Bryan Singer teases Cairo destruction on X-Men: Apocalypse set…

July 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Has Bryan Singer teased more than just destruction in X-Men: Apocalypse? Is this where Ororo Munroe, Storm, is born?

The image above is from the Cairo set of the movie but it looks like it could be place that saw a young girl become the X-Man known as Storm.

Born in New York, in the comics young Ororo was taken to Cairo where she tragically lost both parents in a plane crash. She survived but was lucky to escape, almost paralysed with severe claustrophobia. She lived on the streets, surviving as a thief before she fell in with professor Xavier and his school.

We know that Alexandra Shipp is playing the young Storm in the movie, so this could well be the real deal.

Let us know what you think, guys…

Arriving in theaters on May 27, 2016, Apocalypse is set in 1983 and finds the mutants, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Charles (James McAvoy), taking sides as the godlike Apocalypse plots world destruction.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
