While Comic-Con is just getting under way in San Diego, production on director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse is still going on in Montreal. Earlier today, the director revealed a brief video from the set, which teases some fiery destruction in front of a green screen, and a massive helicopter. Naturally, there isn't much we can gather from the scene he's shooting just from that brief video alone, but it does look like he's employing a rather large set for this X-Men: Apocalypse scene.
Even though production has been under way on X-Men Apocalypse for many months, there is still very little we know about the story thus far. The plot is set in the year 1983, and we know it will be the final installment of the trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Recent photos have teased that Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke) have started their portions of the productions, but story details are still very hard to come by. We do know of one character that won't be involved in the story, Channing Tatum's Gambit, after the actor confirmed during a Reddit AMA session that he is not in the movie.
X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Lana Condor, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee. This superhero sequel is set to hit theaters May 27, 2016, and director Bryan Singer teased that he wants to bring X-Men: Apocalypse to https://movieweb.com/comic-con for 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel on Saturday, July 11.
