X-MEN: APOCALYPSE to Take Place in the 1980s and Have More Mass Destruction Than Past X-Men Films


While X-Men fans are still waiting for another trailer for X-Men Days of Future Past, which is rumored to be coming on March 24, this doesn't take away from the fact that director Bryan Singer is already hyping up the next X-Men ensemble film, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Speaking with Total Film magazine, via Collider, Singer confirms the time period when X-Men: Apocalypse will take place in.

“We’re going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants – the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it’ll be a contemporary movie – well, it’ll take place in the ’80s… The ’80s is a period now – it’s hard for me to believe that!”

The director then touched on how X-Men: Apocalypse will be more of a mass destruction spectacle film than past X-films have been.

“Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle… I don’t want to get too specific, but we’ll introduce familiar characters in a younger time. That’ll be fun to show the audience. I call these movies in-between-quels. It’s a mind-fuck sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline!”

X-Men: Apocalypse is also being written by X2: X-Men United writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty and has a release date set for May 27, 2016.
