That Bryan Singer fella sure does love social media. Continuing the path that he has taken to connect directly with fans for quite some time now – and ramped up even further during the production of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the director of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse has been giving his followers a fairly steady stream of cool photos and surprisingly-informative behind-the-scenes content. Today we received another tidbit from him – check this crazy photo of the whole world going sideways!
Yes, this is a very early shot of one of the elaborate scenes involving Evan Peters’ Quicksilver doing his whole “I speed up and the world slows down” trick. Many folks would say that Quicksilver is one the major high points of the recent Days of Future Past installment of the popular X-Men film series, and I can’t say that I’m really looking to disagree with them. The Avengers: Age of Ultron version of Quicksilver, on the other hand… good, but not quite as memorable.
I strongly encourage everyone to go become a follower of Singer on Twitter and/or Instagram, as he drops these little nuggets of awesomeness fairly routinely. In case you’ve been living under some sort of hard, stone-like structure, X-Men Apocalypse is the conclusion to the “trilogy” of films began with X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The new film is slated to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
