New X-Men Movie Announced

X-Men director Bryan Singer just made a huge announcement on Twitter. What are you waiting for? Come see what it is.

Fox clearly has big plans for the massive roster of X-Men. Not only are they diving into Days of Future past next year, but we also know they're working on an X-Force movie, too. Even though they're still building the hype for X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer took to twitter and said something that makes the future very exciting. Apparently Iceman actor Shawn Ashmore heard the news like the rest of us, too.

According to Collider, the movie is scheduled to open May 27, 2016. Could it be inspired by Age of Apocalypse or will it have stronger connections to another story revolving around the first mutant? Have some fun speculating below, Viners!

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.

I already know that this movie will not be very good.

Awesome new movie announced! Better start hating it before it comes out!

If DoFP is good, I'll be excited, if it's mediocre like all the other X-Men films though, then I'm done with the franchise.

Why are pepole acting like none of the X-Men films have been good? The last 2 (The Wolverine and First Class) have been great

Posted by Jbreen

This is great news.

Maybe this is an indication in the faith the studio and everyone has in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It would be great if DOFP acts as a soft reboot so we could bring back characters like Cyclops and have them portrayed properly going forward.

@arturocalakayvee: There's no reason to think it's a "X-Men" movie and that's why I dont care. All evidence points to it being a Wolverine film.

Days of Future Past is Kitty Pride story, but a Wolverine movie.

X-Men 1 was all about Wolverine joining the X-Men and mentoring Rogue.

X-Men 2 was really about him being the leader (as opposed to, you know, Cyclops or Storm). And confronting the military guy from his past, responsible for his Adamantium.

X-Men 3 was an abomination, was totally about Wolverine and his romance with Jean. And him single handedly defeating the Phoenix.

Wolverine Origins and The Wolverine are self-explanatory, I think.

First Class was the only actual X-Men movie, and Wolvie wasnt even in it.

agreed. only beef i had with wolverine though was the whole arrow scene when running to save that chick in the end. that just looked so badly done but other than that yea wolverine was a redemption from orgins

Cool.

Same here.

My prediction though? An "X-Men" Apocalypse movie all about Wolverine.

FINALLY some screen time for this forgotten character..... :P

When will Colossus trample Kitty in this film?

Posted by jkma68

I hope it's AoA! I have always that the Age of Apocalypse would make the best X-Men movie! I'm holding judgement until I see DOFP, but my inner X-nerd is very excited!

Edited by fables87

Already excited for this! And a side note I want to see Storm rocking a Mohawk if she's in this one too.

Now this is the correct way to milk their franchises... I'm sure we won't get what the comics bring but at least it's not another origin movie.

Finally!!! Was wondering when they were gonna bring him out into the cinematic universe. It'll prolly have a title like "X-Men: Rise of Apocalypse" or just "X-Men: Apocalypse" though instead of "Age of..." it just seems a little better to introduce him better that way rather than have him already the guy that runs the world at the beginning of a movie as many people who don't even read the comics won't know who he really is or what his background/origin is.

Posted by Smurfboy

Very interesting! I do actually hope they will focus on a team, not just Wolverine only (No offended, Logan. We love you but I think we want to see more actions from other team!).

Posted by TazzMission

i have to say i was thinking of how this guy can work and i just found it strange this was just announced. this would be the perfect movie to introduce cable and have that tie into xforce

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Awesome, it will be very interesting to see how this develops

Edited by Mxyzptlk_CV

Apocalypse!!! yaaaaay!!!

Posted by dbatdog

i'm more excited for the two Rurouni Kenshin sequels than this. at the end of the movie, wolverine will save the day, so wha't new? : /

and i'm not currently loving what Singer has done with some of the x-men characters - i.e. Psylock, Havok, Bishop (? really?)

Posted by Perfect 10

want to be excited for this i really do but lets be real, we all know how the movie is going to end: everyone but wolverine will get their butts kicked and wolverine will kill apocalypse by himself cause yeah, that's realistic like when he killed phoenix in X3, cause somehow he is the ONLY ONE that she couldnt vaporize with a thought. until i hear full details (mostly who will be in it and i so want to see Magik one day) im like "eh"

and that's why i can no longer get excited when i hear about an upcoming x-men movie. days of future past killed that buzz with all the wolverine focus that they wont stop doing. its so hard to be an x-man fan when the movies really are "WOLVERINE and yeah those other people" sigh. thank the GODS for comics

Posted by MasterBelmont

Won't be seeing this. I will never see another "X-Men" (air quotes for a reason) movie until either the rights go back to Marvel or the franchise gets rebooted. Also, this article's title is wrong. It should say "New Wolverine movie announced".

is this a comic forum or a women cry fest? i swear i i shouldve brought tampons for you people since you complaine way to much

@vaizd said:

YES.

Why are you saying YES?Have the previous X-men movies been that great?

In my eyes this just prolonges the day Marvel ever gets the rights back.I am disappointed.Its Fox its probably gonna end up Wolverine vs Apocalypse or some crap.

urghh

Edited by JamDamage

If the X-Force movie comes out first, then it'll be connect with this I would think. Taking a page from Marvel Studios and connecting films. Could work well if done right. Stryfe involved. Lets hope they don't screw this up.

i believe this is before xforce. im not 100% sure though and if it is that would be a nice way to weave into the fox xmen universe.

Please bring it and please do it right!

Have you ever used the internet, all people do is complain apparently.

People bitched that the Days of Future Past trailer didn;t have enough action and are now bitching the new Spider-Man trailer has "too much" in it. People don't know what they want, and aren't happy unless they are bitching, lol.

Posted by GodDamnIronMan

what a week, WHAT A WEEK...

first DC's Wonder Woman casting announced, then Barry Allen on Arrow

Marvel's X-force update, ASM trailer came out and then this...

I am thinking all movie studios are planned to do all of it in this week...more to come maybe? who know.

agreed. it must suck to always be that miserable about a movie of all things. like wolverine as a example. for years people rode him like hes this amazing charachter and now with going on 7 films people complain oh to much wolverine : smh: i admit i use to be one of those types of people but i just learned just see it for what it is. if its great its great if it sucks it sucks.. i wont know till i see it and its 2 years away

Posted by RigorMortis

I have been waiting so long for this. Apocalypse is my favorite X-Men villain. Please let Bryan Singer be directing.

These people that complain about "too much Wolverine" must have apparently never really read the comics, throughout X-Men history there has been times when characters like Cyclops and Storm have quit or didn't appear in the X-Men for long periods of time. But you know has pretty much always been there and has never left for that long?? Some guy named Wolverine...and for that reason they have him as a centric character in the films??? No way.

Yeah, so he's bankable. Put him in every comic, in every movie, center stage. Screw the rest of the cast, they're just background material anyway. Rah, rah, rah, Wolverine.... ugh.

Screw the rest of the cast?? They made an X-Men film without him and he has a fair amount of screentime as everyone else in X2.

Posted by frozenedge

So Days of Future Past sets us up for Age of Apocalypse and possibly reboots the franchise bringing back certain characters and adding others into the roster and possibly changing where others are. Then X-Force comes afterwards to take down Apocalypse? Or Sinister or whoever they're going after

Posted by amaltheias

Whoa, they already have a date so far in advance. Fingers crossed for this movie!

Posted by Manute117

we are in a time where we cant keep up with the news of all these comic book movies, it awesome..

Posted by Tyrus

Haha, Fox are smartasses. They swoop in Apocalypse before Thanos becomes a main villain and Darkseid in the imaginary Justice League film.

Typical Singer and Millar.

I can't believe it took sixteen years from the first movie to get a movie with Apocalypse. Or that Rocket Raccoon will be on the big screen first.
