"Apocalypse" literally means the end of the world, but long-time X-Men director Bryan Singer has gotten fans onboard to look forward to it when it comes to 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.

On Monday, the director posted on Instagram a new piece of concept art by Grant Major showing a mysterious figure standing in front of an ominious ship. Before we attempt to dissect it, take a look for yourself:

The most familiar piece of technology from the X-Men movies similiar to this the frequently used Blackbird aircraft, but given the more exotic and alien nature of this craft it could lead to something else -- something older.

In comics lore, the titular villain of the movie, Apocalypse, is born a mutant but gains much of his power upon finding an alien spaceship amongst hidden Egyptian caves that is later dubbed 'Ship.' The vessel becomes a base of operations for Apocalypse up until modern times, when it eventually rebels and becomes a base for various X-teams as well as playing a role in the origin of Cable.

Singer and 20th Century Fox are keeping their cards close to their vests, and haven't revealed what this is -- and probably won't until the movie is released. What do you think it is?
