Simon Kinberg Calls ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ The “Culmination” Of ‘First Class’ Trilogy

Without a doubt, X-Men: Apocalypse is definitely one of next year’s most anticipated films and tends to be a topic of conversation whenever anyone catches up with writer and producer Simon Kinberg. While speaking with Collider, Kinberg commented on where exactly the film fits into the franchise and what to expect from it.

It delivers on the dramatic story and emotion of the last two movies. It feels like the culmination of the four main characters really — McAvoy, Fassbender, Nic Hoult, and Jen. And it’s a bigger movie in both physical scale and I would say emotional stakes too because it is the culmination of this mini trilogy of stories.

While this will wrap things up for this mini-trilogy, it’s definitely not the end of things for these stories. What’s beyond for the franchise currently is unknown but director Bryan Singer made it clear recently that he isn’t done with the franchise just yet and with a new cast on board it’s likely that the focus will shift to them a bit more.

However, that doesn’t mean that he’ll be on board in the director chair. With no release date set yet for the follow-up, could we see someone else take on the helm for the next installment?
