The “X-Men: Apocalypse” movie is making some serious noise before its hugely anticipated release. After the tremendous success of “Days of the Future Past,” Bryan Singer and his team have made a movie that is supposed to be the biggest ever.
Simon Kinberg, who is writing the screenplay for the “Apocalypse,” was quoted in Cinema Blend as saying:
“I think in some ways, it’s the biggest X-Men film we’ve done, both in terms of the external stakes — we’ve never done one of these before where there’s an extinction-level event for the whole world — and I think it’s the biggest emotionally, too. Because the situation is so heightened, the dynamic between the main characters is as heightened and intense as it’s ever been”
Kinberg, who has worked on all the X-men films since the “Last Stand” will also be producing the film. He gamely answered questions from fans in an open Q&A session on twitter with the hashtag #AskKinberg.
The Q&A has certainly raised more expectations. Ever since the trailer, the hype from the movie just gets bigger every time. With Kinberg’s statement, the movie looks to be a battle that has never been witnessed before.
“Apocalypse” will see the emergence of the villain of the same name, who will be played by Oscar Isaac of “Inside Llewyn Davis” fame. However, according to International Business Times, Isaac suggested that it’s “definitely not going to be everyone’s favorite version” of the character.
Apart from Magneto being super powerful in the film, with newfound powers, the movie will deal with the idea of the end of the world. Bryan Singer has managed to hold on to his cast from “First Class” and with a few additions, this movie looks like a blockbuster already.
“X-Men: Apocalypse,” starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Sophie Tuner from “Game of Thrones,” will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
