Joining Singer on the movie are X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days Of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg, and X2: X-Men United writing duo Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris.
This is the first time Dougherty and Harris have worked together on the franchise since X-Men 2, which for many remains the series’ watermark despite being over-cluttered with supporting characters and mythology.
Singer also alluded to Apocalypse’s origins, saying cryptically, “It’s snowing in Egypt.”
X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released on 18 July 2014. You can buy X-Men: The Ultimate Collection on Blu-ray for £26.24 at Amazon.co.uk.
