X-Men: Apocalypse will be the next mutant movie following X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but will be more of a sequel to First Class.

The latest issue of Total Film magazine gives an update on the film from Bryan Singer.

Here are a few highlights about X-Men: Apocalypse:

"We're going to deal the the notion of ancient mutants - the fact they were born and existed thousands of years ago. But it'll be a contemporary movie - well, it'll take place in the '80s... The '80s is a period now - it's hard for me to believe that!"

"Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There's definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle."

Says the are close to go time: "we're currently breaking the story."

"I don't want to get too specific, but we'll introduce familiar characters in a younger time. That'll be fun to show the audience. I call these movies in-between-quels. It's a mind-f-ck sometimes in terms of where things fall in the timeline!"

X-Men: Apocalypse has a May 27, 2016 release.
