Seemingly out of nowhere, director Bryan Singer has announced the upcoming sequel to ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ titled ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ Additionally, he also revealed we’ll be seeing it on the big screen on May 27th, 2016. The character Apocalypse, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, made his debut in X-Factor #6. The world’s first mutant, En Sabah Nur was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC and used advanced technology to make himself an eternal conqueror, believing wholeheartedly in survival of the fittest. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about this film as we near the May 23rd, 2014 release date of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’

Acting as a sequel to both ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and ‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ includes cast members from both: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ while James McAvoy, Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till return from ‘X-Men: First Class.’

Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Peters and Josh Helman round out the film’s principal cast. Co-written, produced and directed by Bryan Singer, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is based on the 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline “Days of Future Past” by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. The film is scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
