X-Men: Apocalypse timeline revealed

apocalypse x-men

With the X-Men movie universe currently having two different time periods, complete with separate casts, the question of where the next movie, Apocalypse, would take place has been a heavily debated topic. Now, thanks to writer Simon Kinberg, we know the answer.

During The Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith podcast (at about 1:12 in), the writer of the X-franchise revealed that “the next movie [X-Men: Apocalypse] takes place in 1983.” This would place the movie ten years after the events of Days of Future Past. This should surely mean aged versions of the First Class mutants, taking place 20 years later than that movie, and maybe even a bald McAvoy’s Xavier.

SPOILERS: This gives the team plenty of breathing room to put in place the changes of the retconned timeline thanks to the events of Days of Future Past, and the upcoming film is expected to feature younger versions of the likes of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm and possibly Nightcrawler, plus Channing Tatum’s Gambit.

Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016 and is expected to see the return of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters.
