The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ trailer is upon here, all praise Apocalypse!! Oscar Isaac will portray En Sabah Nur (better known as Apocalypse), is a centuries-old mutant who was worshipped in Ancient Egypt as a God. After awakening in the 1980s, he is dissatisfied with the state of the mutant’s on the planet, and goes on to recruit Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to be a part of his Four Horsemen to help him cleanse the world.
I’ve always been a great fan of the X-Men Franchise, so i’m definitely excited to catch the latest installment. I think my favorite thing about the X-Men franchise is that instead of rebooting the series it decided to keep the history and continuity of the earlier films. Which probably had more to do with keeping Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. And to rectify the not so popular ‘Last Stand’, and the status of the staple X-men characters it went back and time and retconned it. GOTTA LOVE COMICS!!
X-Men Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27th.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
