“X-Men” helmer Bryan Singer takes it to his Instagram for the latest tease for the latest installment of Fox’s “X-Men” franchise, “X-Men: Apocalypse.” Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor X, shares “X-Men” updates. Read on for further details.
“X-Men” helmer Bryan Singer shares a photo on his Instagram account of himself standing in front of a door reminiscent of the door to Cerebro in previous “X-Men” films.
Now it is not specified which room this door might lead into, but Singer did say “something new behind it.” What could it be? Well, it’s safe to bet that the door might lead into Cerebro, which was constantly featured on the “X-Men” films, with a new and improved look, perhaps even rechristening it to Cerebra, akin to its modern comics counterpart.Perhaps another possibility is an entirely new room, like say, the Danger Room? The X-Men’s famous training grounds which so far has only appeared on one “X-Men” film, “X-Men: The Last Stand.”
Moreover, another “X-Men: Apocalypse” update comes from one of “X-Men” pic alum Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor Xavier in the first three installments. Although Stewart won’t be returning in “Apocalypse,” it seems that his friend, Ian McKellen will make an appearance on it.
“Yes, I understand that it seems to be very unlikely that I will be in the next ‘X-Men’ movie, which is almost getting ready to start shooting in Montreal, but Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it,” Stewart shared on Oregon Live.
Michael Fassbender will still be playing Magneto in the pic, which is reported to be set in the ’80s, so it’s certainly interesting what role McKellen’s Magneto will play in the pic. Perhaps a flash forward scene or better yet a time travelling role. After all, most Apocalypse stories are known to have the time travelling element in it.
Moreover, Stewart confirms that his Xavier might appear as he is currently in talks to star in the third “Wolverine” pic, where he will be teaming up with Hugh Jackman’s character.
“Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of “X-Men” from the four movies that I’ve already done,” Stewart added.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
