Things are really kicking into high gear when it comes to next summer’s franchise blockbuster X-Men: Apocalypse. Hot on the heels of today’s official reveal of Kodi Smit-McPhee as the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler comes, courtesy of Empire, a look at some of the concept art being used for the Bryan Singer film, which spans all the way from ancient Egypt to the film’s “present day” in 1983. Check out two scans in the gallery viewer below courtesy of SuperHeroHype Forums contributor “GuestStar2004.”
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult will lead the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, which will also see the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Lucas Till as Havok and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner Jean Grey, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Olivia Munn as Psylocke. Oscar Isaac is also starring as the film’s title antagonist with Simon Kinberg scripting from a treatment by Mike Dougherty, Dan Harris and Kinberg.
Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, the Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
