Bryan Singer Posts Mysterious New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Concept Art
Now that the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse has been expanded to include Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Mud star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Drumline: A New Beat star Alexandra Shipp as Storm, it's time to focus on other aspects of the film as production looms closer. Director Bryan Singer just teased a piece of concept art from Grant Major (who previously worked on Green Lantern) showing a mysterious figure standing at the entry ramp to some sort of ship. At first glance, I thought this might just be the Blackbird, but many believe this to be Apocalypse's artificially intelligent vessel known as Ship. Look!
Here's the piece of X-Men: Apocalypse concept art that Bryan Singer teased on Instagram:
Upon closer inspection, the ship does look more alien than the Blackbird, but that shadowy figure looks a little too small to be Apocalypse. Is it just me, or does that blurry figure resemble Cyclops a little bit? I can see a darker, brownish yellow color and maybe his tuft of hair sticking out of the top, similar to the 90s comic book design for the optic-blasting mutant. We'll probably have to wait and see what this really is until much further down the road of production. In the meantime, stay tuned to see what other tidbits we learn about X-Men: Apocalypse. 20th Century Fox has the film slated to arrive next year on May 27th, 2016.

Yaaawn. Another boring Bryan Singer post. OK, I'll bite. This is a ship of some sort. It's colors hint at what it could be. It is not Apocalypse's signature blue and gray colors; nor is it the X-Jet's dark blue. It's colors are in line with those of the Sentinels by Trask. Booooring.

My guess this has something to do with Apocalypse's beginnings.

I don't know enough about his origin to know what this is depicting. Anybody want to enlighten us?

The ship is the source of Apocalypse crazy powers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_(comics)

the "living ship" is how Apocalypse gets his current look and powers

Isn't that way too small though? Then again I only know it from the early 90s toon, where it was massive (think smartphone-shape star destroyer)
