Back in April, new concept art images debuted from X-Men: Apocalypse, which gave us a look at the new Cerebro, along with the Blackbird jet and the Egyptian tomb of the main villain, Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. Today, Entertainment Weekly gives us a better look at this artwork in their new Comic-Con edition, along with some new details from director Bryan Singer. As you know, X-Men: Apocalypse rounds out the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the director teases that this new movie will essentially conclude all six X-Men movies.
"This is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters. This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens."
It sounds like X-Men: Apocalypse could bring the franchise full-circle, potentially ending where the original 2000 superhero movie X-Men started. Then again, that may not be possible without the help of either some time travel elements, or perhaps a flash-forward sequence at the end, since X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the year 1983. The director has previously stated that both X-Men: Apocalypse and 2017's Wolverine 3 will mark the "end" of this storied franchise, but 20th Century Fox still has Deadpool and Gambit coming out next year, which are also a part of the X-Men Cinematic Universe.
Bryan Singer teased earlier this week that he hopes to bring some X-Men: Apocalypse footage to Comic-Con next week, during 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation on Saturday. Since production is still going on in Montreal, it isn't known what the filmmaker is planning to show, but the fans in San Diego will surely be in for a treat one week from tomorrow. Take a look at the concept art below, and let us know what you think.
