While X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t come out for two more weeks, talk of the next X-Men film has already begun. Director Bryan Singer confirmed that if another movie was made, it would be in the 90’s. He went on about why this was:
“That was something Simon [Kinberg] and I discussed a long time ago, all the way back to when I first pitched the studio on First Class — that they do each movie in 10-year increments,” Singer tells Fandango. “It’s a nice way for the audience to kind of keep track of the timeline, and it’s fun to play in these different eras. So that’s a good starting point.”
Furthermore, he explained what he felt would be a good sequel to Apocalypse, one that would also be true to the X-Men mythology, going into space:
“Also I imagine – and this is the first time I’ve actually answered the question this way – but another thing that’s been introduced in the comics is a big alien, interstellar tenant within the X-Men universe that hasn’t been explored,” Singer continued. “And to me, that might be kind of fun because I’m a huge Star Wars and Star Trek fan, and exploring the X-Men universe and being able to utilize that would be exciting, visually.“
X-Men: Apocalypse arrives May 27th.
