It's incredibly exciting to see the X-Men franchise blowing up again! X-Men: Days of Future Past looks incredible, and the recently announced X-Men: Apocalypse sounds intriguing. We still know very little about what the new movie will entail, but in a recent interview with EW, director Bryan Singer talks about it, and reveals that he's not yet signed on to direct it.
“I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it. 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.”
I'm pretty confident that he and the studio will strike a deal. If he wants to direct it, then he'll end up directing it. When asked if he will tease Apocalypse in X-Men: Days of Future Past, he said,
“I’m still deciding that. Something that happens in this movie causes what’s going to happen in that movie."
Well… if that's the case, I'm pretty sure that there's got to be some kind of tease. Singer goes on to point out some of the themes that will be a part of Apocalypse, saying,
"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."
Apocalypse will be released in theaters in 2016, and I can't help but think it's going to be epic. The future of this franchise seems like it's going to be gloriously awesome!
