrobin1986 - 12/6/2013, 6:25 AM
This would be a perfect movie to bring back Jean & Scott, and intro Nathan/Cable and then it could lead in to the X-Force movie that is currently i being written
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:25 AM
What are you doing fox!!!(sarcasm). Stop whining you babies!
stunpals - 12/6/2013, 6:26 AM
I hate everything about this movie!

j/k - I haven't seen it yet.
Pasto - 12/6/2013, 6:26 AM
Am I confused?


Yeah, I'm confused.

DrRockit13 - 12/6/2013, 6:27 AM
They say days of Future Past doesn't have time travel, but that doesn't mean Apocalypse will not. Have DoFP lead into Apocalypse with Cable coming back in time to warn them that they just changed things for the worse.
NightmareB4 - 12/6/2013, 6:27 AM
Cyclops, that is all.
DarkKnight2010 - 12/6/2013, 6:27 AM
I just thought of something. If they continue with storyline from all other xmen, this is going to suck. Bc they killed and cured everybody in FREAKING XMEN 3! No cyclops. Are you kidding me
fortycals - 12/6/2013, 6:28 AM
My wish list
2016
xmen apocalypse
xforce
2017
ff2:annihilus
deadpool
2018
Xmen/ff: Onslaught
Pasto - 12/6/2013, 6:28 AM
@namor Whining is me saying that the film will be stupid without seeing anything. Worried is me being concerned that Fox has no clue what so ever with how to handle it's properties. Get your shit together Namor.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:28 AM
I doubt they'll do anything Doom in a Xmen film.
Namor - 12/6/2013, 6:29 AM
I'm also still holding out hope i get to see my girl Boom Boom either in Xforce or Xmen Apocolypse. Tabitha is freaking awesome.
