“X-Men: Apocalypse” will be directed by Bryan Singer. The film supposedly picks up 10 years after where “Days of Future Past” left off and now there is an even bigger threat than the previous film’s sentinels on the way. Apocalypse is coming and he is ready for battle. According to the Marvel Comics Database Apocalypse is En Sabah Nur which translates into “The First One.” The end credits of “Futures Past” shows a brief clip of him messing with the pyramids in Egypt which suggests that he may be ancient and may have been around longer than anyone else having had thousands of years to hone his skills. The released image of Apocalypse is quite menacing indeed.
