Director of XMen 1 and 2, as well as Days of Future Past, Singer has confirmed that the direction of XMen Apocalypse will be in his capable hands.

According to Comic Book Resources.com:

800px-Bryan_Singer_by_Gage_SkidmoreIt’s not much of a surprise move for the studio — Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” had the highest worldwide box office gross of the entire “X-Men” film franchise: $746 million. “X-Men: Apocalypse” was announced in December 2013, and is set to introduce the X-Men comics villain of the same name, taking place a full ten years after the events of “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Simon Kinberg wrote a script based on a story by Singer, Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris. Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker will produce. [SOURCE]

If you ask me, every lame or unsuccessful XMen film has NOT been directed by Singer.  The big exception is Matthew Vaughn’s XMen: First Class, but I award most of that credit to Jenn Lawrence.  Mystique is a phenomenal character!  Actually, The Wolverine was pretty awesome, so maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about.  Who cares, no one reads this far anyway…

As for Apocalypse, he first appeared in X-Factor #5 (1986) and has been a main antagonist of the XMen ever since.  He was featured in the very popular XMen animated series and was an enemy of mutants and humans alike.  I love the idea of powerful, almost unbeatable enemies versus a storyline with shadowy, super cliche government agencies.  So I can’t wait until XMen: Apocalypse hits the screen on May 27, 2016 !!
