Simon Kinberg Says X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Will Change The X-MEN Universe Forever

In a new interview, writer Simon Kinberg talks X-Men: Apocalypse and explains how the giant sequel will change the X-Men Universe, if it ties-in with Deadpool & Gambit, and also touches on whether Wolverine 3 will actually be Hugh Jackman's last turn as Wolverine!

X-Men: Days Of Future Past was a colossal hit, so it should come as no surprise that the upcoming sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, is expected to be one of the biggest films of 2016. The film is set to feature possibly the largest ensemble ever assembled in a X-Men film with returning First Class/DOFP mutants Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, Beast, Havok, and Quicksilver finally being joined by X-Men mainstays Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Nightcrawler, Gambit, and more!

In a recent interview with IGN, writer/producer Simon Kinberg took a few moments to chat about the highly anticipated Bryan Singer film. Without revealing much, Kinberg does admit that the three upcoming X-Men films (Deadpool, Apocalypse, & Gambit) will be aware of one another, and that events, or the fallout, from each film will be acknowledged in subsequent films. He also reveals that the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, clearly the biggest of the three, will change the history of the X-Men cinematic universe forever. What this means is yet-to-be seen, but with some of the most prominent X-Men returning to the scene, this opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Additionally, a crossover with another Kinberg-produced project, The Fantastic Four, could always be on the horizon as well.

Before finishing off, Kinberg is asked a quick question about whether or not we'll learn what Mystique did with Wolverine following the end of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and whether or not James Mangold's Wolverine 3 will actually be the final time we see the Academy Award-nominated Hugh Jackman suit up as the fan-favorite Wolverine. He says we will see more than a few unresolved questions answered, but when asked to further elaborate about Jackman's status, he replies with a sly smile, says he loves Jackman as Wolverine, and the always reliable: "No comment."

Check out his full comments in the video below: 

"You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. … Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You’re dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?" -Bryan Singer
