Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

It does seem quite early, only two years after DOFP (when it was 3 with the X-Trilogy)
Especially if this is seperate from the X-Force movie, with this article only released two days ago

I thought Mysique was working for Apocalypse when she assassinated Senator Kelly?
Hmm, I suppose she probably was. But Apocalypse didn't actually appear in the story.

I will be very, very curious to see their visual take on the character.

I've never been a big fan of Apocalypse, but he's probably a good choice for a movie.

BTW, do we think it'll be called X-Men: Apocalypse or X-Men: Age of Apocalypse? The Age thing might have a bit of confusion with Avengers: Age of Ultron, but they're several years apart so that might not matter at all.
Well, one year.

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

I keep forgetting that Avengers is so far away. So what are the 2014 movies, Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy? Didn't Avengers have two other movies that year?

Yes, currently slated for April and August respectively. Avengers: Age of Ultron is for May 2015 and Ant-Man for July '15.

I don't understand the question.

Am I correct in remembering that Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers all came out in the same year?

Oh, I see. Actually, no, The Avengers came out the following year. Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk were both in 2008, IM2 was in 2010, Thor and Cap were '11, Avengers was '12, IM3 and Dark World were this year.

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

OK. Then I guess it's about the same. I guess I forgot that Avengers was all by itself. Maybe it was just that it came out with TDKR.

2011 also featured the release of X-Men: First Class. So there were three Marvel films that year, but only two of them were in the MCU.

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

It sounds like the movie is going to be called X-Men: Apocalypse (which sounds better anyway) according to Bryan Singer's Twitter and other media outlets. There seems to be a lot of "Age of" titles anyway recently (i.e. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction).

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

Here's a description of what is alleged to be the Days of Future Past post credits scene that reveals how they'll be handling Apocalypse in the next movie. Spoiler warning of course if this is legit.
