Now, when it comes to awesome behind-the-scenes glimpses of major superhero movies, there aren't too many people out there (Ryan Reynolds excluded) who can come close to matching X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer's perfect blending of frequency and bad-ass-ness. After all, he's been tweeting and instagramming all-but daily for months now, giving us our first glimpses of a whole lot of fan-favorite heroes (and a whole lot of plot teases) in the process.

Now that the vast majority of the film's cast has been revealed, though, Singer's reveals are increasingly metamorphosing into slightly surreal glimpses of awesome, if unclear, things happening on set.

Including, most recently, that time when:

Singer Schooled His Cast in Archery

Now, of course, that image, of Singer doing his best Robin Hood impression, could just as easily have been a prelude to him horribly missing the target, and then having his new Jean Grey, Sophie Turner, point and laugh at him.

And, so, he also released this:

In which, from the looks of Turner's reaction at least, Singer just kicked archery's ass.

The big question remaining, though? Just why was Singer teaching Turner how to use a bow and arrow? Could it, perhaps, have anything to do with this image, released a little over a month ago?

And, while we're on the subject of mysteries, just what is the deal with the other video Singer just posted, a stop-motion look at a giant gimbal (a means of keeping a camera level) in action?
