New details arrive about the next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse.
Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg offer details about the movie to EW which include that it will be “somewhat” based on the 1990s “Age Of Apocalypse” comic book storyline.
“[The movie] won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with,” Singer said.
Kinberg also offered that it might be bigger than X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which hits next month featuring the cast of the original X-Men movies and that of First Class.
“From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply,” Kinberg added.
Singer also said that X-Men: Days Of Future Past will tie into X-Men: Apocalypse.
“You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You’re dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?”
Previous details about X-Men: Apocalypse also mentioned that it will be set in the 1980s, and Singer recently said he wants Gambit and Nightcrawler for the movie.
X-Men: Apocalypse has a May 27, 2016 release date.
