The new film will be a follow-up to "X-Men: Days of Future Past", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's a big monster of a movie. The stakes are so high and global and the villain is so mythic. It's definitely an X-Men movie, but it really feels different," Singer said.

Meanwhile, he also spoke about Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and Alexandra Shipp's roles in "Apocalypse". The trio will star as younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm respectively.

"They're as much a part of the movie as our main cast," Singer explained. "Scott is not yet the squeaky-clean leader. Storm is a troubled character who is going down the wrong path in life.

And Jean is complex, interesting and not fully mature. "It's fun to see someone struggling with their powers when you know one day they'll become the most powerful person in the world," he added.

The upcoming Bryan Singer movie introduces the infamous Marvel villain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) as a power-mad mutant bent on the destruction of humanity.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently teased Apocalypse, saying that the film will alter the foundations of the franchise. "X-Men: Apocalypse" will release on May 27, 2016.
