Spoiler: ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’ mid-credit scene links to ‘X-Men Apocalypse’

Fans shouldn’t proceed reading unless they want to know more of the exciting details surrounding the next X-Men film and how that sets up the newly announced X-Men: Apocalypse film.

The parallels of this version of Apocalypse and Thanos are quite obvious, so die-hard fans may not be too happy about the characterization of the classic X-Men villain.

First Showing reported the events of the mid-credits scene which has been “confirmed by at least two sources.”

“The credits bumper jumps back to the past with a young Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) in a ramshackle house in the desert eating dinner, clearly on the run from all the authorities who want to bring him down. While using a well outside to get some water, the young Magneto sees something fall from the night sky and crash to Earth nearby. Upon inspecting the impact zone, he encounters what is described as an “alien form” who is “towering, terrifying, with a twisted metal face and dark pits for eyes.” It’s Apocalypse and he says, “I have crossed rivers of time to find you.” Magneto asks, “Who are you? The alien responds, “I am your future.”

Suddenly Apocalypse merges with Magneto, who screams and blasts an insane amount of energy and shockwaves around him. This energy explosion levels everything around him, with a blast radius that goes for miles. As Magneto looks at what he’s done, he has a realization of the power he now holds and a villainous grin begins to form before the film cuts to black.”

Fans will be quick to pick apart the description and the fusion of the two characters and how this contrasts the Apocalypse in the comic books.

“…it doesn’t align with any particular existing story arc, least of all Age of Apocalypse. However, this tease doesn’t necessarily indicate that Apocalypse will only be used as a villain through Magneto,” First Showing writes.
