X-Men Apocalypse Review

As the third film in the most recent trilogy in the X-Men franchise, it’s pretty bold to have a joke in X-Men: Apocalypse that mentions the third film in a trilogy is usually the worst. The line is meant to take a shot at the almost universally hated X-Men: The Last Stand, and while X-Men: Apocalypse is nowhere near as bad as Brett Ratner’s film from 2006, it’s not without some shortcomings of its own.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a simple, hollow story, spinning a wheel that also treads water. However, it also does a great job of bringing the young versions of familiar X-Men into this modified timeline and delivers some thoroughly entertaining action. In short, X-Men: Apocalypse feels like an extended episode of X-Men: The Animated Series, for better and worse.

Original X-Men Cast

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.
