After all the off-set controversy surrounding the X-Men helmer, Bryan Singer is officially returning to direct X-Men: Apocalypse, the follow up to Days of the Future. There were allegations made against the director, which caused much speculation about his future involvement with the franchise, but Deadline confirms a deal is closed and Singer is onboard. Simon Kinberg is returning to write the film (story by Singer, Kinberg, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris).
Deadline also provided details about the plot:
“Apocalypse takes place a decade after Days of Future Past and is a seamless next step in the story. The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles (James McAvoy), Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet – an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history.”
