Though Bleeding Cool reports the film will follow directly on from X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“There’s a clear narrative thread that will string the two pictures together, and the character of Apocalypse is a good part of how this will work.” it reported.
“Several cast members of Days of Future Past will be wanted back for Apocalypse, including members of both the ‘past’ and ‘present’ timelines.
“I can’t find out who has signed or even who might have entered negotiations, but I do know who is on the shopping list and, in short, it’s everybody.
“Or, to be more precise, it’s a direct continuation, a next chapter that picks up the status quo at the end of Days and carries on developing it.”
* X-Men: Days of Future Past is released on 22 May 2014
