Bryan Singer had barely hit the tweet button on his big reveal that X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit cinemas in 2016 before several websites popped up claiming to have the inside scoop on plot details, most notably a report about the end credit sequence of X-Men: Days of Future Past setting up the next film by having an alien Apocalypse crash landing on Earth from outer space before "merging" with Michael Fassbender's Magneto.
Now, it seemed odd that plot details were being revealed for a film that took everyone by surprise with its announcement, but if Singer is to be believed, the report appears to be little more than speculation anyway. Taking to Twitter again, Singer has put fears to rest over an updated origin for the 5000-year-old mutant, stating that "Apocalypse is not an alien. :)". However, »

Announced out of the blue last week was the latest film in the X-Men cinematic saga, X-Men: Apocalypse. The news of the 2016 release broke on Bryan Singer's Twitter feed, and was subsequently confirmed, and now one or two more details have started to emerge.
Firstly, it's definite that Bryan Singer will be directing the new film. He's currently still working on next year's X-Men: Days Of Future past, but once he's locked that, he'll be onto the new X-Men film.
This time, though, Singer won't be juggling the old and new X-Men casts, as he is in Days Of Future Past. Instead, the focus of X-Men: Apocalypse will be on the First Class ensemble, led by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender (some »
Last week Bryan Singer shook up X-Men fans everywhere by announcing that X-Men: Apocalypse would be hitting theatres in 2016. Shortly after that a rumor hit the web concerning a possible end credits scene in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I’m going to slap a big ole Spoiler Warning on this. Yes, the tweet from Singer that follows debunks it, but elements of it may be true; so proceed with caution.
FirstShowing.net broke the following scoop:
… the [X-Men: DoFP] credits bumper jumps back to the past with a young Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) in a ramshackle house in the desert eating dinner, clearly on the run from all the authorities who want to bring him down. While using a well outside to get some water, the young Magneto sees something fall from the night sky and crash to Earth nearby. Upon inspecting the impact zone, he encounters what is described as »

The news just keeps on coming in regard to the X-Men franchise this week. The site ‘Vulture’ has revealed that Bryan Singer, having finished up next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, will definitely be behind the camera on the next film, X-Men: Apocalypse, which is being planned for a 2016 release. The second of the two back-to-back X-films by Singer is still in the scripting stage but expect it to go into pre-production mode in 2014.
Singer also talked to Vulture about the cast of the new movie. Apparently, X-Men: Apocalypse will be a direct sequel to events set up in the post-credit sequence of X-Men: Days of Future Past—which will feature an appearance by Apocalypse himself »

After director Bryan Singer revealed last week that X-Men: Apocalypse is coming to theaters in 2016, a report surfaced that revealed how Apocalypse will be introduced during a mid-credits sequence in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
That report stated that Apocalypse will be an "alien form" that visits Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Today, the filmmaker clears the air by revealing that Apocalypse is, in fact, not of alien descent.
#Apocalypse is not an alien. :) #XMenApocalypse

However, that is just one of several details included in last week's story, which revealed exactly what happens in the mid-credits sequence, where Apocalypse merges with Magneto, leading into X-Men: Apocalypse. Does this discrepancy mean that the entire description is false? Or, perhaps, the alien origin of Apocalypse is the only thing that isn't true about the report.
Despite being one of Marvel’s most insanely popular characters, Wolverine has struggled a bit on the big screen. Sure, Hugh Jackman defied expectations when he first signed on to play the Canadian mutant. After, in the comics, the guy is short and stocky whereas Jackman is over six feet tall. He fit the ensemble in the X-Men trilogy of films quite nicely, playing off James Marsden’s Cyclops as both vied for Jean Grey’s love only to both watch her die in X-Men: Last Stand.
If there was any character ready for a spinoff film, it was Wolverine but X-Men Origins; Wolverine was a bit of a messy disappointment, overstuffed with other mutants and telling his poignant backstory. Still, the character was tantalizing for 20th Century Fox so they went back to the drawing board – and the comics – for inspiration offering up this summer’s The Wolverine, »

When the "Apocalypse" arrives, Bryan Singer will be there to steer it. The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director is set to return at the helm of the blockbuster franchise for "X-Men: Apocalypse," the recently-announced sixth film in the big-screen superhero series that's been slated to hit theaters in 2016, according to Vulture. This would mark Singer's fourth "X-Men" film after "Days of Future Past" (scheduled to hit theaters next summer) and the first two entries in the series, "X-Men" and "X2." On a related note, Singer has taken it upon himself to debunk rumors that Apocalypse - the titular big bad »

Earlier today, it was announced that director Bryan Singer will be back for X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be a direct sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past. This will mark the first time Bryan Singer has directed back-to-back movies in the franchise since X-Men in 2000 and X2: X-Men United in 2003. It will be his next project, with work starting immediately.

While story details have not been revealed at this time, it is confirmed that, much like X-Men: Days of Future Past, events will be taking place in the 1970s. It was also confirmed earlier today that the X-Men: First Class cast »

Last week, a report surfaced claiming that the after-credits scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past would feature - stop reading now if you don't want to know - an "alien form" crashing to Earth from the night's sky, seemingly possessing Magneto in the process. Since then, worried fans have been wondering whether this means that the time travelling mutant would be alien in origin, but X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to kill that sort of speculation before it can even get properly started. Does this also mean the description is false? Stay tuned... #Apocalypse is not an alien. :) #XMenApocalypse— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) December 9, 2013 »

While there wasn't much info to go on, many jumped to the conclusion that the X-Men: Days of Future Past director would also be at the helm of this upcoming 20th Century Fox Marvel mutant adventure. Since this short announcement was made, the director has remained silent about X-Men: Apocalypse. Soon after, a spoiler filled look at X-Men: Days of Future Past's end credit sequence revealed that it would tie directly into this sixth X-Men adventure. It also gave away a major plot point (to be spoiled: clickHere
Still, at that point, nothing had been confirmed by the studio, including who was directing, who was writing, and who was starring in the movie. That changes this morning, as Bryan Singer has been confirmed to direct X-Men: Apocalypse. »
When X-Men director Bryan Singer tweeted the news that X-Men: Apocalypse would be coming out in 2016, I think most of us just assumed that he would be directing the film, but there was always the chance he might end up just producing it since it wasn't really specified.
So in case there was any doubt, Vulture reports that Singer is most definitely directing the new X-Men movie. The site also confirms that the movie will be a direct sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and that it will "focus strictly on the younger McAvoy-Fassbender cast." So as previously rumored, don't expect any of the original cast members to return.
It's been reported Days of Future Past will tease Apocalypse in the post credits sequence of the the film. You can read more Spoiler filled info about that here if you want.
I'm happy to hear that Singer is jumping »

Out of the blue, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer revealed last week that another franchise installment is coming in 2016. The X-Men: Apocalypse teaser preceded news that co-writer Simon Kinberg had signed a three-year deal with Twentieth Century Fox to help guide their own Marvel Cinematic Universe by writing/producing stories that span multiple films.
It all begins with Days of Future Past next summer, a time travel story that involves both the casts of the original X-Men trilogy and the younger cast from X-Men: First Class. Rumors last week pointed towards X-Men: Apocalypse serving as a direct followup that would aim to bring back nearly everybody, along with a few new faces, but as we ...

Last week, news of a sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, titled X-Men: Apocalypse, hit the internet and sent fans into overdrive. Simon Kingberg was announced to be building a Marvel Universe of sorts with the franchise and speculation and rumors ran rampant about which direction the film would head in. Today, thanks to Vulture, we have a few more details confirmed and can finally start to get a sense of what Fox is planning for everyone’s favorite mutants.
For starters, unsurprisingly, Bryan Singer is confirmed to be back in the director’s chair. Secondly, thanks to First Showing, we also know how the film will tie into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Be warned, there are spoilers in this information but if you’re curious to know how the two films play into each other, check out First Showing’s quote below:

Twentieth Century Fox is hot enough on X-Men: Days of Future Past to go ahead and lay claim to not only a release date for the next X-Men movie (May 27, 2016), but it's also giving up its story's roots by revealing the title, X-Men: Apocalypse. This, of course, referring to the popular Age of Apocalypse storyline for the comics, though to be fair they may be borrowing elements of that storyline and not adapting the entire thing, a la Days of Future Past. Our own Marvel expert John Gholson recently wrote about the Apocalypse storyline since director Bryan Singer was recently asked about it, alluding to the fact that Apocalypse will be set up in Days of Future Past. Here's how Gholson described the character Apocalypse as well: Apocalypse has an incredibly...

While "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is still months away, attention over the weekend remained firmly on the next film in the franchise after that - "X-Men: Apocalypse" which opens in 2016.
Following on from the announcement of the project on Friday, and yesterday's spoiler-filled reveal of the mid-credits stinger during 'Future Past' that sets up the next film, this morning sees two further bits of information come to light.
First up Vulture has confirmed that Singer will be returning as director on "X-Men: Apocalypse," his first back-to-back "X-Men" directing gigs since the first two films over a decade ago.
The other big question though is who will be involved? The younger actors introduced in "X-Men: First Class" (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, etc.) are contracted for three films and are locked in to return.

Warning: This article contains spoilers some readers may wish to avoid.
X-Men: Apocalypse will reportedly branch away from forthcoming movie Days of Future Past and focus solely on the First Class cast.
According to Vulture, X-Men: Apocalypse will not feature the senior members of the franchise's cast - including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry - many of whom will appear in next summer's Days of Future Past.
Villain Apocalypse, a Marvel Comics character who first appeared in a mid-'80s issue of X-Factor, will be set up in the post-credits sting for Days of Future Past, »
After Bryan Singer dropped his megaton announcement last week many wondered if he would be directing the next entry in the X-Men series. After all, he didn’t handle X3, and he served as a storywriter and producer for First Class, so he’s shown that he’s not necessarily tied at the hip to the director’s chair. Vulture is now reporting that he is, indeed, set to helm X-Men: Apocalypse. This would mark the first time the director has done back-to-back X-Men films since he did the first two.
Also of note in the report is that the next film will center on the younger stars/characters in the X-universe. With First Class, they made the first X-Men film that didn’t star series leads Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, or Halle Berry. It instead focused on Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and other newcomers to the franchise. »

Late last week, we brought you the news that the mutant-filled -X-men franchise would continue past the upcoming time-travelling sequel X-men: Days Of Future Past. Another epic adventure is in the works with X-men: Apocalypse slated for summer 2016. While little was known of the plot, it was expected Bryan Singer would return to direct the film picking right after the events of his upcoming epic uniting the cast of the original X-men trilogy (and spinoff’s) with those of Matthew Vaughn’s First Class.
Well, we can now officially confirm Singer will back at the helm and he will dive straight into shooting once press and promotional duties are complete on Dofp. However, it’s expected Apocalypse will focus primarily on the younger cast led by James McAvoy’s Professor Xavier and Michael Fassbender’s conflicted Erik Lensherr.
