Could Apocalypse Be The Big Villain Of X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?

BleedingCool talked to director Bryan Singer about X-Men Days of Future Past. While getting some of the normal answers you'd expect they brought up iconic X-Men baddie Apocalypse. Which had Singer acting a bit odd when the name was mentioned and gave a cryptic response when asked if he would need performance capture. It's not confirmation by any means but he's a very likely threat along with Sentinels that could see a very bleak future for humans and mutants alike.

So, just mentioning Apocalypse might be a good idea…
On hearing the name Apocalypse, Singer’s face changed immediately but there was no point being timid. Might as well plough ahead with the question. Would he even consider using Apocalypse in the movies? How about in Days of Future Past?
His nervous answer:
I can’t tell you…
That was most interesting. So I leapt forward and asked if realising the character of Apocalypse would require performance capture.
And now Singer looked even more nervous.
This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together…
The non-verbal communication was even more compelling than what Singer was saying. If I had to bet on it, I would – we’ll be seeing Apocalypse in Days of Future Past, and he’s probably going to be a performance capture character.
