Bryan Singer Talks “Apocalypse” Design

The last of the young “X-Men” trilogy of films deals with Apocalypse, arguably the most famous evil mutant of the franchise outside of Magneto.

Getting the ancient being and his unique design right for the screen was one of the toughest challenges that filmmaker Bryan Singer faced when planning “X-Men: Apocalypse,” but speaking with Empire he says he stayed as true to the comic as he could: “He’ll be very similar to images in the comic. There’s obviously something very futuristic and yet ancient to the design of both his costume and his physicality.”

Actor Michael Fassbender also spoke with the outlet about his third time out as Magento and what happens with him this time: “Magneto is a guy that plays both side. It depends on the day of the week. When we first meet him here, he’s hung up his cape and he’s fallen in love and had a family. His motives are in some ways justifiable, it’s just his methods that are questionable.”

Some new photos are out as well, including a different color time and better look at the villain himself. “X-Men: Apocalypse” opens in cinemas on May 27th 2016.
