Bryan Singer Talks 'X-men: Apocalypse' Promises Best Vision Of Classic X-Men Yet!!

By Matt O'Bryant 

What's up guys and gals, 

Director Bryan Singer recently took some time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions about X-Men Apocalypse on Yahoo!  Singer had this to say.

Check his statements out below:

"We'll see "images and treatments of X-Men powers you’ve never seen before and some action and some pretty epic scope and some pretty major stakes, like global stakes.”

Also at the Fox panel during SDCC this past weekend Singer talked about Oscar Isaac's portrayal of the villain Apocalypse, a character which Singer seems particularly taken with:

Apocalypse is a pretty cool character, X-Men is always centered around the fight between mutants and humans. This one is a bit different, it deals with the concept of ancient mutantism, gods, and men. It deals with issues that are global. Apocalypse makes no distinction between humans and mutants, only between the weak and the strong. He as a character is what is so ultimately compelling.

In X-MEN: APOCALYPSE we will be seeing much younger versions of some classic X-Men characters like Jean Gray, Scott Summers, and Ororo Munroe who will all be dealing with the struggles of being young teenagers and having these insane mutant abilities.  Bryan Singer also talked about dealing with these younger versions of the characters.

These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3, they are at times in their lives when they are probably at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to be able to go back and take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and how they began.

According to Bryan Singer, it's possible we may finally see something approaching those classic costumes from the comics and television series in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE:

The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that. In ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I produced and wrote the story for, we hark back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comic, which were all the same, they were uniforms, they eventually evolved into colors. I will say that in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ there is a chance - without giving anything away - that you may get closer to seeing what I think you are interested in seeing. I know its something that I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.

X-Men: Apocalypse  hits theaters on May 27th, 2016
