X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Sequel Originally Intended To Be Called 'Age Of Apocalypse'

X-Men Days of Future Past editor and composer John Ottman revealed in a recent interview that the announced sequel 'X-Men: Apocalypse' was due to be sub titled 'Age of Apocalypse' after the comic book of the same name. However, another 'Age of..' Marvel Studios film prevented this.

Attatched to the end of X-Men Days of Future Past is an end credits teaser scene which begins the story of the announced sequel titles X-Men: Apocalypse. In a reccent interview, editor and composer of X-Men: Days of Future Past, John Ottman, revelaed that the film was due to be titled X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse, here's what he had to say:

Do you know what specific Apocalypse story they might be using as inspiration? There are so many good ones to choose from. Most are assuming it will be "Age of Apocalypse." That would leave you with your hands full, given the alternate timeline stuff to play with.

I know they wanted to call the film "Age of Apocalypse," but they couldn't because there's some other film coming out around the same time called "Age of" something and they didn't want to make it sound like the exact same title. They decided that would be lame so they just called it "Apocalypse."

 Yeah, I guess there's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction".

I know that there's like this giant, hard-bound book that I saw them going through in my editing room a few months ago. So I think they're taking all that to heart. But as to which one it is or which combination of stories it is, I have no idea.

With the Avengers and Transformers sequels both using an 'Age of...' subtitle it makes sense that X-men do not follow the trend, it is also interesting to note that the 'Age Of Apocalypse' is still being considered as inspiration for the sequel after it was discussed months ago.

Are you happy with the title or would you have preffered 'Age of Apocalypse'? Sound off below!

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original "X-Men" film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from "X-Men: First Class," in an epic battle that must change the past -- to save our future.
