If you thought director Bryan Singer was done teasing X-Men, you are sadly mistaken. The director behind X-Men Days of Future Past was known for throwing small bits of the film before the latest installment hit theaters. Now that the film is out, Bryan Singer is moving forward with next installment in the Marvel franchise: X-Men Apocalypse. The film will bring one of the X-Men's most notorious enemies to the silver screen. The film is set to debut in May of 2016; but Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Michael Doughtery and Dan Harris are already working on Apocalypse's script.
Today, the director released an image on his Instigram account featuring the page to Apocalpyse. The picture did not show much. Only a close up to the movie's script. As viewers can see, the pictures features the opening scene to the film. While the details do cover the entire picture, there is enough to analyze where the movie starts. The script shows that Apocalypse will open in Egypt and feature a battle on the Nile that involves Apocalypses' primary soldiers: The Four Horsemen. Aside from the involvement of the Horsemen, the only thing that is clear is that the scene will feature a variety of mutant powers; either from the Horsemen or Apocalypse himself. It is not much, but this certainly leaves an impression. It is doubtful that moviegoers will get another look at the script, so all we can do at the moment is guess just what happens in this scene and what will happen in the rest of the film.
While the story details are scarce, X-Men: Apocalypse is being set in the 80's and the film will following the cast of X-Men: First Class. Expected to return is James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. While the movie will follow the First Class characters, there is speculation that film will also feature characters from the previous trilogy.
