Judging by a new photograph published to director Bryan Singer's Instagram feed, it looks like the '80s-set "X-Men: Apocalypse" will be kicking it old school in a number of ways. In addition to be set during the first Reagan administration, the film will also dive into the mythology surrounding En Sabah Nur, a mutant also known as Apocalypse that has a history that stretches all the way back ancient Egypt.
The photo, which you can see below, shows Singer standing at the foot of a giant statue of Anubis, an Egyptian deity associated with the afterlife. In true throwback fashion, Singer tagged the pic "#notallgreenscreen," pointing out that "Apocalypse" will utilize both practical and digital sets in order to bring the epic to life.
Considering Apocalypse's history, it's likely that that Anubis is located somewhere on the villain's home turf; after all, the statue is more blue and gray -- similar to Apocalypse -- than the god's traditional black.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" opens on May 27, 2016.
