Simon Kinberg On The Titular Villain Of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Simon Kinberg On The Titular Villain Of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

The Days Of Future Past screenwriter/producer discusses the next movie in the X-Men franchise, and talks about the challenges faced in coming up with a new and compelling screen villain for our mutant heroes to face. Check out the video interview after the jump.


"We want to tell the Apocalypse story and there's massive scale and scope to telling that story. There's going to be set pieces that I suspect are going to be bigger than anything we've ever done in an X-Men movie before and he's a great character. The biggest and funnest challenge of the Apocalypse movie to me is his character. How do you create a new villain for the X-Men world that is as good as any villain that's come before, is compelling philosophically as Magneto, not just in his physical powers, but in his philosophical depth. 'Apocalypse' is going to be a fun movie to write and make."

X-Men: Apocalypse is currently set for release on May 27, 2016.
