X-Men: Days of Future Past may not be in theaters for another couple of months, but that isn’t stopping director Bryan Singer from thinking about the next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse.In a recent interview with Cine Premiere magazine, Singer revealed there is a couple of mutants he’s thinking about bringing back, Gambit and Nightcrawler.
“I’m considering a Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse,” he said. “[I was] going to have Nightcrawler appear [in Days of Future Past] and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were forcing too many mutants known history.“
I have to admit I am kind of disappointed Nightcrawler isn’t in Days of Future Past, but I understand his reasoning for the cut. X-Men: Apocalypse is tentatively set for a 2016 release date. (Source: Cine PREMIERE, via CBM)
