X-MEN: APOCALYPSE: Michael Fassbender Says There is a Certain Story He Still Wants to Explore With MAGNETO



Currently in the scripting process, X-Men: Apocalypse is deep in development by producer and writer Simon Kinberg and by rumored returning X-Men director Bryan Singer.

Over on IGN.com, the news outlet caught up with Magneto actor Michael Fassbender who teased that there's a comic book story arc for the villain he is looking to explore in X-Men: Apocalypse.

"Well, I can't really tell you... I've had these conversations with Simon and there's a certain strand of his story that I think is pretty interesting and would like to explore, if we could."

Trying to figure out which Magneto story line is being teased is nearly impossible since the villain has been around since 1963 and has since been a major player through Marvel's comic book universe. Fassbender also confirmed that there is no finished script draft yet, but he's excited to eventually see it.

"Yeah, I mean, I haven't got a script or anything yet, but I'm always excited to see where Simon Kinberg's going to go with the next X-Men. X-Men's been great to me and allowed me to do so much... So I had a good chat with Simon when we were on our way to Moscow, and we tossed around some ideas on the plane over there. So I'm pretty excited to see how it all comes together."

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to release in theaters on May 27, 2016 and should start filming in the first half of 2015.
