With Days Of Future Past, Bryan Singer turned out arguably the best X-Men film to date. Whilst there were a couple of issues with it – mostly to do with wibbly wobbly timey-wimey garbage – it was still a strong offering for a guy who had been away from the director’s chair of the franchise for so long.
Many of you will have seen the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer – and while it has its bona fide hell-yeah moments (the return of Quicksilver! Bald Professor X!), there were more downsides to it that suggested we might be in for a bumpy ride. It’s important to keep those dodgy elements in mind, if only to avoid potential disappointment.
