X-Men: Apocalypse Concept Art Teased by Director

By   /   Feb 17, 2015

The next installation in FOX’s X-Men franchise will be X-Men: Apocalypse, and though it won’t be entering into main production until this April, director Bryan Singer has been eager to share some concept art that teases the emergence of the movie’s main supervillain.

As suggested by the name, the ‘first mutant’ En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse will feature as the primary antagonist of the film.

One of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe, Apocalypse has existed for a stupendously long period, and after millenniums of slumber will rise again to challenge the mutants all over the world.

Bryan posted some concept art on his Instagram account, which seems to be a indicating the Celestial Ship, being looked at by a rough silhouette of perhaps Wolverine. The art is done by none other than Grant Major, who previously worked on The Lord of the Rings.

The Celestial Ship in the concept art seems to be a method of tackling the introduction of Apocalypse into the modern X-Men universe, following the events of Days of Future Past.

Oscar Isaac will be playing as Apocalypse for the film. In order to assess the villain’s malleable looks and ‘magical trickery’, a mix of practical and digital effects will be used.

X-Men: Apocalypse seems to be further adding beef to the Marvel universe, especially with Marvel Studios itself going towards the more ‘cosmic’ villains in the form of Thanos.

The introduction of Apocalypse seems to fit perfectly with the gradual introduction of Thanos and his motives, which will definitely be further unveiled in future Marvel Studios movies.

X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
