Director Bryan Singer shares ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ production art

Singer is due to start shooting the next 'X-Men' film this spring in Toronto

Director Bryan Singer has offered fans a glimpse at the visuals for the next X-Men film by sharing some production art on Instagram.

At the time of writing (February 17) Singer has only shared one image, but the director promised that he will post more production art on his Instagram when he has time.


Singer is due to start shooting the next X-Men film, titled X-Men: Apocalypse, this spring in Toronto, Canada. The film is set for release on May 27, 2016.

Last month (January) he unveiled three new cast members for X-Men: Apocalypse. Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner – Sansa Stark in the HBO fantasy series – will play Jean Grey; The Tree of Life‘s Tye Sheridan will portray Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp, who starred as Aaliyah in a recent US TV biopic, has been cast as Storm.

They join returning cast members James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence and Evan Peters, as well as Oscar Isaac, who has been cast as Apocalypse, the villain that gives the film its title. Rose Byrne is also confirmed to be reprising her role as CIA agent Moira MacTaggert from 2011’s X-Men: First Class and Hugh Jackman has recently hinted that he will be returning as Wolverine.

Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart has recently confirmed that he will not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, but also said that his fellow original X-Men star Ian McKellen “certainly” will have a role.
