Not about to let Spider-Man hog all the comic-book news of the day, 20th Century Fox and X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer have announced the next big mutant outing, with X-Men: Apocalypse now on the release schedule (across the pond, in any case) for May 27, 2016. #Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) December 5, 2013 What Singer's tweet explicitly refers to remains unclear at this point, but Apocalypse in the Marvel canon is an ancient and incredibly powerful mutant who has tangled with the X-Men on more than one occasion and and even turned Wolverine and Angel into his destructive associates for a time. Of course, don’t expect to see everything carried across word for word to the cinematic X-plot, since many changes happen between the page and the screen, but evil Wolverine? We'd watch that. There's also the Age Of Apocalypse storyline, which could be huge for X-Men »
