X-Men movies may mostly be set in the US, but mutants do get around – the world that is – for various scenes.

Just look at the young Magneto who was raised in 1940s Poland or Wolverine’s travels to Japan in his second solo flick (fun fact: I was staying in a hotel room located directly above an alley they used to film one of the scenes).

And now X-Men are taking us to ancient Egypt for a one-on-one with the first known mutant – Apocalypse.

Director Bryan Singer took to Instagram this week to give fans a sneak peek of the historic set in ‘X-Men Apocalypse‘ – and it is huge!


The 49-year-old filmmaker is seen standing in front of a very tall statue of Anubis and surrounded by Egyptian hieroglyphics.

In the caption Singer said it takes him back to ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’.

Personally, it has me reminiscing over the first few seasons of ‘Stargate’.

Earlier this month Entertainment Weekly released first images of the cast in their superhero costumes.

Is the first image from the set in line with what you were expecting?
