It's expected that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be included as part of Fox's Saturday panel for Comic-Con 2013 in Hall H. With that is expected a major announcement in regards to Fox's X-Men universe as they take their franchise in a new direction, which will include an X-Force movie.

Now comes word that, like Thanos in Marvel's The Avengers, Ancient mega-villain Apocalypse will play a major role in all future X-Men and mutant related movies.

A source close to Fox had this to say.

"He's definitely a big part of Fox's whole plan for a big X-Men universe with spin-off movies. The Avengers really is the template here

Will he show up in Days Of Future Past?

"I won't say too much about that. You'll just have to wait and see."


Director Bryan Singer has played coy with the idea in the past, hinting that the 5,000-year-old human mutant may show up in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

One of the very first mutants, Apocalypse is both thousands of years old and a monstrous tyrant that has been a longtime foe of the X-Men. Apocalypse believes that only the strongest (whether mutant or superhuman) should survive. His body is a mix of organics and powerful celestial technology.

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23rd, 2014 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Jackman, Evan Peters, James McAvoy, Ellen Page. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.

    If they bring apocalypse to life I would love to see Christopher Judge of Stargate SG-1 fame and the voice of Magneto from the x-men evoltution take on this iconic role. It would be awesome.

    I like it as after Magneto, he's really the best villain they have. As long as they don't adapt Mr. Sinister I'm good. Maybe a shortened adaptation of Age of Apocalypse would be cool.

    @ed-wood Too much, if one were to ask me. However, I'll remain open minded.

    @jacob89 yea kind of makes me wish Disney had the rights to X-Men and Spider - Man so we could get some crossovers. But Marvel either way is really doing some great things

    It seems like they could tie him in as sort of a major player behind all the futuristic stuff. Maybe seed it in a post-credits scene like they did with Thanos in The Avengers.
