‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer Introduces the God of All Mutants!

FOX

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse, opening in theaters everywhere May 27, 2016.

Fox just released the film’s trailer that introduces us to the God of all mutants, Apocalypse, while also proving that pictures aren’t always worth a 1,000 words. I think we all vomited in our mouths when we saw photos of Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. Now, seeing him in action, he’s pretty chilling. The way Singer shot Apocalypse makes him feel huge, no, massive, and the God-like presence is sold perfectly.

It’s also pretty awesome that X-Men: Apocalypse bounced between past and present, again, which are so great for the film’s characters and pre-existing universe.

But the biggest selling point, for me anyway, is that X-Men: Apocalypse will debut Jubilation Lee (aka “Jubilee”), played by Lana Condor and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), two of my favorite Marvel characters. It looks as if Psylocke is one of Apocalypse’s “Four Horsemen”?

My only complaint? NO CABLE. Maybe Rob Liefeld’s awesome creation will eventually see a place in the Marvel cinematic universe. But it doesn’t look like it will be in 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.

The film features James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Josh Helman, Lana Condor, and Ben Hardy.

    There, I said it, it hurts my ego just to think about it, but is the truth. Sorry.

    • I Am Colossus

      Well, it looks more fun.

    • Daniel Baldwin

      Definitely more lighthearted.

  • I Am Colossus

    K, it looks like its going to be epic but why was the climax of this trailer, him being bald? That made it funny.

    • Daniel Baldwin

      It’s meant for fans who have been waiting for it, I guess. That said, it really did make me giggle, so I’m right there with you.

      • I Am Colossus

        Yea, and its a spoiler that no matter what, he’s going to end up alive and bald.

    Haters are gonna hate,this looks like the Apocalypse from the comics,glad to see the yellow trenchcoat for Jubille and Olivia Munn from what we’ve seen so far looks straight out of a Jim Lee drawing.Also on the plus side no Wolverine so far.

  • Ermilo magana

    Brian Singer needs to let go the X men, first class was amazing compared to days of future past and this looks super generic its gonna be X3 all over again.

  • Jesse Gordon

    Psylocke was in Xmen 3 no debut here. The mohawk bad girl looks too much like Storm unless it is Storm *shrugs* honestly just glad to see Evan Peters back. I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence can make this unwatchable though.
