The latest photo posted to Bryan Singer’s Instagram account doesn’t show you a whole lot, but it does tell you quite a bit. Not only will we be seeing Apocalypse in the next X-Men outing, but we’ll be getting another new character from the comic books as well — one who hasn’t appeared in any previous X-Men film: Caliban.
Earlier today, we learned about a surprise X-Men: New Mutants spinoff to be written and directed by Josh Boone (so The Stand probably isn’t happening anymore, right?), but before we get that far, we still have X-Men: Apocalypse, the final chapter in Bryan Singer’s X-Men saga. Today, the director has teased a mysterious new photo from the set of the film with a rather cautionary caption.
Although James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier has sported a healthy head of hair in the recent X-Men films, we all knew the kindly mutant professor would have to lose all that hair pretty soon. Professor X’s bald head is a trademark, and it’s one we’ll get to see on the big screen in X-Men: Apocalypse, as promised in this new behind the scenes image.
We’ve known for some time now that Bryan Singer and Fox have been planning to release a “Rogue Cut” of X-Men: Days of Future Past, featuring 17 additional minutes of excised material — primarily Rogue’s plot, which had to be cut for time. Not only is there a DVD/Blu-ray release date for this alternate version of the film, but there’s also a theatrical release date, in case you’d like to experience it on the big screen.
Another day, another X-Men: Apocalypse reveal courtesy of director Bryan Singer’s Instagram page! This time, he’s given us our first clear look at Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey and Lana Condor’s Jubilee, both of them looking delightful in their circa-1983 outfits. In all seriousness, who needs superhero uniforms when you have ‘80s fashion?
Earlier today, it was rumored that both X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 2 will mark the end of Bryan Singer’s X-Men Cinematic Universe (or XCU, sure, that can be a thing). That makes Apocalypse even more exciting, as the film promises to raise the stakes considerably, taking the the super-team around the globe. New concept art not only shows off an Egyptian location, but a little bit of the film’s ‘80s tech, giving us a peek at the early iteration of Cerebro.
Everything eventually comes to an end ... except in Hollywood, where an ending simply means another reboot is around the corner. So what are we to make of the new rumor swirling around the internet that claims the current X-Men movie universe will come to an end following the release of X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 2? If true, it probably means we get to look forward to and/or dread all of the recasting that will start to rear its head in a few years.
Today marks the first day of filming on X-Men: Apocalypse and to celebrate the beginning of a new X-Men adventure, director Bryan Singer revealed the first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as your favorite teleporting mutant, Nightcrawler. BAMF!
'X-Men: Apocalypse' continues to cast some of your favorite mutants to join the upcoming superhero sequel, with director Bryan Singer revealing that fan favorite Psylocke will be played by Olivia Munn.
From the moment we knew that the next X-Men movie was going to be titled X-Men: Apocalypse, comic geeks knew to expect the return of Angel. But not just any Angel, and certainly not the traditional, angelic version that showed up in X-Men: The Last Stand. Now, all of those geeky suspicions and predictions have come to fruition. Director Bryan Singer has revealed new concept art that shows off Archangel, the nastier, slightly more villainous version of the character.
