Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg and the whole team are hard at work in pre-production on X-Men: Apocalypse. Filming starts this April up in Montreal for a summer 2016 release. The film will be set in the ’80s, following the old timeline from the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past with the stars of that movie returning: Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and more. It’ll be the biggest X-Men movie yet, introducing the character Apocalypse.
In a new interview, Kinberg suggests the new film might be the end of that story. The writer and producer says the creative time is looking at X-Men Apocalypse as the conclusion of a trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class. He also says new characters like Cable, Scarlet Witch and Psylocke could appear, and settles the debate about the series’ timeline and which films X-Men: Days of Future Past wiped out.

Comic fans tend to overreact. For example, they know Charles Xavier should be bald and in a wheelchair. But when James McAvoy was cast in the role for X-Men First Class, he had a full head of hair and was walking around. This should not stand! Literally!
By the end of that film, though, the whole standing thing was taken care of. (Sorry, Charles.) Now it seems like the follicle fallacy will soon be solved as well. In a new interview, McAvoy admitted he doesn’t know much about 2016′s X-Men Apocalypse, but does think he’ll finally have to shave his head.
