Bryan Singer reveals X-Men: Apocalypse writing team

We analyse in too much depth a picture that Bryan Singer has Tweeted of the X-Men: Apocalypse story team..

Never let it be said that director Bryan Singer can't multi-task. He's in post-production right now on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which is set to land in cinemas in May, but he's also hard at work with the team putting the story together for 2016's follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Singer's supplied regular updates on his X-Men work via his Twitter account, and he's now posted a picture of the team trying to lock down the story for Apocalypse. In his Tweet are Simon Kinberg (the man tasked with overseeing a Marvel-style cinematic universe for the X-Men movies), Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty (the pair who penned the script for X2 and Superman Returns).

Here's the picture that Singer posted...

And we have questions. Firstly, why did they order Chinese food as well as a platter of sandwiches? How telling is it that the sandwiches remain under clingfilm, whilst the Chinese food has been attacked first?

Furthermore, what's wrong with these dips and sauces?

And were there crisps in here? If so, what flavour?

Finally, while everyone else is paying attention, what's he looking at? Is there a mysterious figure just out of shot? Has the pizza delivery man arrived at the front door? Is he wondering if he has to clean up all the mess before he gets to go home?

We like to think we get to the heart of matters at Den Of Geek. We're, er, sure you'll agree...

X-Men: Apocalypse is due in cinemas in the summer of 2016.

You certainly did ask the most pertinent questions.

The real question is just how many penises he has drawn in that notebook...?

Do we reckon it's a coincidence that the unopened chinese takeaway box has an 'X' emblem on the top?

Pointless yet humorous article. I like it!

Although why Chinese? What's wrong with Curry? Does the choice in food allude to Apocalypse's altered heritage in the film? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!?

One of my favourite articles of all time.

Too funny.

What's the box of tissues for?

and if he put bristles on the balls

He looks like a pro.

You lost me at Superman Returns. You may as well have said "poison farts".
