Once again using his favorite medium for announcements, director Bryan Singer has revealed who'll be working with him to write X-Men: Apocalypse, the 2016 follow-up to next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past via Twitter.

In a tweet posted late last night, Singer shared a photo of himself in story conference with Fox Marvel superhero head honcho Simon Kinberg, as well as Dan Harris and Mike Dougherty, both of whom worked with Singer on X2: X-Men United.

According to Bleeding Cool, X-Men: Apocalypse isn't the only collaboration between Singer, Dougherty and Harris that X-fans can expect; it appears that the three have finally "cracked" an X-Men-related comic book project first teased almost a decade ago. Just how much X-Men can one man work on in a three-year-period, anyway?
