The next "X-Men" movie, "X-Men: Apocalypse," will deal with one of the most powerful villains in the series, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who is named after the end of the world. The latest sequel could be one of the darkest in the series, which has director Bryan Singer has noting similarities between the "X-Men" characters and those on HBO's "Game of Thrones."
"There’s a crossover between ‘X-Men’ and ‘Game Of Thrones’, they’re both about a younger generation finding their powers, finding out who they are, and what their place in the world is," Singer said.
Just like "Game of Thrones," where no character is safe and can be killed at anytime, "X-Men: Apocalypse" writer Simon Kinberg said the movie will go to "darker" and "heavier" places that they've never gone before. He also added there will be "a lot more destruction and loss" in the film. The movie will also feature "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner, who will play a young Jean Grey.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" will tell the story of the world's first mutant, Apocalypse. The super villain returns after being away for thousands of years and ends up teaming Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants. Apocalypse looks to bring an end to the world to create a new one under his control. It will be up to the X-Men to come together with humanity and save Earth before it's destroyed.
In an interview with Empire magazine, Singer said the disaster scenes in the movie won't just be shown in New York City. He added that viewers will also see destruction scenes they've never seen on the big screen before.
"They’ll be visually different than things you’ve seen in these kinds of destructive movies, like Roland Emmerich’s films or Michael Bay’s. There are large-scale setpieces,” Singer dished.
