James McAvoy Will Finally Be Losing His Hair For X-Men: Apocalypse
James McAvoy has done a truly spectacular job establishing himself within the X-Men franchise as the younger version of Professor Charles Xavier – even under the pressure of living up to the performances of the great Patrick Stewart. But while the Scottish star has brought amazing emotional levels to the character in both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, one key aesthetic element that has been completely missing is the trademark chrome dome.

X-Men: Apocalypse Has Revealed A Start Date And Shooting Location
While the team of mutants known as the X-Men has classically had a home in a mysterious location in upstate New York, the production of X-Men movies is starting to find its own home in Montreal, Quebec. A great deal of the filming on Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past was done in the Canadian city, and perhaps in an attempt to duplicate the success of that movie, the franchise will be returning to make its the next installment - X-Men: Apocalypse.

Here's What Bryan Singer's Dropped Molestation Charges Might Mean For X-Men
Given the overwhelming success – both critically and financially – of Days of Future Past, you can understand why Fox would want to keep Singer in the fold for Apocalypse. He has a clear vision for the mutant universe, and has been working hard with screenwriter Simon Kinberg on the mapping of the steps that should take place in the story’s next chapter.

Bryan Singer Teases X-Men: Apocalypse's Opening Scene
As we learned earlier today, X-Men: Days of Future Past is now the highest grossing film of 2014 thus far - just beating out Captain America: The Winter Soldier. These are great times for the comic book movie franchise, and we couldn't be more pumped for the follow up. The problem is that we still have a long while to wait before we actually get to see it.

Juggernaut Almost Looked Like This In X-Men: Days Of Future Past
How this is better than the original look of the character, I’ll never understand. The X-Men movies are terrified of comic book costumes. These designs are impressive, but they are nowhere near what the heroes wore in the source material.

X-Men: Apocalypse's Precise Setting Has Been Revealed
Being set in the early 1980s opens up a lot of options for X-Men: Apocalypse, but easily the most significant is what can be done with younger versions of classic characters. Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm and other notable mutants were all flocking to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters around that time period, and presumably part of the plot of the new movie will have them enrolling and learning how to hone their powers

Bryan Singer May Not Direct X-Men: Apocalypse Due To Sex Abuse Allegations
Callous as this might sound, the issue in play here is less Bryan Singer’s guilt or innocence and more his time. Rumors have been swirling for awhile that the director will be able to provide irrefutable proof that he wasn’t in Hawaii when the abuse allegedly occurred and that he was at the London Superman Returns premiere when the other incident allegedly happened.

The Channing Tatum Gambit Movie Might Take Awhile
With the cast of 22 Jump Street currently making the press rounds, MTV took the opportunity to ask Channing Tatum about his possible first superhero movie. The actor confirmed that there have been discussions about him taking the part, but that there are still a lot of things that need to be done before the film can actually be made

Bryan Singer Confirmed To Return For X-Men: Apocalypse
X-Men: Apocalypse remains scheduled for May 27th, 2016, so Singer and company have only a few months to get cracking before they have to set a start date. Then again, X-Men: The Last Stand remains the biggest X-film of all-time, and that was totally rushed into production, so maybe there's a method to that madness.

X-Men: Apocalypse Will Feature Original Trilogy And First Class Mutants
What do we know about Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse? The answer is not very much. Few details have leaked out about the project since it was announced last December, and while we know that the movie will be set in the '80s and center on Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) , Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), we don't really know for sure which other mutants may be joining them.

After Gambit, 7 More Classic X-Men Characters Who Should Be Recast
During adaptation, such changes need to be made, which is why the stars of the X-Men comics are not the same as the stars of the X-Men movies. The liberties taken have, in many ways, robbed movie fans of a chance at seeing some engaging storylines while also cheating the hardcore comic fans out of some of the more treasured characters and moments of a fifty year old canon.

Could Wolverine Pop His Claws In X-Men: Apocalypse?
X-Men: Apocalypse would primarily focus on the First Class gang and be set in the 80's, the early claim announced. But it would also be a fairly epic film, and you can't do epic without Wolverine, can you? It seems like Apocalypse would be prepping the world for an X-film without Wolverine (the character has appeared in seven X-movies thus far), but we might not be done with Jackman yet.

Channing Tatum Confirms Talks To Play Gambit In An X-Men Movie
Gambit has been a fan-favorite of the X-books for years. He was portrayed on screen by box-office poison Taylor Kitsch in the standalone film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And while his take on the character wasn’t terrible, fans no doubt left that movie thinking that Gambit deserved better.

Gambit And Nightcrawler Could Appear In X-Men: Apocalypse
While some believe that the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past is re-writing the mythology, clearly some remnants remain, and some characters are stuck in their respective eras.

The Wolverine Sequel Reportedly Coming After X-Men: Apocalypse
Of course maybe Mangold is wondering what we all are: where does Days Of Future Past leave Wolverine? The Wolverine seems to occur in modern day, but the events of Days Of Future Past make Magneto and Professor X confront him in the post-credits sequence of The Wolverine, which is billed as “two years later.”

Bryan Singer Promises Mutant 'Mass Destruction' in X-Men: Apocalypse
“Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon," Singer said. 'There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle."

Hero Blend #2: The Uncanny, Fantastic Future Of The Fox Marvel Universe
The comic book movie world is split into many factions, with Warner Bros. holding all the rights to DC characters, Sony building their own little universe with Spider-Man, and Marvel Studios and Disney finding new ways to bring The Avengers together every couple of years. But some of the most interesting developments in the genre right now are happening over at 20th Century Fox.

Bryan Singer Apparently Will Direct X-Men: Apocalypse
Singer is on board. Do you think that’s a good hire for Apocalypse? Should Fox have tried to lure Matthew Vaughn back into the fray? Should they have tried a completely new voice? Or do you think that the studio loved what it saw out of Days, and just wants to maintain continuity?
