Updated: Simon Kinberg says next X-Men film will be set in the '90s
Updated with actual quote from Kinberg below.
JoBlo.com's own Paul Shirey got a chance to speak with producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg at the press junket for the latest installment in the mutant film franchise, and he revealed that the next X-Men flick will take place in the 1990's.
“Bryan and I watch a lot of the animated show actually when we want to get inspired and are in the conceptual phase of working on these films. So yes, in all honesty, we have jumped-people forget that X-MEN FIRST CLASS was ’63 and then DAYS OF FUTURE was ’73, this is ’83, I don’t know it would be exactly ten years on the next one, but the idea would be to explore the ‘90’s in the next one.”
Paul's full interview with Kinberg will be up soon, so be on the lookout for that.
This shouldn't come as a huge surprise, since all of the First Class movies are set in different decades, but I am very curious as to exactly what year the movie will take place. Do you think the mutants will be rocking early '90s flannel shirts in the next film, or late '90s frosted tips?
X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will arrive in theaters on May 27th.
