20th Century Fox still hasn’t released the special teaser for X-Men: Apocalypse that debuted at Comic-Con a couple of weeks ago, but director Bryan Singer is still keeping in touch with fans and revealing new videos and photos from the set on a regular basis. From behind-the-scenes glimpses at the film’s sets to gorgeous concept art, Singer has posted it all.
Singer shared a photo on his official Instagram account on July 22, showing him walking on a wrecked Cairo, Egypt’s capital.
There is plenty of information about the film we can draw from this.
And it has gotten fans of the franchise roaring with rumors with many speculating that the production is now shooting scenes for the X-Men character, Storm. We know from the first plot details that Apocalypse, the first mutant in history, awakens in his tomb and decides to destroy human civilization for the greater good. That may explain why the set is in ruins. It’s also the city that she returns to on more than one occasion while on hiatus from the team; in many ways, it’s her home away from home – somewhat unusually for a character born in the U.S.to American and Kenyan parents. The film looks like it will at least partially be an origin story for the longtime member of the X-Men. Along with him, “X-Men: Apocalypse” also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Alexandra Shipp, Ben Hardy, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Olivia Munn, Tye Sheridan, Lara Condor, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, and Josh Helman, among others. She will join Psylocke, Angel and Magento as Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen, destined to destroy the world.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
