Director Bryan Singer has revealed X-Men: Apocalypse is very different to what has come before.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new film will be a follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
"It's a big monster of a movie. The stakes are so high and global and the villain is so mythic. It's definitely an X-Men movie, but it really feels different," Singer said.
Meanwhile, the director also spoke about Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and Alexandra Shipp's roles in Apocalypse. The trio will star as younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm respectively. "They're as much a part of the movie as our main cast," Singer explained, adding, "Scott is not yet the squeaky-clean leader. Storm is a troubled character going down the wrong path in life and Jean is complex, interesting and not fully mature."
The upcoming Bryan Singer movie introduces the infamous Marvel villain of Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) as a power-mad mutant, bent on the destruction of humanity.
Producer Simon Kinberg recently teased Apocalypse, saying the film will alter the foundation of the franchise.
X-Men: Apocalypse is slated to release on May 27, 2016.
