Even though we haven’t seen this summer’s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ yet, Bryan Singer took to Twitter today to tease that a new X-Men movie is on it’s way… in 2016!

And the proposed title of the film has us all stoked: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. That’s either a reference to one of the X-Men’s biggest villains (um, Apocalypse, duh) or just the fact that things are going to get straight up apocalyptic for Marvel’s band of merry mutants.
Fox confirmed that the movie will be released Memorial Day weekend on May 27, 2016 even though Disney’s ‘Alice in Wonderland 2’ will arrive that same day. Seeing as both of the previous movies in those franchises made big money, look for one of them to shift dates. Disney VS Fox… who’s going to flinch?
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, out this summer, features stars from his original X-Men films and Matthew Vaughn’s ‘X-Men: First Class’, ideally for fans in a move that will streamline the universe in order to move forward towards the previously announced ‘X-Factor’ and ‘Deadpool’ films (and let’s not count out a possible ‘Fantastic 4’ crossover… like that time in the comics where both teams went to Latveria and duked it out with Doom… remember that!?!).
‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is arriving May 23, 204.
