‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Concept Art Reveals Retro Cerebro and an Egyptian Tomb
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.
Empire posted the new concept art images (below), which tease the ‘80s versions of X-Jet and Cerebro, as well as a mysterious Egyptian catacomb — probably one of Apocalypse’s spots. Seems like a real cool chill pad for Oscar Isaac’s villain bro.
In the accompanying interview, director Bryan Singer confirmed that the film takes place in 1983, 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. He also describes the sequel as “a big monster of a movie” with high stakes and a “mythic villain.” Singer went on to add, “It’s definitely an X-Men movie, but it really feels different.”
Returning for the film are Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult, as well as First Class star Rose Byrne, reprising her role as Moira MacTaggert. New additions to the cast include Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers and Olivia Munn as Psylocke.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
