Bryan Singer on the X-Men: Apocalypse scenes which didn't make the final cut

Bryan Singer X-Men: Apocalypse deleted scenes

If you'd rather not know what won't be in the film before you see it, consider the following to contain spoilers. The release of Bryan Singer's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is nearly upon us and Singer is already talking about which scenes didn't make it to the final cut of the film. For those of you who are hoping for something similar to the Rogue Cut of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Singer confirmed to Fandango that there won't be an alternate cut of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE this time around.

There will be nothing like the Rogue Cut or anything like that. I'm not a big fan of director's cuts or extended editions, I never have been. In the case of Apocalypse, I removed what would be considered a conventional amount from the movie to protect what we call the collective experience of the feature theatrically. How it feels pace wise and movement wise.

The home-entertainment release for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will of course contain the customary deleted scenes and Singer gave out a few hints on what we can expect. Lana Condor, who plays Jubilee, didn't have as big of a presence in the film as some would have hoped, but we'll get more Jubilee on the Blu-ray/DVD, including a scene in which Jubilee uses her powers. Although some fans are left wondering why scenes like this are cut, Singer says that it's all about keeping the film from being too slow-paced for the audience. "It's strange for the audience sometimes because they say, 'It's a good scene, why did you remove it?' But if you sat in a theater and watched it with all those scenes back in, it may seem good, but slow. And I don't want the audience to feel that." Another scene which Bryan Singer had to cut down was the mall sequence, which included a nod to Robin Williams' MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON.

There was also a significant moment that sadly I had to cut. When they’re moving through the mall and Nightcrawler remarks about the other people that “they don’t fear us.” And he thinks the mall is this paradise, and that was my homage to Moscow on the Hudson, when Robin Williams came over to America during the height of the Cold War and saw a Bloomingdales and thought it was a temple. But no, it was just an ‘80s mall!

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will hit theaters on May 27, 2016 so make sure to check out reviews from our own Eric Walkuski and Chris Bumbray!

Most of the Mall scene being cut from the film, we lost the Dazzler reference along with it !
And his argument about why he doesn't like director's cut is BS ! There's this little thing called seamless branching... You can have both cuts of the film, It's the whole point of the extended HOME release: you can sit through longer cuts at home.

Hmmm... I wonder who he decided to cut out this time and make a extended cut later.
