X-Men: Apocalypse Announced, Releases in 2016

Written in



X-Men: Days of Future Past does not release until May 23, 2014 but Bryan Singer dropped a bomb on Twitter revealing the next X movie announcing that X-Men: Apocalypse will release in 2016.

Looks like Days of Future’s Past is going to be the beginning of something bigger if this tweet does indeed confirm that Apocalypse will be coming to the X universe in 2016. When you were growing up reading comics did you ever, truly think that we would ever get a movie based on Days of Future Past or actually have Apocalypse on screen?

One would assume the film would be based on the Age of Apocalypse storyline which had Professor X’s son Legion travel back in time to kill Magneto but kills Xavier instead. This creates an alternate timeline where Magneto takes up his friends crusade of peace. This is when Apocalypse chooses to take over the world.
