Who are these mysterious uniformed men and what role will they play in 20th Century Fox’s summer 2016 mutant ensemble, X-Men: Apocalypse? We’re not quite sure yet, but they’re the focus of the latest Instagram tease from director Bryan Singer, who accompanies the shot with the equally mysterious caption, “The past catches up.” Check out the full shot below!
Although it’s only speculation, it seems a distinct possibility that these men are hunting Michael Fassbender’s Magneto and have therefore made a point to arm themselves without using any metal objects.
James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult are also set to 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, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Lana Condor as Jubilee. 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.
