Simon Kinberg Says X-Men: Apocalypse Is Bigger Than Last Two X-Men Movies

The title X-Men: Apocalypse is one that implies an ending, and one of a large scale. That's exactly the case, producer Simon Kinberg says of the film in a new interview with Collider.

"It’s a bigger movie in both physical scale and I would say emotional stakes too because it is the culmination of this mini trilogy of stories," Kinberg said. That word, "culmination," is one Kinberg uses frequently, though he points out that it's not the end of the franchise, just of the story that began in X-Men: First Class and continued in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

So what does "bigger" really mean? Well, it likely comes back to the titular character, a villain whose origins go back thousands of years. His ability to persuade others to his cause, as previously revealed, means the X-Men characters may have to fight within - both within their ranks and within themselves - this time around.
