Looks like X-Men: Apocalypse is back on track and Fox has Bryan Singer at the helms. The movie is a go with him directing it, but he does have a lot to make up for with that lawsuit that he had against him.
Singer was accused of sexually assaulting and raping Michael F. Egan III back in the late 1990s. Egan was an extra in Singer movie, and Egan told the media that he and other boys were preyed on by Singer during shooting of the film. The acquisition was dropped recently with a $100,000 pay to Egan, but Singer did not appear at the tour for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Yet, with Singer able to direct X-Men: Apocalypse (set in the 1980s) then he has big shoes to fill. He must feel that to help ease the public’s mind of this debacle he has to bring his A game to this new X-Men film than any film before. That will be a tall order after creating all X-Men films except for X-Men: The Last Stand or both Wolverine films for they are the longest running hero film series to date.
X-Men: Apocalypse will have James McAvoy as the intelligent Professor Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as the cunning Mystique, and Michael Fassbender as powerful Magneto plus other favorites and younger versions of characters from the X-Men trilogy. Maybe a young Storm, Cyclops, or Jean Grey will appear in the upcoming movie being recruited by Xavier?
Apocalypse will be the main focus of the movie, but as of now there is no word of what he will be doing to, you probably guessed it, rule the world. No matter what happens let’s hope Singer brings justice to Apocalypse and that May 27th, 2016 goes down as a glorious day in nerd history.
