X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will feature the “First Class” cast and not be an “X5″ with the original trilogy gang as some fans were hoping for. The news was revealed via Vulture, who reports that Bryan Singer will indeed direct the film, which releases on May 27, 2016. It will be a direct sequel set-up from the events of next year’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and technically serve as the third film in the burgeoning “First Class” series.
Happy or mad? Think young Jean and Cyclops will be involved? “Younger” Wolverine?
