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.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens this weekend and with it, all the previous X-Men movies have been blended together. Bryan Singer‘s groundbreaking first two movies, Brett Ratner’s terrible third, the good and bad Wolverine movies, and Matthew Vaughn’s First Class all come together in an ambitious story involving time travel and a massive, star-studded cast.
Which is basically to say, if you don’t have a least a working knowledge of those films, some of what happens in Days of Future Past is likely to result in copious head scratching. No matter. The team at Vulture has created a quick, 3-minute Days of Future Past primer that includes all the important pieces of information you need to know about the X-Men movies before heading to the theater this weekend.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past picking up some very promising reviews on its way to theaters, now seems as good a time as any to take a long, hard look at the last mutant movie, X-Men: First Class. And no one’s looking longer or harder than the folks at CinemaSins, who’ve made the comic book reboot the latest subject of their signature “Everything Wrong With” series.
As usual, the complaints range from totally valid (that villain plot does seem awfully convoluted) to the totally silly (who cares what happened with those Twinkies?). Watch the video after the jump.

As Simon Kinberg has been at work scripting a sequel to X-Men: First Class for producer Bryan Singer and returning director Matthew Vaughn, speculation has run rampant that the film would feature the ‘Days of Future Past’ storyline, which originally appeared in the pages of Uncanny X-Men in 1981.

Those who read X-Men comics in the ’80s, or those who have caught up with some of the classic storylines from The Uncanny X-Men, will recognize the name Days of Future Past. The two-issue story ran in 1981 and featured a future in which a political assassination has led to concentration camps holding mutants, and the deaths of many X-Men characters.
AICN was tipped off that Fox has registered Days of Future Past as a title with the MPAA. That quickly led to speculation that the studio is mining the storyline for an upcoming X-Men film. Whether that film could be the upcoming First Class sequel or a fourth X-Men title, if anything at all, is open to question. Read More »
