X-Men: Age of Apocalypse

Bryan Singer’s Twitter quote which brought about the ‘Apocalypse’, take a look!

 

X-Men: Age of Apocalypse: Charles Xavier is dead – killed twenty years in the past during a freak time-travel accident – and the world that has arisen in his absence is dark and dangerous indeed. The Darwinian conqueror Apocalypse rules with an iron fist, ruthlessly enforcing his dictum that only the strong shall survive – and in Apocalypse’s long shadow, hidden among a downtrodden humankind, are a group of ragtag freedom fighters led by Xavier’s oldest friend, Magneto: the Amazing X-Men! When Bishop, last survivor of the true Marvel Universe, locates the X-Men and explains how the world went wrong, these embittered mutants and their tenuous allies must risk everything – and undertake a dangerous and multi-pronged quest – to put things right! The comics event of 1995 is collected in one deluxe oversized hardcover!

  1. I am pretty sure Singer’s announcement was that Apocalypse was going to be the next Big Bad in the X-Franchise.

    Age of Apocalypse is an alternate timeline story where Apocalypse took over the world because Xavier died before establishing his X-Men.

    As much as I would like to see alternate versions of the characters we already know from the cinematic worlds, I honestly cannot see them attempting this.

  2. Could be, I agree. Have you read the supposed post-credits sequence for DOFP film? Puts an interesting twist on it as well.
