Bryan Singer reveals that X-Men: Apocalypse is heading to cinemas in 2016...

20th Century Fox has no intention of letting the rights lapse to X-Men anytime soon, and the studio has announced, via director Bryan Singer, a brand new movie in the series.

The new film will be called X-Men: Apocalypse, and already has a scheduled release date of May 27th 2016 in the US. That'd mean, we'd guess, that the next Wolverine feature is going to slot in either in 2015 or 2017. Don't be surprised if it's the former.

The title gives at least a little bit of the game away. Apocalypse is an ancient mutant in the world of X-Men, and a formidable foe for the X-Men to face off against. The suggestion is that the film will follow the Age Of Apocalypse narrative, and that Days Of Future Past's ending may well set up a lead into the next film.

Details are scarce at the moment, but Singer's simple Tweet certainly helped keep the internet bubbling over for a bit!

More news on the film as we get it.
