Kinberg Calls "X-Men: Apocalypse" Culmination of Trilogy

While discussing the upcoming film "The Martian" at the Toronto International Film Festival, Simon Kinberg discussed the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" and called the film a "culmination," both in terms of characters and a trilogy.

"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," the producer and screenwriter told Collider. "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."

The film also marks the culmination of director Bryan Singer's work on the series -- at least for now, maybe? -- as he revealed he plans on directing "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" as his next project.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Oscar Isaac and many, many more, "X-Men: Apocalypse" arrives in theaters May 27, 2016.
