Villain in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' to proselytize and have others join his cause

According to Comic Book Movie on Saturday, screenwriter of "X-Men: Apocalypse" Simon Kinberg explained that the comic book movie would entail a Roland Emmerich disaster-like format that will to be analogous to the "Independence Day" film. The Apocalypse character would also be responsible for the contribution of converting other characters to the whims of a justifiable belief system. Kinberg mentioned that Apocalypse would be on an even more grander scale than the Magneto character.

In an interview with James McAvoy at the black carpet event premiere of the film "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in New York, he had mentioned he had never been in contact with Kinberg about his vision of Apocalypse. The Professor Xavier actor does have the belief the sequel will contribute to a situation that is "biblical" in nature. This film would likely give a vision of how the mutants can tend to date back to the "origin of the species." Kinberg also talked about how this could lead to the introduction of more younger versions of the "established X-Men characters."

Producer Hutch Parker also mentioned the comparison between "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "X-Men: Apocalypse" as far as how one introduces a plethora of characters to the film and what they are able to do as opposed to a film that entails an epic, disastrous situation where the stakes are considerably high. Kinberg mentioned that Apocalypse isn't destroying the world for the sake of doing so, but for the sake that he deems it serves a reasonable purpose.

This is par for the course of most villains in films these days, but the 5,000 year old mutant is so philosophical in nature that his beliefs may influence other characters. Magneto even gives convincing arguments to Professor Charles Xavier proving him numerous times that humans have an extreme prejudice against their own kind. It's no wonder even the audience may sympathize with Erik.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is open in theaters everywhere and "X-Men: Apocalypse" is scheduled to be released May 27, 2016.
