Before the newest X-Men movie "Days of Future Past" is even in theaters, director Bryan Singer is tweeting that the next movie in the popular franchise will come out in 2016.
Entertainment Weekly tackled the interpretation of the rather skimpy tweet from Singer.

“Two words and a year: Not much to go on, unless you’re a big dumb cool nerd who knows that Apocalypse is one of the X-Men’s greatest enemies,” wrote EW's Darren Franich
. “If you were that kind of big dumb cool nerd, your head probably exploded when you read that tweet.”
EW confirmed with 20th Century Fox that “X-Men: Apocalypse” is planned for May 2016.
That’s it. No one knows who the movie will star, although Franich assumes Hugh Jackman will be in the movie.
X-Men fans and movie media jumped all over the idea of the planned sequel. Articles with prominently displayed “spoiler alerts” for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” popped up, including one on First Showing that connected the Apocalypse character to some of the final scenes
in the current movie.
Although a source apparently provided a copy of the script, First Showing called it “a pretty spectacular ending” but stopped there before handing over any more info.
The news of the latest X-Men movie was tweeted and re-tweeted.
