X-Men: DOFP screenwriter Simon Kinberg explains the after credits scene

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST having an post-credits scene shouldn't be a spoiler. After all, it is the norm for a comic book movie, and the sequel has already been announced. I certainly won't reveal the sequence here, but X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST scribe Simon Kinberg recently explained the after credits scene in an interview with IGN. Obviously this is a major spoiler, so if you haven't seen the new movie yet do not, I repeat, DO NOT scroll past the spoiler buffer. You've been warned.

Simon Kinberg says the character teased in the post-credits scene is the super villain Apocalypse, but also says it's a younger version of the character, and a different actor will play him for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.

The post-credit sequence is a tease into what will be the Apocalypse movie. Now the Apocalypse you see that young boy may not be the actor who plays the character in our movie. Its a deep back story glimpse into the character, but our movie doesnt take place in ancient Egypt and will likely not star a young boy Apocalypse.

The flashback scene also teased Apocalypse's Four Horsemen, and I really hope his super villain team will play a big part in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has a lot of people very excited for future X-MEN flicks (check out JimmyO and Chris Bumbray's reviews), and I for one can't wait to see what they'll do with Apocalypse.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST opens today, and X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2016.

There's potential for a "wonder if this 'young boy' he is referring to had a private casting session with Singer" joke here, but I think I'll pass.

Mindfucker

A bunch of high school kids were sitting in front of me and looked at each after this sequence, perplexed as to who the hooded pyramid builder was. I just looked at my buddy, smiled, nodded, and so they could all hear me, said: "Shia LaBeouf... Awesome."
And in walked total confusion.

I'm excited...I just hope.......

I just hope they finally do [link] Worthington the 3rd some justice. I absolutely hated the way he was handled in Last Stand. He is one of my favorite characters and what they put on screen was terrible. I love Ben Foster in nearly all of his other roles but Angel he is NOT. Go ahead and give me thumbs down, I don't care, but I want Angel recast. Why not they recast Gambit. Both of these actors did an excellent job in Lone Survivor by the way.

Great End Scene Tease

In terms of Scope it seemed WAAAAAAAAAAY BIGGER and more EPIC than the Thanos reveal....however the character reveal sucked. Child apocalypse wasnt what I was expecting (or hoping for) so I was underwhelmed by the character design. Was hoping to see Apocalypse as we know him usually. So in character regards....Thanos was better.

but because of the complaints of each, id say they are on equal grounds in terms of awesome.

I thought it was a great tease leading into the next film. Can't wait to see Arch Angel and if Apocalypse is half as great as Days of Future Past, then we are in for an amazing time.
