Bryan Singer Teases "Something New" From 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Set

Things are changing at the Xavier Mansion according to a behind-the-scenes image from next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse — or, at least, that’s what director Bryan Singer is teasing on social media.

Singer posted a photograph of himself on Instagram standing in front of what has traditionally been the door to the X-Men’s mutant-hunting computer, Cerebro. The caption, however, promised that “there’ll be something new behind” the door in Apocalypse. But what?

Apocalypse, while a follow-up to Days of Future Past, still theoretically takes place in the '80s, before the original trilogy of X-Men movies, which were set around the turn of the century. Whether or not that locks in whatever is behind the door for future movies is unclear, however; the end of Days of Future Past suggested a rewriting of the events of earlier movies, leaving everything up for grabs — including the contents of any particular room.

X-Men: Apocalypse, starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence and written by Singer, Simon Kinberg, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, is scheduled for release May 27, 2016.
