While the titular villain of X-Men: Apocalypse has received some harsh criticism for not looking like his comic book counterpart, fans were still be excited by the fact that the upcoming film, which will end the First Class trilogy, would feature Marvel’s first mutant. We haven’t seen much in terms of footage since San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Maybe that was because everyone was just hyped to see Deadpool, which got a momentous positive reaction by everyone in Hall H.
Now we have a slight idea of when the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be released. According to the film’s producer, Simon Kinberg, it will be attached to theatrical showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. More on the story below.
The first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club. But how could someone not break that rule when it involves mutants? In the many X-Men and Wolverine films we’ve seen, the mutants always seem to be at odds, with the human factor also posing a threat to peace between mutants and Homo sapiens. Each mutant conflict is almost always for the survival of humanity, but at times when we see Professor X and Magneto on opposing sides it’s for their respective ideology/
Now X-Men: Apocalypse will bring in a new fight to the mutants. A mutant fight club will be seen in the upcoming sequel according to director Bryan Singer. More on the story and images below.
After a rousing panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, 20th Century Fox has released the first set of X-Men: Apocalypse images. The gallery features our first look at Oscar Isaac (who looks unrecognizable) at the titular villain (who looks more like Ivan Ooze), as well as the debut of Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe aka Storm, and Olivia Munn as Betsy Baddrock aka Pyslocke. We also get a look at Magneto’s new armor, as well as the students of the Xavier’s school surrounding their teacher in a familiar place.
While the Deadpool portion of Fox’s panel might have blown the roof off of San Diego Comic-Con 2015’s Hall H, it was X-Men: Apocalypse that brought the biggest lineup of stars.
The panel featured director Bryan Singer, Even Peters (Quicksilver), Lucas Till (Havoc), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor Xavier), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey/Phoenix), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Ben Hardy (Angel), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and screenwriter Simon Kinberg.
