Bryan Singer is really trying to break the Internet.

A few weeks ago, a few images were released showing Singer’s great progress with the current filming of X-Men: Apocalypse while giving us a glimpse of the titular villain and his Horsemen. Then a week later Singer reveals to the fans that there’s a possibility of a crossover with FOX’s second Marvel property, Fantastic Four.

Today, Singer is keeping with his unrelenting barrage of awesomeness as he releases a few set photos from the film on Twitter and Instagram, including a picture of the return of an old friend!

We can see with these pictures that Singer spends some of the film’s focus on Apocalypse’s origin, notated by the Egyptian-themed sets. The size of his sets are impressive, and seeing the size of Singer while standing next to a statue in one of the pictures, with the hashtag “notallgreenscreen”, certainly shows his appreciation and drive to creating a solid story.

And speaking of appreciation, in one of the images, we see that the man who was with Singer at the beginning of all of this, the incredible Patrick Stewart! Alongside well-known director Jason Reitman, Singer and Stewart are seen hanging out by the monitors, no doubt giving critiques and tips to the young cast.

The Days of Future Past sequel continues the stories of Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank (Nicholas Hoult), Charles (James McAvoy), and Erik (Michael Fassbender) while also bringing a slew of new mutants into the fold: Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Jubilee (Lana Candor), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), and Angel (Ben Hardy).

What do you think of the set pieces so far? Do you like the direction Singer is going with the film? Leave a comment below and let us know!

X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in theaters on May 27, 2016.
