It really sucks that we can't get a Kinberg/Singer one-two punch with all these interviews. It's such a delight to see Singer's dynamic and elegant direction applied to great material again, and it would've been awesome to hear him talk some about it.

The script and story is magnificent.

So many plotholes averted in th Xfranchise.
Professor X could walk in the 1980s because he was still using the serum but Wolverine inspired him not to.
In the fixed timeline Jean Grey is still alive in the future because Xavier saw Wolverine's future and made sure to get all the Pheonix shit sorted out.

I really wouldn't have minded Bishop being sent back into the past but they would've really needed Forge to pull it off. That way we could've at least had Wolverine getting in on some action in the future scenes.

I always wonder why these interviewers/questioners hardly ever ask questions about costumes?? lol

Hopeful to get more of the "future X-Men" such as Bidhop, Blink, Sunspot, Colossus, Iceman etc in future films... Glad to hear Evan Peter is returning as Quicksilver in Apocalypse:)

Saw it today. I thought it was a very good movie, but have to disagree with those who say it's the best or 2nd best of all time. For those hardcore X-Fans out there, I'm sure they believe that. I found Mystique the most compelling character. I thought the future Sentinels were too powerful. The future battle scenes might have been better if they were powered down. I also don't quite get how their almost unstoppable adaptability would derive from Mystique genetics. There are a few other minor things that I might quibble about, but it is the best X-Film to date. 8/10 is my rating, but I won't put it up there with the Dark Knight, Barman Begins, Avengers, Spider-Man 2,Iron Man or CA:TWS.

@Liverpool4life: How are the Sentinels too powerful? How do you expect the future to get that bad, if the Sentinels are not capable of taking out well trained mutants? What would happen if Jean Grey was there as the Phoenix? They needed to be able to handle that kind of power, if they encountered it, and we know they did considering some of the mutants that are out there.

Second, Bishop is shown killing Sentinels with 1 shot. I repeat, ONE SHOT, when Blink opens a portal for him. The reason the Sentinels couldn't be beat wasn't because they could adapt, but because they could adapt AND there were hundreds/thousands of them.

Even Batman can't beat 100 Jokers.
