Big news in the Marvel world today: According to Coming Soon, Bryan Singer has announced some important details about the next X-Men franchise film—specifically, its official name and when we can expect to see it in theaters.
That's right—the next sequel in the X-Men franchise will officially be titled X-Men: Apocalypse, As for its release date, that's unfortunately pretty far off: It'll be released on May 27, 2016.
Though Singer didn't release any specific plot details or anything about what we should expect from the film, it's clear that it'll be based off of the Age of Apocalypse storyline from the comics. As Coming Soon explains:
The character's most popular storyline, "The Age of Apocalypse," ran in the X-Men books beginning in 1995. Set in a parallel reality formed by interference to the timeline, "The Age of Apocalypse" saw Professor Charles Xavier murdered before he could form the X-Men. Instead, a very different take on the team began with Magneto leading them through a post-apocalyptic America ruled by mutants.
We'll, of course, have more information on the film as it becomes available.
