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.

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.

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.
