New BTS Shots & Concept Art For X-MEN: APOCALYPSE And A Rumour

The X-Men: Apocalypse concept art below courtesy of Empire is very interesting indeed, and that Blackbird looks like perhaps the best version of the iconic jet to date. We can also see that Charles Xavier is back in his wheelchair, but still has hair. Is he ever going bald?! There's also a glimpse of ancient Egypt, with confirmation from Bryan Singer that the movie will partially take place in those times. 





There's been a lot of grumbling about the sheer amount of mutants that X-Men: Apocalypse appears to be cramming in, but fear not, because regardless of how many cameos the movie ends up featuring, the three who matter will be taking on well-deserved leading roles. "They’re as much a part 
of the movie as our main cast," writer and producer Simon Kinberg says of Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, and Alexandra Shipp. "Scott is not yet the squeaky-clean leader. Storm is 
a troubled character who is going down the wrong path in life. And Jean is complex, interesting and not fully mature. It’s fun to see someone struggling with their powers when you know one day they’ll become the most powerful person in the world." Director Bryan Singer meanwhile promises an X-Men movie very different to what's come before, and that's mostly down to the addition of Oscar Isaac's Apocalypse. "It’s a big monster of a movie. The stakes are so high and global and the villain 
is so mythic. It’s definitely an X-Men movie, but it really feels different."

Filming for X-Men: Apocalypse has commenced this week and we now have our first looks at Tye Sheridan as Cyclops/Scott Summers, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Lana Condor as Jubilee/Jubilation Lee and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner on the set.

They're shooting a scene in a mall, set in 1983. It may be a scene involving other mutants recruiting Jubilee as the animated series and the comics used the location for that. If it is anything like the animated series we can expect Jubilee to be under threat and the other coming to her rescue.

Sheridan can be seen sporting new Cyclops visors. Nightcrawler is wearing a red leather jacket like the one Michael Jackson wore in the Thriller music video. Sophie Turner's hair has been dyed (or it's a wig) bright-red.

Here is some other BTS shots revealing our first unofficial look at Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers/ Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Lana Condor as Jubilation Lee/ Jubilee, as well as another look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in very 1980's clothing!









RUMOUR TERRITORY:


After what will be 16 years and 9 films, it appears Bryan Singer's X-Men Universe may be coming to an end in 2017. Umberto Gonzalez is reporting that Singer's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE & James Manglod's WOLVERINE 3 may serve to cap-off the current series of films, as speculated when Hugh Jackman confirmed that the currently untitled Wolverine solo film would be his last outing as the character, and with the film rumored to adapt Mark Millar's OLD MAN LOGAN story-arc.


X-Men: Apocalypse, directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), will hit theaters on May 27, 2016 and stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Ben Hardy (Angel), Olivia Munn(Psylocke), Lucas Till(Havok) and Lana Condor (Jubillee).
