Bryan Singer talks X-Men: Apocalypse

Singer has been chatting about the follow up to the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.

With the release of X-Men: Days Of Future Past mere months away, you'd have thought that the focus for director Bryan Singer would be to publicise and talk up that film. Instead, much of his recent conversation has been about X-Men: Apocalypse. In fairness to Singer, he has always been forthcoming with information about Days Of Future Past without giving too much away, and it's pleasing to see this level of enthusiasm.

Singer has been chatting once again about X-Men: Apocalypse, and here's what he had to say about it: “I'm co-writing the story and I'm producing it. I'm negotiating to direct. We're in the process. We're trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.”

I'm sure if Days of Future Past proves to be a hit - and it's surely unlikely that it'll flop - then Singer will have no problems securing the job. Singer went on to discuss the ideas he has for Apocalypse: “It will also address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It's something that's always intrigued me when we think about our gods and our history and miracles and powers.”

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is set for release on the 22nd May 2014 with X-Men: Apocalypse following in 2016.
