According to a recent interview with Simon Kinberg, the X-Men are finally heading to the 90’s in the film universe.
The 2011 film, X-Men: First Class, was set in the 1960’s and its follow-up, X-Men: Days of Future Past, took place in the 1970’s, and the next film about to release, X-Men: Apocalypse, is set in the 1980’s. So it is about damn time our favorite unitard wearing heroes crop up in the 90’s.
Kinberg, the producer of the franchise, confirmed in an interview the setting for the next installment would be the 90’s. However, he did not reveal if it was HIS next installment or director Josh Boone’s in-development New Mutants project.
Boone’s New Mutants is a film that will follow a whole different group of X-Men including Magik, Wolfsbane, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Warlock. However, some reports say that Alexandra Shipp‘s Storm (who will appear in this summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse) and James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier playing major roles in the film as well.
