Bryan Singer teases X-Men: Apocalypse opening

News Simon Brew 1 Jul 2014 - 07:06

As Days Of Future Past becomes the biggest film of the year, Bryan Singer teases the next X-Men movie...

This story contains a spoiler for the X-Men: Days Of Future Past post-credits sequence.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the top grossing movie worldwide in 2014 thus far (although expect Transformers: Age Of Extinction to seize that crown in due course). Bryan Singer's film has thus put the X-Men movie franchise in stronger commercial shape than ever. Unsurprisingly, Fox wants its next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, in cinemas in 2016.

Singer - in spite of matters outside of the movie business - is still expected to direct the film, and he's taken to Instagram to tease how it's going to begin. And it's going to pick up by the looks of things where the post-credits tease of X-Men: Days Of Future Past ended.

In fact, judging by what we can see on the front of the screenplay teased by Singer, pretty much exactly at that point...

The Four Horsemen it is, then.

Note the writing credits too, incidentally. Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris - as well as being the credited screenplay writers for Superman Returns - were two of the names who shared credit for the excellent X2X-Men: Apocalypse marks their formal return to the X-Men movie series.

I was hoping for more scenes set in ancient Egypt! The tease at the end of DOFP was entirely scintillating and a great indication of where the franchise is headed. I'd love to see Wolverine be taken on as one of the Horsemen, it would be interesting to see him in a villain role.

But when does the takeaway chinese and the tray of sandwiches come into it? Literally my first thought when I see Apocalypse on DoG.

I hope they use the Four Horsemen from The Young Ones "God, im bored" (sarcastically) "So what's new?" "Microchip technology" "What?" "Microchip technology, that's quite new" "Wanna play Travel Scrabble Death?" "Death! Wanna play Travel Scrabble?"

Some historical scenes would be great but I hope Wolverine takes a lesser, background role.

I hope to see Polaris, Archangel, Gambit, and Sunfire introduced as the four horsemen. Tis would be perfecto

X2 wasn't my favourite film. I hope they don't cheese it up. I've enjoyed the recent x-men films so far

I enjoyed Days of Future Past and all, but did they really need to spoil so much of it with the trailers and so on? Heck of a way to market a film...
