X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has shared a spectacular picture from the film’s Egyptian-themed set. Check it out below.
Singer started shooting X-Men: Apocalypse in Toronto in April and has branded the sequel “a big monster of a movie” that “really feels different” to previous films in the franchise. It’s set for release on May 27, 2016.
X-Men: Apocalypse introduces a host of new cast members, including Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers aka Cyclops, former EastEnders actor Ben Hardy as Angel and Alexandra Shipp as Storm. Meanwhile, Dawn Of The Planets Of The Apes star Kodi Smit-McPhee will portray a young Nightcrawler.
They join returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult 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 hinted that he will be returning as Wolverine.
Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart has 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.
