We’ve known for a while that Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will focus more on the young cast, and Patrick Stewart recently confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen will be returning for the upcoming installment in the franchise. While we won’t see those old, familiar faces, Singer is bringing back another ‘X-Men’ star for the sequel: Rose Byrne will return to reprise her role as Moira MacTaggert from ‘X-Men: First Class.’

We’ve heard for some time now that Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is casting the roles of young Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm, as the film will focus more on the younger generation of ‘First Class’ rather than once again uniting both old and new casts. While several names were floated, Fox has officially settled on their choices, with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner set to play Jean, ‘Joe’ star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ star Alexandra Shipp taking on the role of Storm.
'X-Men 3' was the most disappointing installment of the entire franchise to date, with the exception of, perhaps, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine.' Director Bryan Singer, who helmed both 'X-Men' and 'X2,' was onboard 'The Last Stand' but dropped out right before production began so he could direct 'Superman Returns' instead. (Great choice, right?) This allowed Brett Ratner to step in and totally obliterate 'The Dark Phoenix Saga,' the comic book arc that served as the basis for the film. Now, more than eight years after 'X-Men 3' hit theaters, new concept art has leaked online to show us what we could've got if Singer were at the helm.
Bryan Singer has directed most of the 'X-Men' movies, with the exception of 'First Class' and the standalone Wolverine adventures. Despite the box office success of 'Days of Future Past,' however, his return as director for 2016's 'X-Men: Apocalypse' was in doubt. He's already working on the story, but could recent events prevent him from taking the reins? We finally have an answer, and it's that Singer will indeed be back to direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse.'
We got our first taste of what's in store for the next 'X-Men' film, 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' in the post-credits scene for 'Days of Future Past,' which previewed the all-powerful villain in his early years in ancient Egypt. With a release date set for May 2016, director Bryan Singer and his writing team have been putting together the script, and while little is known about the plot, an Instagrammed photo of the current treatment reveals that The Four Horsemen will indeed have a part to play.
If you saw 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' this weekend, chances are you walked away with a couple of questions about that mysterious post-credits sequence. For fans unfamiliar with comic book canon, the identity of the character was a pretty big question mark (which is why you should read our handy guide), but there was one thing of which all of us were uncertain: just who the heck was that actor?
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' features the true big-screen debut of some of the most iconic villains in Marvel comics history: the mutant-hunting robots known as the Sentinels. Thanks to the film's time-traveling plot, we get to see two very different versions of these things in action. However, some newly released concept art gives us a glimpse at what they could have looked like.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' claimed the box office after one weekend in theaters with a cast that includes more mutants than you can throw a Sentinel at, and it's one of the best 'X-Men' films to date. Because we know you're wondering when you can bring this puppy home, we've got the first look at the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Deluxe Blu-ray Edition!
For better or worse, the current status of the superhero movie can be tracked back to one film. One modestly budgeted production designed the template and set the tone for a film movement that still hasn't peaked. Some remember it fondly. Some think it got more wrong than it did right. But there's no denying it: Bryan Singer's 'X-Men' is undoubtedly one of the most important and influential films of the past two decades.
First things first: that cute little girl you see above sitting on Quicksilver's lap in a scene from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is not Scarlet Witch. When that image was first revealed, fans immediately began speculating that the little girl was a version of Wanda Maximoff, but director Bryan Singer has confirmed that's not her, while adding that Scarlet Witch almost was in the movie.
