X-MEN: APOCALYPSE - More On 'Four Horsemen' From Simon Kinberg
X-Men: Days of Future Past after credits scene gave a tease of Apocalypse and his 'Four Horsemen' and now screenwriter Simon Kinberg discusses what we can expect in the next film.
While many of us were incredibly excited to see Apocalpse bulding a giant pyramid in Egypt for the X-Men: Days of Future Past post credits scene, we were equally excited to see the 'Four Horsemen' being teased off in the distance. By the time X-Men: Apocalpse lands in theaters Apocalpse and his 'Four Horsemen' will look much different - something closer to the comic book versions. Screenwriter Simon Kinberg was asked during Comic-Con about the identities of Apocalpse's brainwashed, super-powered henchmen.
Simon Kinber: I cannot answer your question, but they are ones we have seen before if you have read the comics. I cannot answer that. I know the answer to it, but we are still in the formal stages of figuring that out. But in truth, like everything you are developing a TV show or a movie, it could change. So I wouldn’t want to tell you one thing, and then six months from now you read somebody getting cast, oh because some focus group told them that this character was no good and it really is things change. Especially in Days of Future Past, the Quicksilver character was a young Juggernaut. When Bryan [Singer] came on, he thought the Juggeranut has already been exploited, and he didn’t think it was fresh enough. We went down the list of who is another mutant that could help Magneto escape in that sequence that could be a new visual, and he got excited about Quicksilver, because he saw this high speed photography that he wanted to use, and that became the kitchen sequence. That’s high speed photography is based on youtube clips that Bryan had seen. You just may never know, and that was a late game decision to cast young Juggernaut. There will be Four Horsemen I can tell you that.
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. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future.
X-Men: Days Of Future Past will be directed by Bryan Singer ("Usual Suspects"). The cast includes: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Omar Sy, Fan Bingbing, Evan Jonigkeit, Adan Canto and Josh Helman. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is now playing at your local theater.
