In a new interview with Yahoo! to promote the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Singer shed some light on some new details from the upcoming X-Men film, [X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267).
Singer says that we will see “some images and treatments of X-Men powers you’ve never seen before and some action and some pretty epic scope and some pretty major stakes, like global stakes.”
“Apocalypse is a pretty cool character,” Singer says of the villain played by Oscar Isaac. “X-Men is always centered around the fight between mutants and humans. This one is a bit different, it deals with the concept of ancient mutantism, gods and men. It deals with issues that are global. Apocalypse makes no distinction between humans and mutants, only between the weak and the strong. He as a character is what is so ultimately compelling.”
Singer seems pretty excited about everything which means that this could possibly be even better then Days Of Future Past which is my favorite X-Men film to date.
“These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3,” he states. “They are at times in their lives when they are at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and began.” Singer continues to say.
The director also teased some details on the new costumes that we'll get to see in the upcoming film.
“The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that,” Singer suggests. “In ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I produced and wrote the story for, we hark back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comics. I will say that in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ there is a chance -without giving anything away- that you may get closer to seeing what I think, Mr. X-Men News, you are interested in seeing. I know its something that I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.”
