While sitting for an interview with Empire, in between a busy schedule in Montreal, director Bryan Singer reveals that Apocalypse will be a big monster. This time round, the stakes are higher and the villain is a mythical one. The younger versions of the characters are not cameos. While talking about Jean Grey, Kinberg says that it is fun watching someone who is going to be the most powerful person in the world struggling with her powers.
Set to release in May, 2016, X-Men: Apocalypse could be the last film in the franchise. According to an inside information, Apocalypse and Wolverine will close the series. While Apocalypse becomes the last film in the X-Men franchise, Wolverine becomes the last of the characters spin-offs.
Fans were aware that this might happen soon enough since Hugh Jackman had said that he no longer wants to play the character of Wolverine after the next film based on the mutant. According to the comic version, Apocalypse sees the mutants facing a global threat and ends their story.
Yes, Fox will always have the power to restart the franchise outside of the gambit of Bryan Singer, but Kinberg said that with the Apocalypse bringing the X-Men universe to an end, it will be a little difficult for later films based on it to function without anything to fall back on.
