Singer teased the end of the film will features an all-out battle with the super villain Apocalypse.

“The end of the movie becomes an all-out battle with a force that’s very formidable. He’s a hard man to break, Apocalypse. It’s why he thinks he’s God,” Singer told Empire magazine.

Talking about the popular comic book villain’s transcendent abilities, Singer said: “It’s part of the mythology of Apocalypse’s size, but I couldn’t go full Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man where he’s just Giant Apocalypse, swatting at things. I did something a little interesting in how I addressed the size thing, but I think the audience will get a kick out of it.”

No surprise, Magneto is again key.

“He’s one of the most pivotal characters. Fassbender really delivers here in non-traditional comic book style. There are scenes here you will not see in any other comic book movie. I really think Erik goes through one of the most complex journeys in the movie,” Singer said.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a May 27 release
