'X-Men: Apocalypse': First Look at Psylocke, Magneto & Apocalypse!

Here’s your very first look at Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and the villain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) in character for this X-Men: Apocalypse EW cover!

“The problem with Days of Future Past is it’s hard to sequelize,” writer-producer Simon Kinberg, who’s been with the franchise since 2006, told the mag. “Whenever we talked about the sequel, the challenge was that it needed to feel not necessarily bigger visually, but that the stakes needed to feel bigger.”

“It’s a chaotic world of conflict and war and destruction,” director Bryan Singer said about the movie. “It’s one giant civilization that now requires one giant culling. That’s why he needs ­special assistants in this process.”

The film will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

Michael Fassbender Says Westerns Were On His 'Fantasy Career' List

Michael Fassbender heads out of a building after an interview on Thursday afternoon (May 28) in New York City.

The 30-year-old actor recently chatted with EW about his new film, Macbeth, as well as western thriller, Slow West.

“In terms of my fantasy career, yeah, [westerns were on my list]. In this case I think it comes from the time when I was a boy and watching Westerns and being really engrossed in them. And at that young age thinking to myself how much I’d love to be in one,” he shared.

Michael added about bringing the film to New Zealand to shoot, “He [Wayne McCormack, the horse wrangler] was the one who told me that this was the first Western with New Zealand standing in for America. I hope it entourages more people to make Westerns in New Zealand. The crews are fantastic down there.”
