Bryan Singer Offers X-Men: Apocalypse Tease as Location Scouting Begins

Production on the highly-anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to begin in the coming months, and director Bryan Singer has offered a tease on his Instagram account of that start of location scouting. In addition, he posted an image of one of the large metal X doors from films past, teasing “Old door. But there’ll be something new behind it.” Check out the images and speculate on Singer’s tease below!

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 and newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan as young versions of Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops. The film is being written by Simon Kinberg 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, cameras will start rolling on the next adventure in Montreal beginning in April. X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
