Director Bryan Singer Returning For 'X-Men: Apocalypse'; Young Jean Grey, Storm and Scott Summers Confirmed

The other day it was announced (via Deadline) that longtime X-Men director and director of the recent Days of Future Past film Bryan Singer will indeed return for the sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. This comes off recent allegations that the director had misconduct with a young male actor back in the 90's but the allegations have since been dropped. It was always assumed that the director would return for this epic sequel but now he has officially signed the dotted lines. The first plot details have also been announced which confirms that young "First Class" cast will indeed meet up with the original x-men younger self in the 1980's which include Scott Summers, Jean Grey and Storm
Apocalypse takes place a decade after Days of Future Past and is a seamless next step in the story. The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles (James McAvoy), Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet: an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history.
