X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

Sensing it has a hit on its hands with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” 20th Century Fox is prepping another installment in the blockbuster superhero franchise titled ”X-Men: Apocalypse” that will hit theaters on May 27, 2016, according to Exhibitor Relations.

Sensing it has a hit on its hands with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” 20th Century Fox is prepping another installment in the blockbuster superhero franchise titled ”X-Men: Apocalypse” that will hit theaters on May 27, 2016, according to Exhibitor Relations.

Director Bryan Singer confirmed the sequel in a vague tweet that read “#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!”

20th Century Fox is clearly confident about its “X-Men” franchise, as the new movie will directly compete against Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” sequel. The first film grossed more than one billion dollars worldwide, though it was reviled by critics.

Wow, FOX must very confident that DOFP will be a hit since they are already announcing a sequel!

First "Days of Future Past" and now "Age of Apocalypse"? Bryan Singer, I could kiss you right now.

I think they're counting their chickens before they're hatched. But I really like the X-Men movies, so I do hope this happens.

At this point, the only thing preventing DoFP from wiping the floor with every other comic book movie ever made is some kind of world-wide cataclysm.

I was never much of a fan of the X-Men. I don't know anything about sentinels or Trask, and even I am psyched as hell for it.

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

I firmly believe Bryan Singer was born to make X-Men movies. My only question is will DOFP top X2 (still one of the greatest comic book movies ever, IMO)?

If he's also going to Direct AOA, I may die of a fanboy aneurism.

Do we know it's going to be that specific storyline? Apocalypse was around for quite a while before that story, after all. Although I guess it's the most prominent story involving him, so it's a reasonable conjecture. But it's not actually confirmed as far as I can tell.

I wonder if this is the "X-Force" project re-named "X-Men" for brand recognition purposes?

That's a good point. And would they really do an alternate universe story on the heels of an alternate/possible future storyline? Unless they tied them together somehow.

Hmm, what other major storylines are there about Apocalypse?

Re: X-Men: Apocalypse announced for May 2016

X-Cutioner's Song, although that's heavily tied up with Cable/Stryfe so they'd have to retool it to make it work.

I always found Apocalypse to be more interesting in concept than practice, though. He never comes across as being very smart, despite all his bleating about "survival of the fittest."

Also, the Twelve, although that didn't seem to go in the directions it was originally hinted to go in. Isn't comic writing fun?

It could be an original story using him made for the movies.
I mean, the next movie is Days of Future Past, but mostly in concept, not execution. They tend not to follow the books TOO closely (Which I actually like)

I wonder whether they plan to use the original cast or the cast from First Class.

I'd imagine they're scheduling the shoot in such a way that if DOFP flat-out bombs, they'll be able to cancel production and only really eat the pre-production costs - and said pre-production is an investment any studio'd be crazy not to make under the circumstances. So, as long as they're prepping, why not put on a confident face and spark fans' interest?
