X-Men: Apocalypse - What We Know So Far
The First Class TeamIt was reported a while back that X-Men: Apocalypse would take place in the 1980s – following up on the 1970s-set X-Men: Days of Future Past -- and would continue to explore the strengths and issues of the X-Men First Class team. This would mean that Apocalypse would lean on James McAvoy’s Professor Xavier, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique and the rest of the younger versions of these classic characters. Setting the movie in a time before Bryan Singer’s previous X-Men movies also meant that X-Men: Apocalypse could roll out earlier versions of characters we’d seen before, with fan-favorite Nightcrawler being one of the names that was mentioned earlier on as a leading candidate to return.
