X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Comic-Con Panel Reveals Altered Timeline with First Footage

     July 11, 2015


With interest in superhero movies at a fever pitch, one of the veterans of the genre, X-Men, is still going strong. The series was successfully “rebooted” with 2011’s X-Men: First Class, and director Bryan Singer made his triumphant return with last year’s follow-up X-Men: Days of Future Past. That film not only combined the original cast with the newcomers, but also ended with a new, alternate timeline for the franchise going forward.

So where does it go from there? Production is currently underway on X-Men: Apocalypse with Singer once again at the helm, and as the time period shifts to the 1980s, young versions of other iconic mutants like Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) are being introduced. The entire cast, plus Singer and writer/producer Simon Kinberg, took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con today to show off the first footage (featuring a look at Apocalypse in full costume) and tease where we find the characters after the dramatic events of Days of Future Past.
