The 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director kills the rumor suggesting the titular mutant in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' is an extraterrestrial creature.
Bryan Singer responded to a speculation that Apocalypse in the 2016 "X-Men" movie is an extraterrestrial creature. "#Apocalypse is not an alien. :) #XMenApocalypse," he denied the rumor which arose after alleged most recent drafts of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" script hit the web teasing credit scene in the movie.
The scene at the end of the movie allegedly sees a young Erik Lehnsherr witnessing something fall from the night sky. He encounters a mysterious being at the crash site and the unknown form merges into his body. While the director dismissed the alien rumor, he didn't say anything about the description that swirled on the internet.
"Days of Future Past" is due in the U.S. on May 23, 2014. "X-Men: Apocalypse" will follow May 27, 2016. In the comics, Apocalypse is described as one of the earliest known mutant humans. As his physical body wore out, he survives by projecting his consciousness into host bodies.
Hugh Jackman returns for "Days of Future Past" as Wolverine, while Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart reprise their roles as Magneto and Prof. X with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy back as their younger versions.
