X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Is 'More A FIRST CLASS Sequel,' Confirms Bryan Singer

Teasing viewpoints and other "ancient mutant" aspects of the titular villain, director Bryan Singer and X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg discuss Apocalypse and the sequel's source material.

The director and writer behind this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg, discussed the “inbetweenqual” and its forthcoming sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, in the latest Empire Magazine issue (via SuperheroHype). “One thing that interests me is the notion of ancient mutants,” said Singer. “What would people thousands of years ago, without the benefit of science, think mutants were? And more importantly, what would mutants thousands of years ago think they were? Gods? Titans? Angels? Demons? And if such mutants did exist thousands of years ago, what became of them? Did one survive?” Singer also made an effort to confirm that Apocalypse is “more of a First Class sequel,” but it will “take place some time after this movie. What happens in this movie brings about what'll happen in that movie.” Simon Kinberg, who is currently helping Fox studios to establish their own Marvel Cinematic Universe, talked with Empire about the comic book storyline which X-Men: Apocalypse is seemingly based on. “Age of Apocalypse was one of my favorite stores,” he said. “We like the stakes of it, and it feels like a story that could impact a lot of our favorite characters in big, dramatic ways. We feel it's a very different story from Days of Future Past. For starters, it's a very different villain, and the characters will be in very different places emotionally.” What do you think?

After X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014, X-Men: Apocalypse will hit on May 26, 2016
