Briefly: The very first trailer for X-Men Apocalypse launched earlier today, and probably stopped the Apocalypse / Ivan Ooze comparisons for good.
Seriously, the character looks astonishingly powerful, and with Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) on his side (among others) it’s going to be an impossibly tough battle for McAvoy’s Xavier and company.
If that bad-ass trailer wasn’t enough, Fox has just debuted a stunning new poster for the film, which features an angry Apocalypse crushing… what else but a human skull.
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.
Take a look at the new poster below, and let us know if you’re excited for the film!
