Bryan Singer spoke with Yahoo! Movies about X-men Apocalypse, stating that the movie contains real, global stakes that, when coupled with new treatments of mutant powers, make for some epic action sequences.
“[You will see] some images and treatments of X-Men powers you’ve never seen before and some action and some pretty epic scope and some pretty major stakes. Like global stakes.”
“These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3. They are at times in their lives when they are at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and began.”
“The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that. In ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I produced and wrote the story for, we hark back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comics. I will say that in X-Men: Apocalypse, there is a chance -without giving anything away- that you may get closer to seeing what… you are interested in seeing. I know it’s something that I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.”
