The Next X-Men Movie to be set in the 1990s
Recently, franchise producer, Simon Kinberg, has confirmed that the next X-Men film will take place in the 1990s.
The information was confirmed during an interview with Comingsoon.net, in which Kinberg stated “The next one is set in the 90s”. This would follow a trend that Fox has been pursuing with their most recent X-Men films, with X-Men: First Class having been set in the 1960s, Days of Future Past in the 1970s, and Apocalypse set in the 1980s.
However, Comingsoon.net did add that it was unclear as to what type of X-Men movie Kinberg was referring to, as New Mutants is also in development for a future release.
The most recent entry in the series, X-Men: Apocalypse, will be set in the 1980s and will feature returning X-Men characters, as well as newcomers, going up against the mutant villain Apocalypse. X-Men: Apocalypse will be released later this month on May 27th.
