If you have a name like En Sabah Nur, you better believe that your decorating theme will be Egyptian. In the case of X-Men: Apocalypse though it also helps that the titular main villain is from Ancient Egypt. Despite the fact that he survived multiple millennia of history, Apocalypse still likes a little piece of home, even in the 1980s. A new photo from the set of Apocalypse reveals a look at En Sabah Nur’s lair, and from the look of it, it’s no X-Mansion. Of course, the first look at Apocalypse himself was less that seriously received by fans, but all things considered, you’re probably going to like his homebase.
Courtesy of Bryan Singer‘s Instagram feed, let’s indulge in a little Ancient Egypt chic:
So the question is what is this for? Is this a flashback to ye good ole days in Ancient Egypt, or is Apocalypse bringing Ancient Egypt back to the 80s? The set looks a little new to an exploration of something actually ancient so a flashback or present day setting seems like the most obvious explanations. Singer seems pretty proud of himself for embracing the practical, not to mention finding a way to indulge himself in a Raiders of the Lost Ark callback.
So what does all this add up to? I guess we’ll have to wait for the movie to come out to find out for certain. X-Men: Apocalypse will be in theaters everywhere next May.
