Simon Kinberg Pushes Bryan Singer's Buttons In Latest X-Men: Apocalypse Set Photo

Director Bryan Singer has shared a new X-Men: Apocalypse behind-the-scenes image on Instagram, featuring screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg (Fantastic Four) goofing off on his war room set.

Looks like the United States military will be more active in X-Men: Apocalypse than they have been in previous X-Men films. We've seen them from time to time, but they've mostly stayed on the sidelines letting mutant-on-mutant mayhem go unchecked. In this snap, we can see a military command center equipped with maps and computers.

The set looks very familiar to the command center used in Jon Badham's War Games. That film, starring Matthew Broderick as a young computer hacker, was released in 1983 -- the same year X-Men: Apocalypse is set in. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Check out the image below.

X-Men: Apocalypse is being directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past), based on a script written by Simon Kinberg (Fantastic Four). The cast includes Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Rose Byrne, Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, Oscar Isaac, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, James McAvoy, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Ben Hardy, Josh Helman and Lana Condor.
