X-Men: Apocalypse – Bryan Singer Teases Egypt Scene


Via Instagram, director Bryan Singer teased a scene that he’s currently shooting for X-Men: Apocalypse.  He also notes that it’s reminiscent of classic movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Check it out.

The giant Egyptian god statue shows that Singer is opting for a lot of practical effects for the latest outing of the X-Men.  Other than the image and some cryptic hashtags, one can only guess that this is most likely part of a scene for X-Men: Apocalypse showing the origins of En Sabah Nur, Apocalypse.  Regardless of what they’re filming, it would be amazing to visit the sound stage this is shooting in and experience the shear massive scale of the overall set.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a planned release date of May 27, 2016 and will be directed by Bryan Singer and written by Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris, and Michael Dougherty, and will star James McAvoy as Charles Xavier / Professor X, Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkhölme, Nicholas Hout as Hank McCoy / Beast, Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver, Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse, Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe / Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers / Cyclops, Rose Burne as Moira MacTaggert, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Kurt Wagner / Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as Jubilation Lee, Ben Hardy as Warren Worthington III / Angel, Olivia Munn as Betsy Braddock / Psylocke, and Lucas Till as Alex Summers / Havok.
