Today Bryan Singer announced that shooting has wrapped for the movie. For all the details, check out the latest below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
Director Bryan Singer has announced that after an extensive five-month shoot that kicked off in late April, X-Men: Apocalypse has officially wrapped production with the main unit. The second unit will continue to film until September 4th, but today should be a wrap on the main stars including, but not limited to, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Oscar Isaac.
It’s the third film to wrap this weekend following Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence.
Check out Singer’s announcement and shots from the wrap party, featuring X-Men-themed drinks, below:
It has all lead to this. All of the battles (both outside and within the group), action, relationships and time travel that the uncanny X-Men have endured have lead to this, their biggest story ever – X-Men: Apocalypse. Following the universe changing events of 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past comes this epic mutant adventure and with it a number of casting opportunities for performers of all ages.
X-Men: Apocalypse will follow the super powered mutants battling their most powerful foe yet, the devious and devastatingly dangerous Apocalypse. This legendary villain uses his incredible abilities to alter his physical form, access other mutant superpowers and telekinesis to recruit a cult-like group called the Four Horsemen to be his servants and do his bidding in an all out war against the X-Men.
