Bryan Singer will next make 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which begins filming this fall, but the director isn’t done with the X-Men franchise yet. His newest addition to the series, X-Men: Apocalypse, opens in theaters this Friday, but he’s already expressed interest in continuing with the franchise, although whether he’ll direct another sequel is unconfirmed. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg revealed the next installment will take place in the ’90s, presumably following the latest recruits, and possibly the X-Men: First Class castmates if they decide to return.
But what about the original cast, the one Bryan Singer helped put together for the first X-Men film? Most of them appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but did that conclude their involvement with the franchise? Below, Singer says he’s interested in bringing back the original X-Men cast members, but only under the right circumstances.

20th Century Fox is taking a two-pronged approach with the X-Men: Apocalypse marketing today, with two very different promo videos. On one end of the spectrum, we have a warm and fuzzy viral video that looks like something out of the ’80s, with Lana Condor‘s Jubilee inviting special folks to enroll at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. On the other, we’ve got a super-serious, super-grim clip featuring a pissed-off Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the promise of death and destruction. Check out both after the jump. Read More »

Wolverine 3 has been operating under a shroud of secrecy. We know it’ll bring back Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and that it’ll loosely be based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan storyline. But even as the cast continues to grow — with Fear the Walking Dead and Orange Is the New Black star Elizabeth Rodriguez as its latest exciting addition — we haven’t heard a whole lot about which characters these actors will be playing.
We may, however, finally have some clue as to whom Wolverine will be going up against, thanks to X-Men: Apocalypse. Although the film won’t open in the U.S. for another week, word from overseas is that the end-credits scenes may hold some key information about the villain of Wolverine 3. Obviously, SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse follow. Read More »
