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.

Lol they didn't include 'Age of' in the title... Seriously though, Singer is always looking for attention - he can't let WB or Marvel have a week to themselves.

This is pretty exciting though... Fox has officially surpassed DC and caught up with Marvel:

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Fantastic Four

X-Force

The Wolverine 2

X-Men: Apocalypse

What about a wolverine 3 movie?????

While I've liked most of the comic based movies of the past decade, I hope it doesn't come to a new one every month.

i think you mean yearly.. every month is impossible dude

This supposed to be about Apocalypse from what I have heard. Pretty dope.

Edited by Night Thrasher

It might be based on something lesser known like The Twelve storyline which seems a little easier to do a movie around than AoA

Edited by TazzMission

i wonder since it is speculated that ff and xmen will cross over will we ever see the real galactus and not that god awful cloud garbage? and would he be a cg charachter or would he be an actor in costume?

Yup! Right now Fox is tied with Marvel Studios as my favorite superhero company with Sony and WB far behind. I really cannot wait to see the above films. I'm excited for all of them! I really want them all to be great.

Posted by NorrinBoltagonPrime21

I am, intrigued by this.

Posted by MrMazz

@colmillo_senpai: that's the worst comparison I think I've ever seen. Singer isn't Scorsese but he has a technical profencicy that Bowel utterly lacks.

That could be interesting but eh Age of Apockalypse functions better because of the long wide spread format and not a singular threw line. Then again maybe it could be good, I've been wanting them to do it for a while.

*screams violently* THIS IS FANTASTIC.

Posted by samyroc

People already hating because they speculate it's going to be Wolverine 7, just shut up and enjoy the fact we're getting another X-Men movie and it's probably going to be FREAKING AWESOME.

NOW CHANT WITH ME, VINERS!

What to say else beside yes.

And beside, when anybody think about the x-men they probably thinks to wolverine too.

Posted by youngman_logan96

hahaha more wolverine yah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by youngman_logan96

@tyrus: well wolverine 3 is almost in works,yah the wolverine sequel i.e

That moment when Fox has more movies than DC... LOL.

I'm so X-tremely X-cited

Posted by bloggerboy

Haha, DC gets stomped again. Marvel will get Thanos and Apocalypse out before WB can even muster the courage to have someone write the name Darkseid as spoken dialogue in a script draft.

that may be true but think of what might happen if dofp dosent do well at the box office. fox stated its there second one billion dollar film they invested in with avatar being the first. to me the trailer looked amazing but in the end its really going to come down to box office draw because in order to break even i believe they have to make a billion ( not great with math but still). also even though it still looks questionable i think batman/superman is probably the most anticipated movie coming even if it is in 2015 it very well could suck but i think itll bank 2 billion i really do.

Another Wolverine movie

That's the day after my birthday. That brightened my day.

Honwst title:

Tall Pretty Boy Wolverine part 7- The Age where Apocalypse gets beaten by Wolverine.

lol

Edited by DefNote

Hope Apoc gets somewhat of a intro in Days. Glad this franchise is not going over to disney/marvel so they can kiddie it up and ruin the villains.

Posted by HAWK2916

On the one hand Im glad for another Xmen movie. On the other, thinking about the clusterf*ck that the Phoenix was and the fact that it's still Fox....ughhhh.

Either way color me cautiously optimistic

Edited by RustyRoy

Bring back Cyclops and make him an important character.

Posted by never_again

It will be interesting to see who the X-men are at the end of Days of Future Past (old cast or First class cast), I think that will really affect the story they can tell.

Can anyone remember the X-men Evolution Apocalypse storyline in the final season? that was pretty cool in an otherwise mediocre series, I feel something like that could work in live action.

Posted by Tyrus

Lol at how they didn't call it X-Men: 'Age of' Apocalypse...

Posted by Tyrus

Seriously though after Avengers Age of Ultron was announced, all these new movies have 'age/rise of' and the name of the villain in the titles...

Posted by Herokiller12344

Great, just as soon as I stop caring about Apoc.

I've got a feeling they'll depower Apocalypse alot so that he'll want wolverines healing factor or some garbage like that .

What would really make my day would be them rebooting the X-Men altogether. It is one of Marvel's best properties, and one of the best team books ever, it deserves better, especially than just being a glorified Wolverine vehicle.

@dernman said:

I wonder if they are Days of the Future past is going to soft reboot the franchise. I would love to see Cyclops back and actually be important in the movies.

Same here.

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

Hmmm I'm sensing a theme. Sad to say but probably true.

Posted by RogueShadow

Cool.

Posted by Crimsonlord53

Meh.

If you have to change the main character of the source material to sell tickets I have little reason to have high hopes for the next movie.

Edited by dshipp17

I'm really looking forward to this film, but such a long way off. Well, to the creative team, please study X-Men the animated series from the 90s, when making a film about Apocalypse. The episodes to consider: Come the Apocalypse, Obsession, his cameo in Sanctuary, Part 2, Beyond Good and Evil, and The Fifth Horseman. If the creative team remembers such source material, as the 90s animated series, and they make Apocalypse awesome, this should be a great movie. Please, don't fowl him up with the mess created in the comic books and prior X-Men movies; getting source material from anything other than the 90s X-Men tv show would turn a great movie into a mediocre to poor film.

yea like milking a charachter is brand new............... the irony of this statement is laughable since the people who complain about there being to much batman will still go see the 2015 movie of superman with him in it. if i had a dollar for everytime someone said movie ruined or i aint seeing it id be a billionare

WHOO! So cool.

JUST PRAYING AND HOPING FOR AN AWESOME CYCLOPS AND A STORY ABOUT THE X-MEN NOT wolverine (rolls eyes)

Edited by Timotheus316

Hey, remember when comics were $1.50? Whoops, sorry! Wrong thread.

Edited by clayscarface

The timing of this is awesome, giving even more hype to the franchise so that people will want to see DoFP to make sure they know what's going on. Plus, with another solo Wolverine movie, I'm hoping this will have plenty of ensemble support. I just really don't want an AoA movie. I hated those stories, but I love Apocalypse and all that comes with him, so I'm just super excited to see where this all goes.

Posted by TerryBogard2014

jeez everyone is blowing their load this month.all thats missing is MS confirming Ant man casting.

Edited by TazzMission

stephen lang for cable god damnit!

Posted by dreamfall31

@tazzmission: He's got the look, but I will never see him as any other character but the bad guy from Avatar. That and I'm sure they'll want to cast someone younger and closer to A-list.

Edited by Captain13

@dreamfall31: Agreed. By the time X-Force rolls around, that guy will be too old for a property they will want for at least 8 years. They're probably going to cast someone in their 30s and dye his hair white.

Really hoping the X-Force 5 are Cable, Deadpool, Psylocke, Bishop, and Juggernaut. It's supposed to take place after X-Men: Apocalypse, so hopefully some time travel is involved.

Edited by HAWK2916

Please not Fantomex.

as far Lang... I dont want the same mistakes that were made with Magneto. I originally thought Bruce Willis if you want older but still action-based but now im not sure maybe the Monroe guy from Revolution on Fox?

Badass AoA Cyclops and Magneto destroying Apoc in half = insta win for me.
