X-Men: Apocalypse sequel to shoot in 2017 with Bryan Singer directing?

11.17.2015

X-Men: Apocalypse Bryan Singer Oscar Isaac Alexandra Shipp Banner

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE doesn't hit theaters until next year, but apparently Fox may already be getting the ball rolling on the sequel. During an interview with Journal De Montreal, Mel's Studio head Michel Trudel revealed that director Bryan Singer and company will return to the offices of the Montreal-based production house in November of 2016, and that principal photography on the follow-up will kick off in early 2017.

Trudel told the site that "It was a miracle that we managed to attract an X-Men movie [DAYS OF FUTURE PAST] in Montreal in 2013. To convince Fox to return for a second [APOCALYPSE] and now a third is simply amazing."

If this is the plan, Bryan Singer is going to be very busy next year. Besides doing X-MEN: APOCALYPSE reshoots in January and making the usual promo rounds for the upcoming mutant flick, in September the filmmaker also announced that a 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA movie will be his next directorial effort.

As to when the sequel might be released, it could be the untitled Fox/Marvel film that has been set to open on July 13, 2018. The rumor is Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have already signed on for more X-Men movies, so they'll probably be back for the follow-up, as well as some of the newcomers to the series, like Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler). While none of this is officially confirmed, who would you like to see be the main villain in the X-MEN: APOCALYPSE sequel?

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is due out on May 27, 2016.

Obviously we don't know exactly where each character will be at the end of Apocalypse for where they might head next, but I'm guess something in this film will significantly push Xavier and Magneto apart. They weren't exactly best buddies at the end of Days Of Future Past, but I hope to see Fassbender heading full villain pretty soon with his brotherhood of disgruntled Mutants, and i guess McAvoy probably needs to be losing his hair somewhat.
I'd rather it wasn't Singer running the show, I'm

I'd rather it wasn't Singer running the show, I'm not totally convinced by some of the casting in Apocalypse yet, and if that movie doesn't launch to general acclaim I can see many of their plans getting rejigged, but DOFP turned out pretty decent (better than I thought it would be) so I'll certainly give it a chance.
If they're going to keep ticking through the decades, the next film after Apocalypse should land us in the 1990s. I'm expecting far too many pockets, straps, gigantic guns with knives attached and at least a couple of swords per character. Also muscles on top of muscles.

Sigh

So much for someone other than Singer to direct the next set of films. Work one characters for once. Tired of the same characters getting highlighted.

I'd like to see them do a story with John Silk and his I-men as the villians. The idea of hunting mutants for organ harvesting to power up human mercs for hire would make a dark and interesting film, mutant massacre would be another interesting one to film also.

They've kind of ran into a wall with a bigger, badder villain. I always thought an Apocalypse movie should have been a two part X-Men film. But since it's not, logically they have to introduce a Mr.Sinister, Omega Red or even Mastermind. Mr.Sinister could be a stand alone character, or lead back into Apocalypse, saying that he was his first horseman and seeing that Apocalypse is out of the way, seizes his opportunity. Omega Red could revolve around the second world war, is awoken somehow like

Omega Red could revolve around the second world war, is awoken somehow like Captain America by the Russians. And a Mastermind story line could lead back to the Hellfire Club which then ends this four part series, I guess.

Go big or go home.

They keep trying to outdo themselves so the only bigger villain I can think of is Onslaught or Dark Phoenix but I wouldn't be interested in them too much.
I think the Brood would be unique.

The smart thing to do would be to make it a two parter that gets shot back to back. There is an existing script for a New Mutants movie that could be divided into two films by cramming a lot of characters in, as these films tend to do.

If I go in to a movie subtitled Apocalypse (after a major X-Men villain) and find out Toad is the main villain...I think I'd be disappointed at a minimum. :o)

I think you guys may have missed where it says "sequel" at the end of the sentence ;)

Apocalypse is probably the biggest and baddest foe of the X-men. Anything else that comes after would seem like Toad in comparison :)
