It won’t be coming until 2016, but X-Men: Apocalypse is attracting a lot of attention as it pretty much gives the whole franchise a soft reboot. It’s recasting actors, omitting some franchise favorites, and bringing in some new, and scary, supervillains. So, here’s what we know, so far.
It’s Set In The ’80s
Arguably the first thing we knew about it, it’s heading from the ’70s straight to the ’80s, although which specific time will be anybody’s guess.
It’ll Focus On Magneto And Mystique
We know, it’s shocking that a movie featuring what’s arguably the single biggest actress in Hollywood at the moment would put that actress front and center, but the story will apparently revolve around Magneto, Mystique, and their difficult relationship. Although really you’d think it’d be ol’ Chuck she’d have the bigger problem with, considering how he treated her in First Class, but hey, Mystique goes her own way.
