Briefly: This is a damned cool spot. As much as I loved seeing Krang for the first time in the just-released new teaser for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows, the total destruction witnessed in this new spot for X-Men: Apocalypse might be the coolest Super Bowl trailer thus far (well, unless you count Ant-Man and Hulk fighting over a Coke as a Super Bowl trailer).
In the film, “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.”
