Bryan Singer And Simon Kinberg Reveal More Details About X-MEN: APOCALYPSE
X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer and writer/producer Simon Kinberg talk more about 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse, teasing "disaster movie imagery", links to the Age of Apocalypse comic book, and which mutants we should expect to see in the 1980s setting...
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Bryan Singer revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse (which is being developed by him, Simon Kinberg and X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty) will be "somewhat" based on the classic Age of Apocalypse comic book from the 90s, but added that it won't be taking place in an alternate universe. "[The movie] won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with." Kinberg adds, "From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply."
As for how X-Men: Days of Future Past will link to X-Men: Apocalypse, Singer revealed: "You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You’re dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?" The director went on to confirm that James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult will all be back, but reiterated that he want to also introduce Gambit and Nightcrawler to the 80s set sequel. "I’m excited because I want to start introducing familiar characters at different ages and also explore the ‘80s." How do you guys feel about these comments?
