‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Have A Mutant Fight Club Says Bryan Singer

The first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club. But how could someone not break that rule when it involves mutants? In the many X-Men and Wolverine films we’ve seen, the mutants always seem to be at odds, with the human factor also posing a threat to peace between mutants and Homo sapiens. Each mutant conflict is almost always for the survival of humanity, but at times when we see Professor X and Magneto on opposing sides it’s for their respective ideology/

Now X-Men: Apocalypse will bring in a new fight to the mutants. A mutant fight club will be seen in the upcoming sequel according to director Bryan Singer. More on the story and images below.

Singer confirmed that there would be a mutant fight club on Instagram, but this wouldn’t really be the first time we’ve seen an image like this:

If this looks familiar, it’s because concept art of the same image was released before Apocalypse went into production. Here is that image:

While things can change from concept to production, the caption provided by Singer does confirm that Ben Hardy, who plays Angel, will be in this scene. When describing Angel at Comic-Con last month, Hardy said that the winged-mutant would have “serious badass wings.” Interestingly enough, early concept art revealed Angel had mechanical wings, which would lead fans to believe that the character would undergo the same transformation in the comics that would turn him into Archangel, the mind controlled Horseman of Apocalypse, who had his stripped wings replaced with metal ones.

Wolverine was actually in a fight club of his own in the first X-Men film, but he was hiding his powers while fighting against humans. So it should be interesting to see who Angel will be fighting and if Apocalypse or one of his servants will free him.

Directed by Singer, using a script written by Simon Kinberg (who is also a producer on the film), X-Men: Apocalypse stars Even Peters, Lucas Till, Lana Condor, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn, Ben Hardy, Alexandra Shipp, and Tye Sheridan.

Fox will release the film into theaters on May 27, 2016.
