After Bryan Singer announced a new X-Men movie called X-Men: Apocalypse yesterday, which will be coming May 27th, 2016. It would be safe to assume the movie will introduce the villain Apocalypse.
Thanks to website Firstshowing.net, we have some SPOILER information about X-Men: Days of Future Past and how it will tease the X-Men: Apocalypse sequel in the end credits sequence.
If you don’t want to get spoiled turn back now.
The site claims to have gotten confirmation from two different sources, and received a copy of one of the most recent drafts of the script for Days of Future Past. The source explained to them that ”an existing X-Men character will become possessed by the villain who can project his consciousness and powers into host bodies.”
“However, the credits bumper jumps back to the past with a young Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) in a ramshackle house in the desert eating dinner, clearly on the run from all the authorities who want to bring him down. While using a well outside to get some water, the young Magneto sees something fall from the night sky and crash to Earth nearby. Upon inspecting the impact zone, he encounters what is described as an ‘alien form’ who is ‘towering, terrifying, with a twisted metal face and dark pits for eyes.’ It’s Apocalypse and he says, ‘I have crossed rivers of time to find you.’ Magneto asks, ‘Who are you?’
“The alien responds, ‘I am your future.’ Suddenly Apocalypse merges with Magneto, who screams and blasts an insane amount of energy and shockwaves around him. This energy explosion levels everything around him, with a blast radius that goes for miles. As Magneto looks at what he’s done, he has a realization of the power he now holds and a villainous grin begins to form before the film cuts to black.”
So if true what do you think? Not exactly the Apocalypse I know. It almost sounds like Onslaught, When Charles Xavier telepathically rendered Magneto catatonic and unknowingly absorbed Magneto’s dark ego. Magneto’s negative emotions merged with Xavier’s suppressed urges, forming a powerful, dormant psionic entity – the self-dubbed Onslaught.
