Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg spoke with IGN about how 20th Century Fox's upcoming comic book movies X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit will be connected.
Kinberg said X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit will all be "aware of each other" in their Fox-Marvel universe. "They certainly acknowledge each other," Kinberg explained. "Things that happen in one film are acknowledged by the others movies."
It sounds like much of the connection will belong with the altered history. Kinberg pointed out that in the mutants revealing themselves and dumping a football stadium on the White House lawn at the end of Days of the Future Past have an impact on the universe. Future films will acknowledge an alternate history than the one we know.
Kinberg added, "I would certainly say, the films are all going to be informed by one another."
X-Men: Apocalypse will open in theaters May 27, 2016.
