So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States, with Bryan Singer directing a cast that includes X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) along with newcomers Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler, Ben Hardy (EastEnders) as Angel, Olivia Munn (Magic Mike) as Psylocke and newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee.

  • Nico

    You made an article on a picture of a chair, how PATHETIC!

    • RandomGuy

      it got you to read it. I’d say mission accomplished.

  • NatSolo

    a fucking chair?? seriously? go fuck yourself, brian.

  • Batchat

    if he’s small enough to fit in that tiny chair I’m not impressed

    • Bringo

      Yeah, but the other chair is for his penis, so don’t you worry.

      • Batchat

        I’m afraid that the things you and I hope to see in this movie are VERY different :/

        • Bringo

          I’m afraid you’ve failed in your attempt to embarrass me or invoke shame in any way. Clearly by your response you can’t say the same. At any rate, please, enjoy your shitty, homoerotic, pederast directed movie. lol.

          • Batchat

            Homoerotic? like I said our expectations couldn’t be further apart

          • Bringo

            No, no, you’ve got it all wrong I’m not expecting anything from this pile of crap movie (a technical umbrella term applied to nearly all comic-book movies.) I’m just trolling you, but you’re too dense to see this what with Cyclops’s blue Lycra sheathed bulge dancing in your head at your every waking moment! XD

            Shame on you, Batchat.

            Shame on you.

          • Batchat

            yea nice save (eye roll)

  • megaflyx

    Is that Clint Eastwood’s chair?

  • A

    Holy shit Apocalypse is going to be it!!! That’s the extent to this article about xmen: apocalypse … Idiot

    • HolyFranchiseBatman!

      So, pretty much to the extent that it’s fully about X-Men: Apocalypse? I’m not sure what your point is. But seeing as you signed off your comment “idiot”, maybe I shouldn’t really expect you to make any sense.

      • Spiderclaw

        What i think he meant was that we all knew Apocalypse was going to be in the movie. the title says it all. So the chair with his name on it is NOT a reveal.

        • HolyFranchiseBatman!

          Yeah, it’s a tease of the reveal, which is why the title is Bryan Singer teases Apocalypse reveal, rather than Bryan Singer reveals Apocalypse. So the chair IS a tease of a reveal… like the title says.

  • Racial_Dolezal

    If articles like these are all it takes to be labeled a journalist, I might as well start a site of my own and fill it with click-bait.

    • HolyFranchiseBatman!

      It would also help if you knew what click bait was.

    • HolyFranchiseBatman!

      Do it, then I can come on your site and be a prick in the comments. Role reversal.

  • Zach Cage

    WTF? So sick of Singer. ….OVER. RATED….and obviously a joke.

  • a tease for a tease..? can’t wait to see him though

  • Chewie Armstrong

    Where’s the tease? I see nothing

  • travis

    Apocalypse is a crappy Rip Off of DarkSeid

  • Charlie Deen

    According to his Instagram account, this is what Singer had to say regarding people’s questions about Apocalypse movie:

    -“you will definitely see characters unleash their powers much stronger
    and bigger than ever before in this movie, thats a promise”

    -“i think apocalypse will emulate the character in the comic book, i’m very excited about the look”

    -“I must say the film is going really really well! Yesterday was a pretty epic shoot and this morning I begin shooting the awakening of Apocalypse.”

    -“you will see nightcrawler,havok and quicksilver i promise that”

    -“i hear your phoenix question but i don’t want to answer it”

    -“I guess there will be an after credits scene, but I haven’t figured out what it is yet.”

    -“You might see a few things at, Con if I can make it there to Hall H, regarding storm that is and other things.”

    -“There are a couple of surprises”

    -“i’m playing them as simply parents (Cyclops and Havoks parents) but they could be foster parents”

    -“its actually going amazing on the set, the cast get along
    fantastically! that’s not always the case. but for some reason everybody
    just gets along so well and is so much fun. however when the cameras
    start rolling they go full professional”

    -“there will be lots to settle things in X-Men Apocalypse. it is truly a
    climax to not only the last two films but i really believe the previous
    Five”

    – Kinberg: “From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply. The kind of scope and scale we’re talking about is like disaster movie, extinction level event. Sort of Roland Emmerich-style moviemaking, which you’ve never seen in an X-Men movie, or any superhero movie, which I think is exciting.”
