Just in from director Bryan Singer, news of something called "X-Men: Apocalypse" coming to theaters in 2016.

Singer made no mention of cast or crew or plot or any other relevant details. Movies.com, however, tells another story:

Apocalypse has an incredibly convoluted backstory, but in the simplest terms, he’s a mutant despot, born in ancient Egypt, with an idea of mutant supremacy in which only the strongest of mutants are worthy of a life. His schemes against the X-Men typically see him engaging in genetic experimentation or situations in which mutants are pitted against other mutants, for his own Darwinian results. In the “Age of Apocalypse” storyline, the X-Men experience an alternate future in which Apocalypse controls America as a ruthless mutant military state.

According to TheWrap, the project is a sequel to 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Fox has set May 27, 2016 for the film's release. Head to Movies.com for much more on "X-Men: Apocalypse."
