Wolverine In X-Men: Apocalypse? Get The Latest Update
The bigger question entails whether we need a new Wolverine to factor into X-Men: Apocalypse, and whether the role should be recast. Bryan Singer has revealed that his plot will take place in the 1980s (much like Days took place in the ‘70s), and if they are going after younger versions of Storm and Cyclops, then shouldn’t Logan be younger, as well?

When you cast the likes of Sir Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender ad Jennifer Lawrence to play Magneto and Mystique, respectively, you can understand why nabbing a high-profile star is important.

X-Men: Apocalypse To Feature Another Epic Quicksilver Sequence
It didn't take long after the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past for the franchise filmmakers to realize that they would need to give Evan Peters' Quicksilver a much bigger role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Audiences truly fell in love with the wacky, speedy mutant this past summer, and the sequence where he helps Magneto break out of the Pentagon is considered by many to be the best in the film.

The Reason X-Men Hasn't Pushed Beast And Mystique's Romance More
In addition to reintroducing younger versions of the mutants known as Beast and Mystique, X-Men: First Class also did its part to establish a new dynamic between the two characters. Bonding over the fact that they couldn't show their true faces in public, the two of them sparked a romantic relationship that wound up getting kind of interrupted by the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The X-Men First Class Characters Might Have A Much Different Future Than We Thought
X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg recently explained that he sees X-Men: Apocalypse as ending a trilogy that began with First Class, “complete the stories” of young Mystique, Beast, Magneto and Professor Xavier. These comments naturally had us worried, fearing that these four integral characters would be somehow walking off into the sunset, but fortunately Kinberg has now set the record straight.

X-Men: Apocalypse Will Shift Focus To These Two Scary Mutants
Bryan Singer should have a lot of X-Men to juggle, no matter who pulls focus, in Apocalypse. He proved with Days of Future Past that he’s capable of the task. The new movie opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.

This Is Who James Marsden Wants For Young Cyclops
Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse will be starting production next year, which means that the next few months are going to be packed with all kinds of casting rumors.

Why X-Men Will Make Major Franchise Changes After Apocalypse
Through X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, the mutants known as Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) have gone through a hell of a lot. Beginning in the early 1960s, they wound up right smack dab in the middle of not only a massive societal change, but also the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Bryan Singer Will Definitely Direct X-Men: Apocalypse Despite Legal Problems
When it comes to making X-Men movies, nobody on Earth has the clout of Bryan Singer. He was the man put in charge of the direction of the franchise when it began all the way back in 2000; he made one of the best comic book movies of all time when he made X2: X-Men United in 2003; and earlier this year he introduced the series to its biggest critical and box office success yet with X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Apocalypse Will Probably Change Course With These Main Characters
Back in 2011, the X-Men franchise managed to pull off something kind of incredible. After spending years of establishing actors like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Rebecca Romijn as cinematic versions of Professor X, Magneto and Mystique, the series completely changed things up with the prequel X-Men: First Class. Now, three years later, the comic book movie franchise is ready to do a bit of recasting once again, although this time it will be with the characters like Jean Grey, Storm, Cyclops.

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.

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.
