Anticipation of “X-men” fans for the upcoming “X-men: Apocalypse” film has been built up nicely for the past few months because of director Bryan Singer.
Singer is known to be very active in social media and is fond of utilizing his Instagram account to tease the fans with tidbits, set photos and clues regarding the upcoming movie.
Now, Comic Book reports that the director has done it again.
This time, Singer shared a photo showing what appears to be a private screening of the first teaser for “X-Men: Apocalypse”.
The photo shows James McAvoy’s character as Charles Xavier/Professor X.
Cinema Blend seems to provide context into this observation. According to the website, the photo shared by Singer was the last shot of the “X-men: Apocalypse” footage shown in the San Diego Comic-Con last summer.
The website shares that when Charles Xavier was tracking Apocalypse with Cerebro, he was overwhelmed by the villain’s power. Cinema Blend says that this may explain his pained expression in the shot.
It has been reported last week that the first trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse” will debut before the premiere of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” on December 18. From this point to the trailer’s release date, Singer may share more details of what to expect.
“Xmen: Apocalypse” is said to take place 10 years after the events of “Xmen: Days of Future Past” transpired.
Collider breaks down that returning characters in “X-Men: Apocalypse” will include James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast. Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Lucas Till as Havok. Meanwhile, new faces joining the cast includes Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Oscar Isaac as the titular Apocalypse.
“X-men: Apocalypse” is scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
