Since Bryan Singer announced X-Men: Apocalypse via Twitter late last year, there have been several rumors surrounding the Days of Future Past follow-up. However, besides the fact that Apocalypse won't just be an alien in the 2016 adaptation, there has been nothing really concrete; not even the credible reports that Singer is returning to direct. “I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it,” he told Entertainment Weekly recently. “I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.” Basically, he's directing.

The most persistent rumor for X-Men: Apocalypse is that it will be set up in the final moments of Days of Future Past, but Bryan Singer suggests that, too, isn't final. “I’m still deciding that,” he says. “Something that happens in this movie causes what’s going to happen in that movie.” Without revealing any major plot points, Singer does hint that Apocalypse will “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.”



After X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014, X-Men: Apocalypse will hit on May 26, 2016

BANEofExistence - 1/7/2014, 2:24 PM
Cool! So we will get Magneto, Mystique, Toad, Quicksilver, Xavier, Beast

and hopefully Cyclops, Wolverine, Sabretooth, Gambit, Storm, Iceman and Angel?

So Singer and crew are putting the cart before the horse?

This sounds fricking great. XMDOFP will be the cbm of this year.

@themidnightking, how?

I didn't expect a franchise like this to go back to the roots of the mutants. Days of Future Past looks like a good look, and hopefully it and this WILL a good look.

Sounds good to me, Days of Future Past is my most anticipated cbm this year. Spidey 2,
Cap 2, and Robocop look great too.
Superior - 1/7/2014, 2:29 PM
I wonder if they'll go as far back to The Celestials.
Jollem - 1/7/2014, 2:31 PM

I hope X-Force and/or X-Factor is next after Apocalypse completes this prequel trilogy.

@mexicansuperman I'm still worried about how they can pull off DOFP without it collapsing on itself
MrCBM56 - 1/7/2014, 2:38 PM
[frick] yeah! Sounds good. Can't believe were getting Apocalypse!!
ALegendaryPanda - 1/7/2014, 2:40 PM

How about finishing DOFP and making it the best movie you can first Singer.
Praetorian - 1/7/2014, 2:53 PM
Despite First Class and the Wolverine being totally badass and me being sure that Days of Future Past will blow doors on everyone I wish Marvel had the rights. Sam reason I want the FF rights to be transferred away from FOX in a couple months

Berserk

Pretty sure the Celestials are at Marvel Studios. Who knows, they might be one of the grey areas.
DrDoom - 1/7/2014, 2:57 PM
How about you make a good movie this decade before thinking you're all that, Singer?
HurricaneXavier - 1/7/2014, 2:58 PM
Glad to see hes giving all his attention to DOFP... Oh wait.
