Shooting will take place at La Cité Du Cinéma sound stages, and locations around Montreal, Canada. Filming will run from April 27, 2015 through September 4, 2015.
X-Men: Apocalypse takes place a decade after Days of Future Past and is a seamless next step in the story. The altering of time has unleashed a new and uniquely powerful enemy. Charles, Erik/Magneto, Raven/Mystique, Wolverine and Hank/Beast are joined by young Cyclops, Storm, Jean and others as the X-Men must fight their most formidable foe yet – an ancient unrelenting force determined to cause an apocalypse unlike any in human history.

Four-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Bryan Singer will direct X-Men: Apocalypse from a screenplay that he wrote with Saturn Award winners Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, along with Simon Kinberg. Black Reel Awards nominee Lauren Shuler Donner will produce under the banner of her production company Donners’ Company; Simon Kinberg will produce for Genre Films; and Bryan Singer is producing for Bat Hat Harry Productions. Executive producers are Producers Guild of America PGA Award winner Todd Hallowell, and Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Josh McLaglen. X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a May 27, 2016 release date.
