Bryan Singer Debunks Worrying X-MEN Rumor; "Apocalypse Is Not An Alien"

Perhaps in an effort to put the minds of worried comic book fans everywhere at ease, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to briefly debunk recent reports which made it sound as if the titular villain of X-Men: Apocalypse would be alien in origin...

Last week, a report surfaced claiming that the after-credits scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past would feature - stop reading now if you don't want to know - an "alien form" crashing to Earth from the night's sky, seemingly possessing Magneto in the process. Since then, worried fans have been wondering whether this means that the time travelling mutant would be alien in origin, but X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to kill that sort of speculation before it can even get properly started. Does this also mean the description is false? Stay tuned...

Michael Biehn as Cable. Shamone.

Phew...Man, that's a load of my mind. For a minute I was worried there.

Now I'm Sure everything will work out just fine for this movie like all the previous X-men movies

There's a reason I'm usually aloof.

Thank god!!! Can't wait now!

Not an X-Men fan so I don't know. Aren't stories with Apocalype like their best stories. Does anyone have a problem with them just tossing Apocalypse in this universe so soon?
ndwwrestler2 - 12/9/2013, 1:02 PM
@Taydee They've had 5 or 6 movies so far. I wouldn't call this "soon".
IM53 - 12/9/2013, 1:03 PM
NightCrwaler or gtfo. [frick] Cyclops :D
ndwwrestler2 - 12/9/2013, 1:03 PM
@nomis I would argue with you. But even though I believe Singer's X Men movies are really good movies, I can understand why fans would be upset with them.
TayDee - 12/9/2013, 1:03 PM

Still. This just seems to soon imo. At least Thanos is going to have 2 teases before he comes full fledge.
AlexanderLykins - 12/9/2013, 1:04 PM
Still not satisfied. No merging with Magneto. Announce that Singer!
SonofNun - 12/9/2013, 1:04 PM
so what is he? i thought he was from another realm?
Ocelot - 12/9/2013, 1:05 PM
It never said he was an "alien" in the first place, it said he looked like he had an "alien form" because you know Apocalypse doesn't resemble your usual "mutant" and in fact does look like an "alien".
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 1:05 PM
There ppl, y'all feel happy now!?!

I told y'all that end credit wasn't true
Scorpion8125 - 12/9/2013, 1:05 PM

Bring back Cyclops and Jean Grey you sissy hack.

Fabius - 12/9/2013, 1:05 PM
@golden. Yep.thanks for say it. Now it s more clear. Bcause just don t really know enough about this villain. Hope it will be strong enough for great battle against the x men.

When the source says "possessing Magneto", is it possible that they mean Apocalypse makes him into one of his four horsemen? Plus, in the comics, doesn't Apocalypse (who is from ancient Egypt) arrive in the present through the use of alien technology stolen from Kang The Conqueror or something?
SpiderParker - 12/9/2013, 1:05 PM
He could have just said the whole description was fake but he didn't. He just said Apocalypse wont be a alien so....
Goran - 12/9/2013, 1:06 PM
Isn't it quite obvious, that during the events of "Days of future past" some kind of time hole will be created, thus allowing Apocalypse to flee ancient Egypt and coming to out time...!?

Source = fake

Cable, Cyclops, Gambit and Archangel HAVE to fight Apocalypse.

If this doesnt happen....... well, I really dont believe this wont happen.

2016. X-Men: Apocalypse

2018: X-Men: Rise and Fall of Apocalypse.

or whatever they wanna call them. But we need TWO PARTS of this epic saga
jlabatman - 12/9/2013, 1:10 PM
wasn't too worried about that!
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 1:11 PM
I don't think so
They have been mentioning the fantastic four will be teaming up with the xmen in the future
Interestein - 12/9/2013, 1:11 PM
Cable, Deadpool, Cyclops, Jubilee, and Archangel or GTFO
Interestein - 12/9/2013, 1:12 PM
McNyagano - 12/9/2013, 1:14 PM
Thank God. It's interesting that he doesn't say the Magneto part is false or if the crash landing part is false too. mmmmmmm
Nomis - 12/9/2013, 1:15 PM
@ ndwwrestler2 - My problem with the "X-Men" movies have always been that Bryan Singer went too far from the source material (the comics) in his portrayal of the characters and has confuse the chronology so much that they are they are the X-Men in NAME ONLY and it's impossible to repair at this point.
VisionaryNPA - 12/9/2013, 1:16 PM
Really not looking forward to him merging with Magneto. He needs to announce that shit. no Singer/writer, stahp et.
MercwithMouth - 12/9/2013, 1:16 PM
This movie will be badass! Singer will do Apoc justice. And @scorpion, how is Singer a hack? He didn't kill Cyclops or Jean!!!
fortycals - 12/9/2013, 1:17 PM
Told you. Now he just needs to clarification on the whole Merging thing. Like I said people took a second hand description, and took every word of it out of context. I said from the beginning that what might be seen as Merging could be the making of a horseman. I don't know about you but magneto as a horseman would own, imo.
TheDemonsHead - 12/9/2013, 1:17 PM
I'm happy I'm not heavily invested in the XMEN universe as all of yall are so I'm not butthurt and can just enjoy the story for what it is...

Night crawler returning would be cool, especially if gets some duel swords :-)

Jean and Scott should make a comeback though since they are the only ones who haven't lol

and I love Wolverine
ATrueHero1987 - 12/9/2013, 1:17 PM
Like I said, I think FOX is trying hard to get a Thanos like character on the big screen before Thanos
MercwithMouth - 12/9/2013, 1:18 PM
I want to see Mags, Wolvie, Angel and Cable be the Horsemen. That would kick ass.
DEVLIN712 - 12/9/2013, 1:20 PM
Is there an announced release date for DoFP yet?
TheRationalNerd - 12/9/2013, 1:22 PM
I think it's time we got young...


All on film together! :)

I'm already anticipated for the film after Apocalypse! Hope it is a two parter though. I have a feeling that X4 and X5 are DOFP and AOA. Singers pitched ideas for these films very long ago after The Last Stand was released.
fortycals - 12/9/2013, 1:22 PM
And Truthfully I don't care if they do merge, as long as it's apoc alone in the final showdown versus everyone. He never just shows up and wreck shop, he uses flunkies to do his dirty work.
wcwpoet - 12/9/2013, 1:23 PM
Happy to hear that, but how bout you bring Cyclops back.
fortycals - 12/9/2013, 1:25 PM
His ship doesn't come from kang, it comes from the celestials. I wonder if they can actually use that name. I guess we will find out when gotg comes out. Let see if they use a celestial head as a base.
RetroFit - 12/9/2013, 1:25 PM
"Does anyone have a problem with them just tossing Apocalypse in this universe so soon?"

Soon? When this comes out it will be after 16 years of movies? That's soon to you?

fortycals - 12/9/2013, 1:25 PM
Even though him and kang have beefed on occasion.
