The Avengers have Thanos. Spider-Man has the Sinister Six. Now it seems the X-Men are finally getting their central, all-powerful baddie to fight -- Apocalypse.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director Bryan Singer recently announced that the sequel to his ultimate mutant team-up will be 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' coming on May 27, 2016. While no other information was revealed at the time, it is presumed to take its name from one of the most powerful beings in the X-Men universe and perhaps even one of his most famous comic-book arcs, 'Age of Apocalypse.'
But who is this end-of-times mutant? For those unfamiliar, here's a brief intro to this classic comic-book villain.
Director Bryan Singer announced Thursday that the next film to follow 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will bear the name of 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and hit on May 27, 2016. With no other information to go on, the film is merely presumed to take its name from the Apocalypse character in the comics and perhaps even the storyline 'Age of Apocalypse.' However, more details have shed some light on this title that through the Internet into a frenzy.
We're more than five months away from the release of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and already the next installment in this cinematic universe, 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' has been announced for release in May 2016!

We were more excited than annoyed when Syfy announced its intent to reboot classic Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis timebender '12 Monkeys' as a TV series, even moreso now that casting has begun. 'Nikita' and 'X-Men' franchise star Aaron Stanford will take the role once played by Bruce Willis in the big-screen adaptation, while another will fill Madeline Stowe's role, and producers have been chosen as well.
X-Men fans finally got a look at the long-awaited 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer, and while no footage of the famous mutant-hunting Sentinel robots was present, we did get a rundown of all the returning (and some new) faces in this 'X-Men: First Class' sequel. We know there was a lot to take in in the short amount of time, so director Bryan Singer has offered up his own commentary on the trailer, taking a deep dive into some bits that may have passed you by.
It was only Thursday that Fox announced the first 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer will drop online this coming Tuesday, October 29, and now we have more of a preview than just a six-second-long teaser. Get a load of the new photos, featuring the ultimate mutant team-up.
Keep October 29 bookmarked in your calendars, because that's when the first 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer will hit the web. However, you don't have to wait till then to get a look at the first footage! Fox has released (as is the current trend) a teaser reel of footage for the trailer, just after the first 'Captain America 2' trailer debuted. Perfect timing!
Although 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opens next summer, we still don't know too much about Bolivar Trask, the latest villain to threaten mutantkind. Played by 'Game of Thrones' star Peter Dinklage, Trask is the scientist behind the Sentinels, giant killer robots that have been menacing the X-Men for decades in the pages of the comics. But beyond that? We don't know much about his on-screen incarnation. Thankfully, Dinklage himself recently opened up about his character, revealing that one of 2014's biggest bad guys might not be such a bad guy after all.
