Is Apocalypse In Days Of Future Past? Bryan Singer Gets Nervous When Asked About It


apocalypseBryan Singer has been talking about the First Class sequel a lot lately. He’s revealed the cast on Twitter and discussed some plot details while on the Jack the Giant Slayer press tour. It looks like he may have unintentionally reveled one of the big secrets he was trying to hold back if his body language is anything to go by.

Bleeding Cool got a chance to chat with the director ahead of Jack‘s release in the UK. They of course used the opportunity to ask about Days of Future Past. Singer rehashed some of his time travel thoughts and how it will be used to explore destiny, fate, and if you can change that. Singer has also been on a tear talking about how there will be a character that is completely motion capture. He learned some new trick from Jack and is going to use them for the X-Men movie. BC just went ahead and asked what many fans have been speculating online- Apocalypse, the 5000 year old mutant terror, may be that character. Singer got nervous when asked. Here’s how the site described it:

On hearing the name Apocalypse, Singer’s face changed immediately but there was no point being timid. Might as well plough ahead with the question. Would he even consider using Apocalypse in the movies? How about in Days of Future Past?
His nervous answer:

I can’t tell you…

That was most interesting. So I leapt forward and asked if realising the character of Apocalypse would require performance capture.

And now Singer looked even more nervous.

This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together…

The non-verbal communication was even more compelling than what Singer was saying. If I had to bet on it, I would – we’ll be seeing Apocalypse in Days of Future Past, and he’s probably going to be a performance capture character.

So yeah it seems like it may be a pretty good bet Apocalypse will show up, if not be the main villain, for Days of Future Past. Bleeding Cool seems to be pretty convinced of it and all the clues seems to point to the fact he may well be the fully mo-cap character. What do you think? Did Singer spill the beans through his body language or was he just uncomfortable with the question? Do you want to see Apocalypse up on the big screen?
