Singer will direct the film from a script by Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.

X-Men: Apocalypse” will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne reprising their roles along with franchise newcomers Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Neither Ian McKellen nor Patrick Stewart will be returning as their older iterations of Magneto and Professor X.

The film is set for a May 27, 2016, release.
