"X-Men: Apocalypse," the final film in the current "X-Men" trilogy, will examine the relationship between Mystique, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Beast, played by Nicholas Hoult, co-writer Simon Kinberg told Collider in an interview.

The film, set for release in May 2016, also will explore how characters Erik Lehnsherr, aka Magneto, and Charles Xavier influenced Mystique.

"Part of what’s really interesting about Mystique’s character is that she is, in some ways, the child of both Erik and Charles," Kinberg told the Collider. "She grew up with Charles and then she sort of became a woman with Erik, so her being the cross-pollination, if you will, of those two philosophies and those two men is something we can explore in the movie, too."

"X-Men: Apocalypse" is the close of the trilogy that began with “X-Men: First Class” and included “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

“I think that the friendship between Erik and Charles, which has always been so integral to the franchise, is something we’re continuing to explore and hopefully deepen with ‘Apocalypse,’” he said. “And the relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in ‘Days of Future Past,’ so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in ‘Apocalypse.’”

The notion of a trilogy doesn’t mean the main characters are coming to an end, Kinberg told CinemaBlend.

"We would want future movies with the main X-Men characters, but emotionally there are some stories you want to tell in three acts. Some stories you want to tell in five acts,” he said. “When we started ‘X-Men: First Class,’ there was this notion that we were creating arcs emotionally for the characters that we would culminate in a third film."
