Bryan Singer teases a look at first page of the X-Men: Apocalypse script

06.30.2014by:

Despite not knowing if events in his personal life will affect his directing job on X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, Bryan Singer is still moving forward with scripting the follow-up to this summer's hugely successful X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Based on the title alone, we know the movie will feature the titular villain Apocalypse and will not be directly connected to the stinger scene from DAYS OF FUTURE PAST featuring the character while he was a young man in ancient Egypt.

But, some of the film will take place in Egypt as indicated by the glimpse of the first page of the X-MEN: APOCALYPSE script treatment that Singer posted to his new Instagram page.

While four horsemen can be glimpsed in the X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST stinger scene, this is our first true confirmation that the supervillain team will appear in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. It is unknown exactly who will comprise the team as it has shifted countless times over the years, but the Mutants representing Death, Famine, Pestilence, and War have included Archangel, Gambit, Wolverine, Psylocke, Sunfire, Caliban, Plague, and many others. I would think it would be interesting for this to be the way to pull Wolverine back into the mix and give Hugh Jackman the chance to play a more villainous role.

All we know is that Singer, Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty, and Dan Harris are hard at work to make this movie as good, if not better, than X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. That is a tall order to fill but if anyone can do it, these guys can.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is slated to open May 27, 2016.

Hopefully we get a good half hour of Jennifer Lawrence! She is pivotal in any X-Men storyline.

Channing Tatum is one of the Four Horsemen, yes? Can Jonah Hill join him?

I would be very dissapointed if Singer didn't return to direct.

I hope Jesus Christ: Apocolypse happens first so I don't have to read how "amazing" another subpar Xmen movie is two years from now.

Days of Future Past was excellent and here's to Apocalypse being the same quality.

Can't wait for this!

Admittedly I don't know anything about the comics but seeing as Gambit was one of the horseman I wonder if Channing Tatum might appear in this movie or is this set before Gambit is an adult?

I don't remember anyone else being in the 4 horsemen - or the guys mentioned above. I thought it was sinister for sure and some others

Sinister was NEVER a Horseman... He only worked with A, helping him to create them, but with his own agenda...
Still, he's a very important part of A's mythology, like Ozymandias, so he should be here...
On the other hand Rachel was a very important part of DoFP, and we know how it turned out in the films...
