Diligent X-Men fans might have noticed a trend in the recent movies. X-Men: First Class which came out in 2011 was set in the 1960s and the follow-up movie X-Men Days of Future Past was set in the 1970s. The upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 1980s so it makes sense to assume that the one after this will be set in the following decade, and you will be right because it is.


Franchise producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that the next X-Men movie is going to be set in the 1990s. “The next one is set in the ’90s,” Kinberg told ComingSoon.

What’s not clear at this point in time if Kinberg was talking about the next proper X-Men film in this franchise or the New Mutants feature that’s currently in development under director Josh Boone.

The New Mutants movie is going to focus on teens with enhanced abilities, characters that will figure in the movie include Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Warlock, Magik and Dani Moonstar, among others. Professor Charles Xavier, played by James McAvoy, will have a major role in the movie as well.

For now, though, fans can just look forward to X-Men: Apocalypse which hits the big screen later this month, the latest trailer makes it seem like a movie that you may not want to miss.
