Talk of a sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse has been rampant as of late. There have been rumors of titles, shooting dates, actors returning, and more. But one thing there hasn’t been is an answer to the question of who might write and direct the expected X-sequel. Now that name may finally be revealed.
In a new interview, Michael Fassbender spoke for us all. When asked if he’d be coming back to the X-Men franchise, he said, “I don’t know, to be honest. I haven’t made any sort of decision on it because I have no idea what’s happening next with the franchise, to be honest.” You said it, Magneto.
In movies, there’s usually a moment where everything clicks. Where the image, emotion, and sound meet in perfect harmony and no matter what happens before or after, you realize you are in love with this moment. The cinema of 2016 had plenty of these moments, and we picked our 16 favorites.
We don’t really get to see Scott Summers use his classic visor in Apocalypse—he gets it as part of his final, ‘90s-inspired costume near the end, but that’s pretty much all we see of it. As this deleted scene shows, he almost got it a bit earlier in the movie... although he wasn’t too keen on the appearance at first.
The mall montage from X-Men: Apocalypse was one of the most talked-about deleted scenes from the movie. Now, we’ve finally gotten a chance to see the full scene, and damn what a missed opportunity.
Summer of 2016 hasn’t been a great time for the blockbuster. If it wasn’t animated, most of the big-budget movies that studios usually rely on to make their fortunes for the year flopped. Here are some of the reasons why
You’ve probably seen escape rooms advertised on TV or around your city. They’re interactive experiences that force a group of people to work together, solve clues, and get out of a made up scenario. It’s something you’d expect to do on a Friday night, not on the floor of a convention.
Not content to wait idly by until Deadpool 2 starts shooting next year, the merc with a mouth infiltrated this Japanese trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. It was partly in preparation for the Japanese release of his own film (where it opened earlier this month; this is a few weeks old) but mainly to continue biting the…
Look, for this job I watch a lot of promotional videos. Trailers and TV spots and ads and featurettes—everything studios do in the neverending pole-dance that is trying to get people to see their movies. Sometimes, movies are paid a lot of money to let other companies sell shit using their characters and I have to…
Basically, imagine that Bryan Singer is Michael Corleone and the X-Men movies are the mob. Only he’s not upset so much as he is resigned and kind of happy about it.
The X-Men movies just can’t quit Wolverine, it seems. Hugh Jackman’s take on the world’s most beloved Canadian (okay, maybe next to Justin Trudeau?) has managed to show up in every main X-Men movie, whether in a starring role or as a cameo. But it turns out his savage appearance in Apocalypse could’ve been even bigger.
The latest X-Men movie is sadly a bit of a bummer, with grand scale but no soul. But what if Fox had included it in its plans to slap an R-rating on every superhero movie it had going in the wake of Deadpool’s smashing success? It probably wouldn’t be as goofy as this parody trailer presumes.
Everything that’s good, and bad, about X-Men: Apocalypse can be traced to it being part of the successful X-Men franchise. It’s not only the third film in the series (in the new movie continuity), but also the sixth (overall), and also the ninth (if you count solo movies) which creates certain…

Comics diehards have grumbled about this for a while, but they have a surprising little ally: Lawrence’s own…
