X-Men: Apocalypse to be set in the 1980s
The next X-Men film will be set ten years after X-Men: Days Of Future Past, it's been revealed...
Just a quick one, this. Given that X-Men: First Class was set in the 1960s, and X-Men: Days Of Future Past mainly in the 1970s, we're suspecting that the news we're about to report won't come as a great deal of a shock.
However, here goes: the next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, is going to be set in the 1980s. Specifically, it's going to be set in 1983, which puts it ten years after the events of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Writer and producer Simon Kinberg confirmed this on the The Q&A Podcast.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release in cinemas on May 27th 2016. More news on the film as we hear it, of course.
