Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris and Mike Dougherthy co-wrote X2 and have become part of a "brain trust" that will be working on expanding the X-Men universe, Cinema Blend reports.
X-Men: Apocalypse will be a sequel to the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past but will only feature the younger cast of the X-Men, IGN reported. This was confirmed when Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart said in a recent interview that they have not been approached for X-Men: Apocalypse, added Cinema Blend.
Creating an entire creative team around a comic book film is becoming very popular. Man of Steel utilized this style and Sony did the same in regards to their expansion of the Amazing Spider-Man universe. Of course, Marvel also has its own team working on its Cinematic Universe.
