UPDATE: More X-MEN Confirmed For APOCALYPSE + First Reactions To DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
As the first impressions of the first X-Men: Days of Future Past screening surface via Twitter, director Bryan Singer seemingly confirms young iterations of 3 more mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse
"My next goal is how did the X-Men come together?" Bryan Singer told SciFi Now of his direction for X-Men: Apocalypse, the 2016 follow-up to the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. "That story hasn't been told yet, so [Days of Future Past] is the inbetweenquel," laughs Singer. "It's in between the birth of that relationship with Charles and Erik and the formation of the X-Men." So, does this mean Apocalypse is in the right time zone to revisist and recast iconic original characters Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm? "Yeah, exactly," Singer confirms. "In a way, it feels like from this point forward we can do whatever we wants," says producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg, "but we'll be moving forward with some of the actors from the First Class/Days of Future Past cast, so there's stuff we've done in these last couple of movies that we'll definitely continue doing for them, at least in Apocalypse, if not more movies going forward." Meanwhile, the first press screening of X-Men: Days of Future Past was held tonight, and some lucky viewers have already taken to Twitter and, so far, praised the sequel. What do you think?
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
