20th Century Fox has handed out a May 27, 2016 release date for this follow-up, which puts it up against the recently announced Alice in Wonderland 2.
The Apocalypse character, created by Louise Simonson and Walter Simonson, started out as a main adversary to the X-Men comic book spin-off X-Factor, before crossing over into the X-Men comics. The character, whose birth name is En Sabah Nur, is actually the first mutant in human history, born in Egypt around the year 3,000 B.C.
Apocalypse possesses a number of powers, such as superhuman strength, teleportation and he can also manipulate energy. While he was born with a number of abilities, his powers were augmented after merging himself with Celestial alien technology.

We’ve yet to see Bryan Singer’s latest X-men adventure (although it looks blooming brilliant) but it’s been confirmed Days Of Future Past will not be to last of Singer’s mutant-filled endeavours.

It will be interesting to see how many survivors feature from the upcoming adventure, which is slated for cinemas 23rd May 2014 and how this plays into that Wolverine spinoff reuniting Hugh Jackman and James Mangold.

We're still a little way away from Bryan Singer bringing his original X-Men universe and the cast of X-Men: First Class in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it seems as though the director has some more tricks up his sleeves.
If Mr. Singer's Twitter feed is to be believed, we might be getting an appearance from Apocalypse in an X-Men movie slated for 2016.
First appearing in X-Factor #5 in 1986, Apocalypse has become one of the most popular villains of the X-Men series and has featured in the animated series, trading cards and video games. In 2008, he was ranked #3 in Marvel's Top 10 X-Men villains and was placed 24th in IGN's Greatest Comic Book Villans of All Time.

Next year, Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox are set to bring one of the most beloved X-Men tales to the big screen with X-Men: Days of Future Past, although it won't be a direct adaptation of the classic comic book story, with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine taking the place of Kitty Pryde as he goes back in time to try and prevent a catastrophic future for mutantkind. Speaking to Total Film (via Cbm), screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) has revealed the thinking behind the switch, and it's not down to the fact that Wolverine is the crown jewel in Fox's X-Men franchise... well, not entirely, anyway...
"We made the decision for a lot of reasons, some of them obvious and some of them more nuanced, to make it Wolverine who goes back in time. One reason is that he's the protagonist of the franchise, and probably the »

Last week saw the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. We at Thn commemorated the event with a retrospective look back at Oliver Stone’s classic film JFK. Fox however went down a different route, investigating the ‘bent bullet’ conspiracy, placing X-men mutant Magneto, played by Michael Fassbender, into the spotlight.

While our nation spent the past weekend memorializing the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination, the folks over at X-Men: Days of Future Past have apparently solved the long-standing mystery. None other than Erik Lensherr/Magneto (Ian McKellen/Michael Fassbender) appears to be responsible for the vile act, guiding the projectile in what's been called the "bent bullet" theory. Much like the real-life conspiracy, there's much more to the story than one simple misbehaving bullet. The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D May 23, 2014. Hit the jump to watch the video.

"Half a century ago, Magneto was implicated in the mutant plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. The events of that fateful day in November have been a point of contention between humans and the mutants ever since. After years of incarceration, do you think Magneto is guilty or innocent?

There are few actors working today quite as gifted as Tahar Rahim. A bold statement, perhaps, but his work in films such as A Prophet, The Past and Our Children are cementing him as one of the finest actors outside of Hollywood – and it’s the latter production, out now on DVD and Blu-ray, that we had the pleasure of catching up with him about.
Our Children, directed by Joachim Lafosee, is a devastating drama that sees Rahim play the male lead Mounir, married to Murielle (Émilie Dequenne) as the pair struggle to raise a family, with the consistent presence of doctor André (Niels Arestrup) disrupting matters somewhat. It’s emotional and upsetting, and Rahim discusses his research on the real life story this drama is based upon. He also tells us what makes a good script stand out to him, what it’s like teaming up once again with »

Last week it was revealed that 20th Century Fox had started negotiations with director James Mangold with a view to reteaming him with Hugh Jackman for a sequel to this year's X-Men solo effort The Wolverine, and now Jackman has spoken about the possibility of him reprising the role of Logan post X-Men: Days of Future Past for what would be his eighth outing as the character.
"I was on the phone with Jim Mangold last night,” Jackman tells Entertainment Weekly. “There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet... I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. I love the character, he’s kind of like a best friend to me, and I don’t ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted. »

Bigger is definitely better this year at the American Film Market, which winds up its 34th edition Wednesday as prominent projects with major stars racked up the strongest sales.
Among the key titles provoking robust buyer reaction: Lionsgate’s crime-thriller “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow; Lotus International’s Reese Witherspoon-Robert De Niro vehicle “The Intern,” with Nancy Meyers directing; FilmNation’s comedy “American Ultra,” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg; and Qed International’s “Term Life,” starring Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld.

In a recent interview with IGN, Jennifer Lawrence discussed where we will see Mystique in X-Men: Days of Future Past. At the end of X-Men: First Class she joined Magneto, but that's not where we'll find her in the upcoming sequel. Here's what Lawrence had to say when she was asked about it,
"We find Raven, she's split off from Eric and Charles and she's kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we've seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her."
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014, and it stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, and Evan Peters.
