We’re just entering the final couple of weeks stretch until the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past and we’re already starting prep on the next installment X-Men: Apocalypse with James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), and Nicholas Hoult (Hank) already on board.
According to EW X-Men: Apocalypse will be loosely based on the 1990 alternate universe comic storyline Age of Apocalypse, the events of which will be influenced by what will be happening in X-Men: Days of Future Past in May.
You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You’re dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?”
We’ll keep you posted on the latest for X-Men: Apocalypse starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult.
