Apocalypse – The Next “X-Men” Villain?

While cast member announcements are announced every other day, and the Sentinels are likely to make an appearance, the actual villain in the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” has remained something of a mystery.

Now, speaking with Bleeding Cool, filmmaker Bryan Singer was asked if the villain Apocalypse would make an appearance. He responded:

“I can’t tell you… “

Asked if realising the character of Apocalypse would require performance capture, a reportedly nervous Singer said:

“This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together… “

In the comics Apocalypse is said to be the first mutant in history, born five millennia ago in Jordan, and shows up throughout several periods in history. Could this be the character Peter Dinklage is portraying?
