Bryan Singer is returning to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, his fourth X-Men movie, which will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, with Simon Kinberg producing once again. The film will be released on May 27th 2016.
Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender are arguably two of the most famous actors on the planet these days following numerous Academy awards and nominations for the pair. Within an examination of Lawrence's upcoming film roles, The Hollywood Reporter states that a source has revealed to them that the Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Apocalypse will capatlise on the sucess of the two stars. Namely, Singer will be putting the romatic relationship between Magneto and Mystique 'front and center.' Interesting, considering that Magneto and Mystique didn't exactly seem to be on the path to a whirlwind romance in Days of Future Past. 20th Century Fox are also unwilling to move the film's start date so Lawrence can work on Joy, an upcoming film from Lawrence's frequent collaborater, David O. Russel (American Hustle). Would you like to see more Fassbender and Lawrence, or would you like other characters to have more screentime, share your thoughts below.
