Bryan Singer is definitely directing X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be set up by the ending of X-Men: Days Of Future Past...

Announced out of the blue last week was the latest film in the X-Men cinematic saga, X-Men: Apocalypse. The news of the 2016 release broke on Bryan Singer's Twitter feed, and was subsequently confirmed, and now one or two more details have started to emerge.

Firstly, it's definite that Bryan Singer will be directing the new film. He's currently still working on next year's X-Men: Days Of Future past, but once he's locked that, he'll be onto the new X-Men film.

This time, though, Singer won't be juggling the old and new X-Men casts, as he is in Days Of Future Past. Instead, the focus of X-Men: Apocalypse will be on the First Class ensemble, led by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender (some of the older crowd may yet pop up in small roles, we'd imagine).

The film will be directly set up by the ending of X-Men: Days Of Future Past too. And Bryan Singer has also Tweeted that Apocalypse is not an alien in the film, in response to internet rumours that were doing the rounds.

X-Men: Apocalypse will arrive in the summer of 2016.
