Only ‘90s Kids Will Understand All The References In The Next X-MEN Movie

That's right: Fox's premier superhero franchise is taking us to the worst decade ever.

Round up your flannels, take your slap-wrap bracelets out of storage, and French roll your Cavariccis: according to Coming Soon, the next X-Men movie will be set in the '90s. 

The information comes to us directly from X-Men producer Simon Kinberg, who told the site that "the next one is set in the ’90s". That's it. That's the whole quote.

There's some question as to which X-property Kinberg was referring to (Coming Soon suggests that he may be talking about Josh Boone's New Mutants), but let's assume for the time being that he's talking about the standard X-Men franchise. Y'know, the one Bryan Singer's been slowly choking to death over the past decade and a half. What storyline do you think they might end up tackling?

And more importantly, will Singer return to direct? X-Men: Apocalypse is supposed to finish out a trilogy of films that began with X-Men: First Class, and the word on the street was that this would be Singer's last at-bat. I don't know about you guys, but I'm way more concerned about whether or not the next X-Men will have a director with some actual vision, rather than what time period the film might arbitrarily take place in. 

Anyway, who wants to Photoshop me Wolverine in a Hypercolour shirt? Please leave it in the comments below.
