‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Hit Theaters On May 27, 2016

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will Hit Theaters On May 27, 2016

After next year’s “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” which is going to be a supersize smorgasbord of every character Fox seemingly has the rights too stuffed like a Blondie sandwich into the movie, what we of course need is announcement of even more, right?

Well, here it is: “X-Men: Apocalypse” will hit theaters on May 27, 2016, thus kicking off over two years of rumors, speculation and more even before ‘DOFP’ has hit theaters. Hooray? No word on who will direct, but with Bryan Singer getting in on the announcement action it’s probably safe to say he’ll be at least producing if not more. Where could this saga go next? Maybe in the next one, Fox will exercise the rights to every villain in their arsenal instead! But after the glut of 2015, will we even have an appetite for this in 2016?

Wow, loved Apocalypse as a child growing up. A good choice to lead on from Days of Future Past. Let's hope more female heroes like Jubilee and Yukio will return, even the return of Jean Grey would be fantastic, can't wait.


Someone needs to be filtering this comments section. I don't visit The Playlist to read hate-filled bile like this.


Ugh. Don't give up the f*cking dayjob Jagernauth. You hateful piece of sh*t.


Kevin Juggernaut should be the villain. He could just be good and love everything until 2 months before the movie comes out and Girls has a bad episode and everything that was cool 8 weeks ago isn't anymore and he turns into a villain and tells everyone about how much he's over everything he used to like recently.

Then the playlist staff could cameo and do a montage of the what worked and didn't work in Kevin Juggernauts performance. Then Kevin could give that a positive review and urge everyone to check it out when it comes to your local browser if it does. Then he'll post the article prefaced with a suicide note split into 3 different page views that take forever to load.


This article is just made to be offensive. Sir, I and many other people have no care whatsoever if you don't like the X-Men films. They're finely crafted films regardless of how many characters they have in it. Quit having your man period while writing a news article, and maybe you'll be hired somewhere real for once.


mmm huh, Apocalypse is the villain.
