With X-MEN: APOCALYPSE already confirmed to follow the upcoming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, producer Simon Kinberg has been speaking to SuperheroHype about introducing the villainous Apocalypse character to the cinematic X-world.

Kinberg said, “We want to tell the Apocalypse story and there’s massive scale and scope to telling that story. There’s going to be set pieces that I suspect are going to be bigger than anything we’ve ever done in an X-MEN movie before and he’s a great character. The biggest and funnest challenge of the APOCALYPSE movie to me is his character. How do you create a new villain for the X-MEN world that is as good as any villain that’s come before, is as compelling philosophically as Magneto, not just in his physical powers, but in his philosophical depth. APOCALYPSE is going to be a fun movie to write and make.”

To focus on one of the most ruthless villains of the X-Men world, Apocalypse, this next movie is believed to follow the timeline of the X-series younger cast members, such as James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, Nicholas Hoult’s Beast, and Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique.

At present, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is pencilled in for a 2016 release, whilst X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST gets a UK release on 22nd May.
