Bryan Singer Spills On X-Men: Apocalypse
Director shares first details on next instalment in mutant superhero franchise...
The director - whose X-Men: Days Of Future Past is opening in May - told Total Film that the movie after that is going to have scenes of "mass destruction".
"We're going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants - the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago," he explained.
"But it'll be a contemporary movie - well, it'll take place in the '80s... The '80s is a period now - it's hard for me to believe that!
"Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There's definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle."
Singer is currently working on the storyline with producer Simon Kinberg writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.
The movie will apparently follow the adventures of the younger cast of mutants introduced in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class.
