With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theater in May, director Bryan Singer is already looking into the future. He dropped some important clues as to who we might see in the next installment X-Men: Apocalypse, which will immediately follow this summer's mutant adventure.
In a recent interview with Mexican site Cine Premiere, the director revealed that there is a possibility we will see a young Gambit and Nightcrawler in the film. Here's what he had to say:
"I'm considering Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse. I was going to have Nightcrawler [in X-Men: Days of Future Past] and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were forcing too many mutants into the story."
We previously saw Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Nightcrawler in X2: X-Men United. The project will focus on the origin of the mutants and will be more of a sequel to X-Men: First Class that is set in the 1980s. We may see younger versions of mutants who appeared in the first 3 installments, such as Cyclopes and Jean Gray. Who do you want to see in X-Men: Apocalypse?
