After the massive success of the previous X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, fans have wondered if it’s possible for director Bryan Singer to top its success with X-Men: Apocalypse. While we’re still in the dark if it can top last year’s success, a new statement from Singer has indicated Apocalypse may be longer.
Singer is quoted as saying the following:
“Usually they’re about two hours, but I might let this one be longer. There’s even an homage at the end — it’s going to get spoiled because they decided to use it in the trailer, which comes out in, like, six months — but it’s kind of a wrap-up of the six movies.”
Not only could X-Men: Apocalypse be the longest in the series, but a homage in the end would be a nice touch (and considering previous statements say that Apocalypse is the last of the trilogy a homage makes sense). The ‘trilogy’ started with First Class in 2011, continued with Days of Future Past last year and will end with Apocalypse next year.
Thoughts on this report? Would you like to see X-Men: Apocalypse be longer than previous films in the X-Men series?
