We’re not even near the release of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ and already the next installment in this cinematic universe, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ has been announced for release in May 2016!
Director Bryan Singer made the announcement on Twitter, though the film will hit more specifically on May 27, 2016.
Although details are scarce, the film will likely take it’s name from the comic book series, ‘Age of Apocalypse,’ which sees the arrival of one of the most powerful adversaries in the ‘X-Men’ universe, Apocalypse.
From the official description of the 1995 ‘Age of Apocalypse’ comic series by Scott Lobdell:
Charles Xavier is dead – killed twenty years in the past during a freak time-travel accident – and the world that has arisen in his absence is dark and dangerous indeed. The Darwinian conqueror Apocalypse rules with an iron fist, ruthlessly enforcing his dictum that only the strong shall survive – and in Apocalypse’s long shadow, hidden among a downtrodden humankind, are a group of ragtag freedom fighters led by Xavier’s oldest friend, Magneto: the Amazing X-Men! When Bishop, last survivor of the true Marvel Universe, locates the X-Men and explains how the world went wrong, these embittered mutants and their tenuous allies must risk everything – and undertake a dangerous and multi-pronged quest – to put things right!
Apocalypse was previously rumored to appear in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’
