New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST...Plus, Info on X-MEN: APOCALYPSE!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST sees Bryan Singer's return to the film franchise that he first started back in 2000. But that return certainly isn't going to make the end of his journey. He revealed back in December that another X-Men film is in the works, entitled X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and that he will be back on board as director. While DOFP will introduce time travel, combine the extensive casts of the original X-MEN films and FIRST CLASS and bring the long-awaited arrival of the Sentinals into the mix, Singer promises even more out of APOCALYPSE.
In the latest issue of Total Film (via Comic Book Movie), Singer says that X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty and DAYS OF FUTURE PAST scribe Simon Kinberg are currently working on the script, and drops some clues as to what the next film will bring:
We’re going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants – the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it’ll be a contemporary movie – well, it’ll take place in the ’80s…The ’80s is a period now – it’s hard for me to believe that!
He also indicates that he looks to be going bigger and more spectacle-heavy with APOCALYPSE than any X-MEN film to date:
Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle… I don’t want to get too specific, but we’ll introduce familiar characters in a younger time. That’ll be fun to show the audience. I call these movies in-between-quels. It’s a mind-fuck sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline!
But before we get to mass destruction in the '80's, we have to see how DAYS OF FUTURE PAST ties everything together. Fortunately, we won't have to wait too long, as the film opens on May 23rd. Total Film released some new images - check them out below.
