Taking a minute from directing to promote the special edition Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer has shared some details of his new film. You might’ve heard of it.
Singer has promised that X-Men Apocalypse will be showing us a side of the X-Men we have yet to see, and that the action will be global in scale. Perhaps this should be expected, given the main villain’s name:
“Apocalypse is a pretty cool character. X-Men is always centered around the fight between mutants and humans. This one is a bit different, it deals with the concept of ancient mutantism, gods and men. It deals with issues that are global. Apocalypse makes no distinction between humans and mutants, only between the weak and the strong. He as a character is what is so ultimately compelling.”
The director also mentions that the younger characters are pretty far removed from the way they would become in later films:
“These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3. They are at times in their lives when they are at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and began.”
Not wanting to tempt fate, but so far everything that has come out about this movie so far seems good. Here’s hoping…
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on 27 May 2016.
