It is intended to be the sequel to 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past and the ninth installment in the X-Men film series.

In X-Men: Apocalypse, ancient mutant Apocalypse awakens and plans to take over the world.

The film was announced by Singer in December 2013 with Kinberg, Dougherty, and Harris attached to develop the story. Casting began in October 2014 while principal photography commenced in April 2015 in Montreal, Canada, and ended in August of the same year. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016, in North America in 3D and 2D, and in IMAX 3D in select international markets.[3]

Premise

Since ancient times, the first and most powerful mutant, En Sabah Nur, also known as "Apocalypse" has been worshipped as a god. But when Apocalypse awakens from a hibernation of thousands of years, he is disgusted to find out what the world has come to and decides to change it. He recruits four followers, Ororo Munroe ("Famine"), Warren Worthington III ("Death"), Elizabeth Braddock ("Pestilence") and Erik Lehnsherr ("War"), to help him with this task of destroying humanity and building a better world, led by him, from the ruins. Now, Raven and Charles Xavier lead a team of young X-Men to face Apocalypse and defeat him.

The world's first and most powerful mutant, born in ancient times with a variety of superhuman abilities, who further augmented himself after merging with Celestial technology.

I'm trying to … Yeah. It's like an adoptive child or any kind of child who has a strange father trying to … He knows who he is now so he is trying to find him. He's been searching for him. It's been 10 years and he hasn't found him and then something happens."[12]

Production

Development

In December 2013, Bryan Singer announced X-Men: Apocalypse on the social networking service Twitter for a May 27, 2016 release.[54] In the same month, Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty were revealed by Singer to be attached to work on the story of the film.[55] According to Singer, the film will focus on the origin of the mutants and will feature the younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm.[56][57] Singer also said that he was considering Gambit and a younger version of Nightcrawler to appear.[58] According to Kinberg, it will take place in 1983 and will complete a trilogy that began with 2011's X-Men: First Class.[59][60] In September 2014, 20th Century Fox officially announced that Singer would direct the film.[61] Singer has called this film "kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters" and the "true birth of the X-Men".[62]

Writing

"It will address historical mutant-cy, meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that's always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers."

—Bryan Singer on what will be seen in X-Men: Apocalypse.[56]

Singer said that Apocalypse is the main focus of the film. Kinberg said that the younger versions of Scott Summers, Storm and Jean Grey appearing in the film are "as much a part of the film as the main cast". He described Summers as "not yet the squeaky-clean leader", Storm as a "troubled character who is going down the wrong path in life", and Grey as "complex, interesting and not fully mature."[63] Kinberg also said that the film delivers on the dramatic story and emotion of the last two films and that it acts like the culmination of the main characters portrayed by Lawrence, McAvoy, Fassbender and Hoult.[64]

Casting

In October 2014, casting for X-Men: Apocalypse began.[65] In November, Singer confirmed that Oscar Isaac would portray Apocalypse.[13] In January 2015, Singer announced that Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan will portray young Storm, Jean, and Cyclops.[17] The same month, Kinberg confirmed that Rose Byrne would reprise her role as Moira MacTaggert in the film.[16] In February, Kodi Smit-McPhee was cast as Nightcrawler and Ben Hardy was cast in an unspecified role.[33][66] In March, Singer announced that Lana Condor was cast as Hisako Ichiki.[43] In April, Singer confirmed that Hardy will portray Angel, Olivia Munn will portray Psylocke, and Lucas Till will return as Havok.[24][29][39] In May, Singer announced that the mutant Caliban will appear in the film.[67][68] In July, Hoult revealed on Conan that Josh Helman will return as William Stryker.[69] In April 2016, Hugh Jackman confirmed that he would make a cameo appearance as Wolverine.[70]

Filming

A mansion surrounded by trees and hedges.
The Englefield House, Berkshire, England served as the X-Mansion.

Principal photography commenced on April 27, 2015 in Montreal, Canada.[71] In late August, the first-unit production for the film wrapped,[72] with second-unit production wrapping on September 4, 2015.[citation needed] Additional filming took place in January 2016.[73]

Marketing

In July 2015, Singer, Lee, Hugh Jackman and cast-members McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence, Isaac, Hoult, Munn, Peters, Smit-McPhee, Turner, Sheridan, Shipp, Condor, Till and Hardy gave a presentation at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con International together with the release of the film's first teaser poster featuring En Sabah Nur and a wreckage of the X-Mansion.[74] Footage from the film was screened.[75]

In October 2015, Mars Chocolate partnered with 20th Century Fox for the marketing of the film using the M&M chocolates in their promotional materials. The deal will include retail displays and special packaging markings, TV and cinema commercials, and social media posts featuring the M&M's characters mixed with elements of the X-Men. The first image of M&M candies wearing Storm and Magneto costume was released on the same day of the announcement.[76]

In December 2015, Kia Motors collaborated with 20th Century Fox to create a custom Kia Sportage to promote the film. Designed after Mystique, the car will be revealed at the 2016 Australian Open. It will be Kia's second "X-Car" project after the Kia Sorento customized for the home media release of Days of Future Past and the 2015 Australian Open.[77][78][79][80] On January 4, 2016, Kia Motors released the first promo video of the car, featuring Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal.[81]

In April, 2016, Coldwell Banker partnered with 20th Century Fox to list the X-Mansion for $75 million.[82] The fictional listing included a video tour of the mansion and stories of the home from the perspective of characters such as Charles Xavier and Scott Summers. The fake property was listed by agent Kala V. Rhomedren, an anagram for Raven Darkholme.[83][84]

Release

X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 18, 2016 in the United Kingdom,[85] and May 27 in North America in both 3D and 2D formats,[54] and in IMAX 3D in select international markets, using the DMR process.[3]

Future

In May 2016, Kinberg has confirmed to Coming Soon that the next X-Men film will be set in the 90's.[86]
