The early X-Men films played a huge part in making superhero movies the box office-conquering force they are today, and the series has since gone from strength to strength. The latest film, X-Men: Apocalypse, is due for release next year, and plans may already be in place to shoot the follow-up.

Den of Geek have reported that production offices will open in Montreal in November 2016 for a shoot to take place the following year. X-Men: Apocalypse was filmed there, and according to local paper Le Journal de Montreal, Bryan Singer may return to the director's chair for the seventh movie in the series.

The paper also quotes Michael Trudel, the president of Mel's Studios, where the bulk of X-Men: Apocalypse was shot. He says: "It was a miracle that we managed to attract an X-Men movie in Montreal in 2013. To convince Fox to return for a second and now a third is simply amazing."

Last week it was revealed that the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse would appear alongside the new Star Wars movie in December. According to producer Simon Kinberg: "Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser, but it's certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it."

X-Men: Apocalypse is due for release on May 27, 2016, and stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne.
