X-Men Apocalypse is more than just that other 2016 Marvel superhero movie. The Fox sequel to X-Men: First Class and this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has been quietly building momentum while DC and Marvel prepare for battle with their big films Batman vs. Superman and Captain America 3. X-Men: Apocalypse comes out a few weeks after those two, on May 27, 2016. Bryan Singer, Dan Harris, Michael Dougherty and Simon Kinberg are all currently working on breaking down the story, which will probably deal with the super-evil mutant of the title.
In a new interview, Singer revealed a few more details on the film, including the fact it’ll be an Eighties period piece, and the logical continuation of the Seventies look of Days of Future Past, and that it will have “will more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon.” Read the quotes below.

The release of 25 different magazine covers for X-Men: Days of Future Past both answered a bunch of questions but raised a bunch too. We found out what Quicksilver was going to look like, and saw the modern Sentinels, but at the same time, why did Wolverine have metal claws in the future considering what happened in The Wolverine? And wasn’t Rogue cut out of the film?
In an new interview, director Bryan Singer and writer Simon Kinberg answered those questions and even addressed the next announced X-Men film, X-Men Apocalypse, calling it “more of a First Class sequel.” Read the quotes below. Read More »
Bryan Singer finished 2013 with a bang, revealing that another X-Men sequel, called X-Men: Apocalypse, will hit theaters in 2016. The writer/director is still finishing X-Men: Days of Future Past but the announcement suggested the X-Men universe would continue to expand in a major way.
Singer just did a new interview where he said he’s yet to decide if there will be a post-credit scene teasing the 2016 film. Plus, while he’s co-writing and producing the new sequel, he’s not yet locked in to direct. Read More »

What a year 2013 has been for movie news. Fox, DC, and Marvel all dropped huge announcements about their respective comic book franchises, Lucasfilm passed the Star Wars mantle to J.J.

With 2014 approaching, movie news will continue to be incredibly slow until early January, so we figured we’d write about a massive rumor that is unsubstantiated, but fun to think about and actually quite plausible. It involves Fox’s Marvel properties the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
An investment website is reporting Fox is planning on following in Marvel and Warner Bros.’ footsteps by creating a film based on the 1987 miniseries Fantastic Four vs. X-Men.
Update: The original source has already retracted its first info, killing the rumor.

That X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting a sequel isn’t much of a surprise, but Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalpyse announcement coming months before Days of Future Past even opened did. We’re not complaining, though — that just gives us more time to brush up on the source material.
While Apocalypse is one of the X-Men’s better known adversaries, he’s racked up so much story and backstory since his introduction in 1986 that even savvy comic book readers may need a refresher. Fortunately, we’ve found a five-minute video that offers just that. Sure, you could get most of the same info by wading through Apocalypse’s 7,000-word page on Wikipedia, but… I’ve tried, and trust me, this way is a lot more fun. Watch it after the jump.

The X-Men: Apocalypse situation is interesting — director Bryan Singer “announced” the film via tweet, but parent studio Fox has yet to officially confirm or comment on the project, other than the register of a release date (May 27, 2016) that showed up on BoxOfficeMojo. The film is a presumed sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the title suggests the inclusion of X-Men villain Apocalypse, but that’s almost all we know.
Now Singer has tweeted an image of a “late night story session” for the film, showing him at work with Simon Kinberg, who we know has a big role in Fox’s superhero movie plans. Also in the pic are X2: X-Men United screenwriters Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris. Read More »
