Simon Kinberg Explains X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST's After-Credits Scene

Like so many other Marvel movies, Bryan Singer's superb X-Men: Days of Future Past features an after-credits scene which teased what's to come. Simon Kinberg talks about the significance of it here, but if you haven't seen the movie, be warned that there are major spoilers ahead...

X-Men: Days of Future Past ends with a flashback to Ancient Egyptian times as we see a young boy building the pyramids with his mutant powers. His worshippers are all chanting "En Sabah Nur," and four horsemen look on in the background. Does this mean that the Apocalypse in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse will be a child? Nope. "The post-credit sequence is a tease into what will be the Apocalypse movie. Now the Apocalypse you see – that young boy – may not be the actor who plays the character in our movie," Kinberg explains in the video interview with IGN Movies above. "It’s a deep back story glimpse into the character, but our movie doesn’t take place in ancient Egypt and will likely not star a young boy Apocalypse." What did you guys think of the X-Men: Days of Future Past after-credits scene? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

X-Men: Days of Future Past was boss! Watching it at least 2 more times.
DEVLIN712 - 5/23/2014, 3:58 AM
I watched it last night, it was so good I'm going again tonight!
charlie2094 - 5/23/2014, 4:00 AM
Didn't stay to watch it, but saw it online...looked great! Was obviously the young version of Apocalypse, so the final will no doubt come later...

Such a great film! Actually excited about the X:Men franchise again, been a while!

WTF! With 1h left of the movie I really had to pee but went rambo-mode and held it, when the movie was over I literally ran to the WC and missed the after-creditc scene. [frick]!

Such a [frick]ing epic film. I'm still in awe. So fantastic. 10/10. My favorite CBM this year, beating TWS in a close one.

Seriously, great film.
Brainiac13 - 5/23/2014, 4:06 AM

Love the Gifs. :)
MrCBM56 - 5/23/2014, 4:06 AM
All the haters, naysayers, or whatever are seriously eating crow. Especially you Remy.
MrCBM56 - 5/23/2014, 4:07 AM
QUICKSILVER FTW!!! Fantastic scene. Better then N-Crawler White House infiltration.

Singer did it. I applaud him.
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:13 AM
They HAVE to get a pretty great actor him.
A la James Spader as Ultron.
silverdog - 5/23/2014, 4:13 AM
Meh.... I'll take thanos any day over singer's lame "twink-pocalypse" looking like the effeminate space pharaoh from stargate...
KingOnslaught - 5/23/2014, 4:14 AM
If people don't remember it was a sign of royalty to look feminine in in ancient Egypt so that's why i assume he looks like a chick because that was the first the that popped in my head when i seen him
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/23/2014, 4:14 AM
LOL wheres's Zauri? Didn't he say this would be the "Batman and Robin" of the X-men franchise?

LOL what an Ass-munch!
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/23/2014, 4:15 AM
He looked like a chick because he was a pubescent teenager wearing make-up that looked shiny under the sun. That's all.
MrCBM56 - 5/23/2014, 4:16 AM
@GetsugaTensho LMAO!! He even said the movie looked like a "made-for-TV" film -.-
AntMan - 5/23/2014, 4:18 AM
I'll take Singer's badass young En Sabah Nur being worshiped as a god and effortlessly building a pyramid over Thanos smiling back at the camera any day of the week.
AntMan - 5/23/2014, 4:18 AM
The Thanos Mid-Credit scene was still great though.
Emjeed - 5/23/2014, 4:19 AM
Dude I'm still reeling from all the epicness and my emotions have not recovered yet

I thought the after credits scene was ok. Much like the Baron Von Strucker after credits scene in TWS, it felt a bit too out of place with the rest of the movie.

The movie was amazing though. Dear god! I hope they release a director's cut or something cause I wanted more!
MrCBM56 - 5/23/2014, 4:20 AM
The last 30 minutes were so emotional for me, I had to fight back the tears.
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:21 AM
I've watched the leaked scene and oh my, young Apocalypse looks exactly like Andrej Pejic

CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:24 AM
I just love how they tie the X Men into big world events, it makes the universe that more believable.
FC - Cuban missile crisis
DOFP - Kennedy assassination
Apocalypse - the building of the pyramids
AntMan - 5/23/2014, 4:26 AM
I agree CherryBomb. I think it's great how they tie how they tie the X-Men into real world events.
ManDeth - 5/23/2014, 4:28 AM
Singer had to sneak a young boy in the film somehow.
SuperCat - 5/23/2014, 4:36 AM
I thought it was a girl as well. Maybe Singer was going for an androgynous look for the character.
Kurne - 5/23/2014, 4:39 AM
Wonder how big they'll make him.
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:49 AM
Yeah, androgyny was very popular in Egypt, so I'm not surprised they went with a feminine looking Apocalypse.
Kind of adds to the mystery.

He also had his trademark "lipstick" that Apoc has, so that will have made him appear more feminine.
Kyos - 5/23/2014, 4:53 AM
Did he have, urm, "the mouth"? Like, did the mouth resemble the classic ESN look? I'm watching this on Sunday, but I want to know now! ;)
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:53 AM
I'm getting pissed off now, ha!
I've watched it 10 times and I'm like 99% sure it's the androgynous model Andrej Pejic!!!!
I'm dying to find out it I'm right :(

SuperCat - 5/23/2014, 4:54 AM
@ Cherry

Damn, good catch. Didn't notice the lips.
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:54 AM
mbembet - 5/23/2014, 4:55 AM
very good movie way much better than overrated crap from matthew vaughn first class
RyKnow - 5/23/2014, 4:56 AM
@ ManDeth - That's just lame dude.
jimjim - 5/23/2014, 4:56 AM
All the other studios are slowly but surely following marvels blueprint of after credits. I wonder why they didn't get that copy written.
Nubase - 5/23/2014, 4:56 AM
Young rulers in their teens in ancient egypt where made to look feminine, its history, look it up so they got it spot on
Nubase - 5/23/2014, 4:57 AM

WB/DC are not doing after scene credits
CherryBomb - 5/23/2014, 4:58 AM

Errrrm didn't Fox do it first with the post credits scene for X Men The Last Stand???
