(Warning - mild SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse may lie below, but seeing as they're from director Bryan Singer's own Instagram page, there's a pretty solid chance you're not going to have anything too major ruined for you. Proceed with caution and all that, though...)
X-Men: Apocalypse may still be just under a year away, but that doesn't mean we haven't already seen more than our fair share of hints, teases and cruelly-tantalizing glimpses of the movie. Now, sure, a handful of lucky fans may have seen a few minutes of footage at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but for sheer quantity of (often cryptic) information, there's no beating one particular source: director Bryan Singer's Instagram feed.
Y'see, as it turns out:
Bryan Singer Has Already Revealed a Whole Lot About X-Men: Apocalypse on Instagram
Including such gems as:
These Major Casting Announcements
Because sometimes, Twitter just isn't enough...
An Old Door with a New Secret
Specifically, it seems:
A Brand New (Old) Cerebro
Which, it seems, will be seen with a classic (new? old?) set of wheels for a certain Professor...
Meet the New Chair, Same as the Old Chair
Before things got concept art-y, with:
Our First Hint of Apocalypse's Ship
Another New Addition to the Cast
Even More Cerebro
Singer's fourth, as it turns out.
A Very Symbolic Staircase
Up which we'll presumably see our new mutants run, including:
Another New Arrival
A Hint of a Grittier '80s Setting or Two
A Glimpse of a Fallen Angel
Or, at least, an early imagining of him...
Followed Up by a Closer Look
Before Yet Another Casting Announcement
Which, in recent weeks, has proven to be an increasingly inspired-seeming piece of casting.
Along with a Returning Hero
Cry Havok, and let loose the dogs of war, and all that. Next up?
A Glimpse of Some Possible Inspiration
With great power comes grea...no, wait, that's the other guy.
Our First Look at the Film's 1983 Setting
Some Seriously '80s Outfits
Doubling up as our first look at Jean Grey and Jubilee in action.
Cyclops and Havok's Parents
Though, if Singer's planning on not pissing off a bunch of fans, who wants to bet that they're actually foster parents?
Next on the list?
A Fully Bald Charles Xavier
Low-Tech Trouble on the Way
For Magneto, it seems...
An Adorable Reunion
With the hallway, obviously.
A Subtle Character Reveal
Confirming Caliban is on his way...
A Shaven-Headed Storm
Pre-added-on-Mohawk, as it turned out...
A Better Look at That Entrance
Along with a sweet moment for Singer himself...
And a Brief Quicksilver Scene Tease
A (Not Very) Revealing Set Video
Though it seems Singer really likes hallways.
An Archery Tease
Training montage, anyone?
Cerebro, Fully Formed
Don't call it a call back...
A Hint of Some Heli-Good Action
Along with a tease of a possible aftermath of it, involving:
A Whole Lot of Destruction
A Sneak Peek at Apocalypse Himself
A (Sadly Comic-Con-Based) Moment with Gambit
We can still hope though, right?
Stryker Strykes Bayk
While we also saw:
Confirmation of a Visit to Cairo
Which is presumably where we'll first meet Storm...
A Huge-Looking Set
With magic green-screen boom operator.
A Presumably Non-Cameo-Teasing Group Shot
Though Mae Whitman, Yasiin Bey and Patton Oswalt sure would make for a weird-as-hell alternative super-team.
And, most recently?
An Insanely Awesome Glimpse of Apocalypse's Past
And...I can breathe again.
Nicely played, Mr. Singer. Nicely played indeed...
What do you think, though?
