‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ to Explore Mutant Origins With or Without Bryan Singer at the Helm

Even though the release of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ is over two years away, and we’re getting another ‘X-Men‘ movie before it (possibly two), that hasn’t stopped producer and co-writer Bryan Singer from dropping hints about what the film will be about.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Singer said that the film will be a direct sequel to ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ as events in that film will lead into ‘Apocalypse’ and that it “will also address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that’s always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers.”

He also notes that he hasn’t signed on to direct yet, but he would like to. “I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.” Perhaps Fox has cold feet after ‘Future Past’ turned into the second most expensive film they’ve ever made.

This wouldn’t be the first time that the ‘X-Men’ films have dived into the history of its characters as one gets the feeling that ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ was meant to kick of a series of ‘X-Men’ origin stories. But perhaps Singer wants to finally tell that story well. His ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ hits theaters this May 23, while ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is due May 27, 2016.
