- Coming Soon July 1
X-Men: Apocalypse isn't scheduled to hit theaters until 2016, but director Bryan Singer isn't wasting any time drumming up anticipation. In his inaugural post on Instagram, the director revealed the first page of the script treatment for the superhero flick.
The picture is carefully cropped to reveal minimal details about the movie, but fans will only need one: "THE FOUR HORSEMEN." (For the uninitiated: that's a reference to the four mutants who serve Apocalypse — generally by wreaking havoc on Earth.) Based on the reference to the Nile, the story seems to pick up right where the post-credits sequence from X-Men: Days of Future Past left off, with the young Apocalypse assembling the pyramids in Egypt.
