At Comic-Con this past summer, fans were given an early first look at X-Men: Apocalypse.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Mutants have always fought mutants in the X-Men comics and films, whether as a way to improve their stills, and therefore their chances for survival, or out of deep ideological disagreements. Mutants will definitely be pitted against one another in the film X-Men: Apocalypse, thanks to the efforts of the first mutant, Apocalypse, to gather a cadre of powerful mutants in order to fulfill whatever crazed plan is in his head.
Now Bryan Singer has shared a new Instagram post, one of many from the set of the film, in which Ben Hardy, who plays Angel, takes part (willingly or against his will) in a fight club in East Berlin in 1982. Check that out below, along with some speculation about what it means for the movie. (Slight possible spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse follow, but there’s nothing below that hasn’t been offically revealed.) Read More »

Now a new set photo from director Bryan Singer teases that Stewart might be back in some capacity after all, with the actor seen on set during production. See the Patrick Stewart X-Men Apocalypse set photo after the jump! Read More »
