[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6047:]]Before we delve into Apocalypse, let's review a snippet about what Bryan Singer previously said about a specific character in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

He said that one character in particular would be all-CGI.

What ended up happening was, shortly after Singer mentioned that, Peter Dinklage was announced as part of the cast, with everyone assuming Dinklage's character would be the one to get CGI.

However, Singer shot down that notion and said Dinklage would be playing as himself.

Now getting back to Apocalypse, Bleeding Cool spoke to Bryan Singer a while ago and was recently allowed to post snippets of their X-Men: Days of Future Past interview.

They ask Bryan Singer if Apocalypse will be featured, with their report stating Singer's face "immediately" changed with the reply of, "I can't tell you."

BC goes on to mention that if they had to take an educated guess based on Singer's body language to their questioning, it seems likely that Apocalypse would be an all CGI character.

Singer was also reported to look "nervous" and stated, "This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together…"

X-Men: Days of Future Past has a July 14, 2014 release date starring Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, ShawnAshmore, with Hugh Jackman reprising as Wolverine, and returning cast members Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan.
