With Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past released later this year, the writer/producer/director has been speaking to EW about where things currently stand with Days of Future Past‘s follow-up, 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Singer said he’s “co-writing the story and I’m producing it. I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.”
It was previously thought of as a given that Singer would direct Apocalypse, but it appears it’s not quite a done-deal at this stage. I’d still expect to helm the flick, though.
When asked about what we can expect from X-Men: Apocalypse, Singer added, “It was also address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that’s always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and poweres.”
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for a 23rd May release, with X-Men: Apocalypse currently pencilled in for a 27th May, 2016 release.
