Bryan Singer - X Men: Apocalypse will have 'mass destruction'

Bryan Singer says 'X Men: Apocalypse' will have ''more mass destruction'' than previous films in the franchise.

The 48-year-old filmmaker - who helmed the forthcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' - revealed 2016's sequel to the upcoming film will have a character who allows them to delve into aspects which the previous pictures haven't dealt with.

He explained to Total Film magazine: '''Apocalypse' will also have more of that mass destruction that 'X Men' films, to date, have not relied upon. There's definitely now a character and a story to allow room for that spectacle.''

In the 'X-Men' comic books Apocalypse refers to a villainous rival, who is the world's first mutant, and Singer revealed the film, which will be set in the 80s, will explore the ''ancient mutants''.

He added: ''We're going to deal with the notion of ancient mutants - the fact that they were born and existed years ago. But it will be a contemporary movie - well, it'll take place in the 80s ... The 80s is a period now - it's hard for me to believe that.''

Singer will produce and co-write the script with 'Days of Future Past' scribe Simon Kinberg and the writers of 2003's 'X2', Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.
