Bryan Singer had tweeted that there will be an "X-Men: Apocalypse" movie to hit theaters in 2016. The movie will be directed by none other than Singer himself. It would be a sequel to the much awaited "X-Men" movie to be released "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

Just like the 2011 "X-Men" movie which featured all the young counterparts in the movie, "X-Men: Apocalypse" will also feature the cast as their younger versions since the movie is to take place in the 70's.

Fans of the comic will know that Apocalypse, as in the title of the movie, is known as the oldest mutant. He is also known as "the first one" born in Akkaba around 5,000 years ago. The movie will showcase how the mutant, Apocalypse, who became the X-Men's greatest of nemesis. Children who watched the 90's animated series of "the X-Men" will remember him appearing in the series.

The upcoming movie "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will show Wolverine travelling back in time to warn their younger versions of themselves about the mutant race and since Wolverine is ageless it would be easier way for the directors to have him travel back and forth through time without changing in appearance.

The movie is a sequel to "X-Men: the Last Stand" and a much awaited follow up to "The Wolverine" whereas it showed a glimpse into the movie. The movie is to hit theaters on May 23, 2014 while "X-Men: Apocalypse" is to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

Fans out there can definitely feel the new breed of mutant forming as Singer is to direct the "X-Men" movies once again.
