Director Bryan Singer is never one to shy away from using social media, posting numerous photos from the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse ever since shooting began earlier this summer. Earlier this week, the director shared a photo of Storm (Alexandra Shipp) watching over Cairo, through the magic of visual effects and a process known as SimulCam. Today Bryan Singer has posted yet another photo, which unfortunately doesn't feature any cast members, but does tease some epic destruction and a massive X. Could Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) be responsible for all of this chaos? Or did Magneto create that massive iron X logo?
X-Men: Apocalypse follows Xavier (James McAvoy) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), who discover Apocalypse's plans for world destruction and put together a team of young mutants such as Jubilee (Lana Condor), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) to fight the ancient bad guy. The villainous title character (Oscar Isaac) goes on a mission to assemble his Four Horsemen. Storm is one of these Horsemen, who Apocalypse finds in her hometown of Cairo. She soon joins his side, along with Ben Hardy's Archangel, Olivia Munn's Psylocke and Michael Fassbender's Magneto, who has been living a secluded life in Poland for the past 10 years following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert) also return to reprise their roles in this superhero adventure. It has been rumored that Hugh Jackman may pop up as Wolverine, after the actor's cryptic conversation with Bryan Singer at Comic-Con last month. The actor has appeared in every X-Men movie to date, so it's certainly possible that he could have a brief appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, but we'll have to wait and see.
We have seen previous photos from the set that feature plenty of destruction, but it still isn't known what actually happens during these scenes. The superhero adventure is set for release on May 27, 2016, but it isn't known when production will wrap, or when we may get the first look at the trailer. The project has previously been compared to a disaster movie, and judging by this photo and others, it seems clear that comparison is valid.
Bryan Singer is directing from a script by Simon Kinberg. The director also recently confirmed that 20th Century Fox is planning a crossover movie between the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises, but this has yet to be confirmed. If Fantastic Four proves to be a big hit at the box office this weekend, we may be hearing more about this crossover in the near future. While we wait for more details on this highly-anticipated superhero movie, check out the latest photo from the X-Men: Apocalypse set in Montreal.
