Mere weeks into filming of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer and the cast have taken time away from the set and headed to San Diego to share a few details of what we can expect to see.
During the 20th Century Fox panel, Singer presented a few minutes of new footage – unfortunately only currently seen to those inside Hall H and not released online – and revealed that the movie takes place in 1983, 10 years after Days of Future Past, and sees the mutants now accepted in the world. However, a new sect has been born that believes the mutants are gods.
The footage showed Jean Grey waking up, claiming to have seen the end of the world. We also got teases of a dark turn for Professor X as well as narration from the titular big bad Apocalypse.
Oscar Isaac, who plays the villain, offered a little background;
“This world that we have is not what it should have been. In the comic books, he’s got so many powers, so many strange things that have never been specified. But his most important power is persuasion.”
Singer also shared the Comic-Con exclusive poster for the film;
X-Men: Apocalypse stars Olivia Munn, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters, Hugh Jackman, Oscar Isaac, James McAvoy, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, Lucas Till, Alexandra Shipp, Lana Condor and Ben Hardy, and is due out on 27 May 2016.
