X-Men: Apocalypse To Feature A Special Homage Scene, Says Singer


Here’s a rarity: a news story that mentions director Bryan Singer that doesn’t include a photo he’s posted on Instagram. Instead, in an interview at the San Pedro International Film Festival, he reveals that the next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse, is set to be his one of the longest X-Men films yet, and that’ll be partly because he’s shot a special “epilogue”.

“The cut’s a little long right now,” says Singer, “but I think it’s going to be a longer X-Men movie. The X-Men movies I usually I keep under two hours, but this one I may actually let be a longer movie because it’s sort of a wrap-up of six movies. It’s kind of a wrap up of X-Men 1, 2, 3, First Class, Days Of Future Past, and there’s even an homage at the end, a scene. It’s going to get spoiled because they decided to use it in the trailer which comes out in, like, six months, but it’s a really cool trailer. But it’s kind of a wrap up of six movies. So, it might run a little bit long.”

Sounds intriguing. Any ideas what that “homage” might be?

Singer seems to have a selective memory if the thinks that he usually tries to keep his X-Men movies to under two hours (the ones he’s directed are in bold, the others just there for comparison – in length order) :

  • X-Men: Days Of Future Past (Rogue Cut) (2015) – Past 2 hours 28 minutes
  • X2 (2003) – 2 hours 14 minutes
  • X-Men: First Class (2011) – 2 hours 12 minutes
  • X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) – 2 hours 11 minutes
  • The Wolverine (2013) – 2 hours 6 minutes
  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) – 1 hours 47 mins
  • X-Men (2000) – 1 hour 44 minutes
  • X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) – 1 hour 44 minutes

So, if Singer is admitting he thinks the current cut of Apocalypse is a little long, it could be pushing two and half hours, or more!
