Fox has released the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Directed by Bryan Singer (who has directed four of the six X-Men films), the film stars James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawerence as the mutant superheroes who must lead the gifted young students into battle against the titular villain (Oscar Isaac), who some claim to be a god. And as if fighting the world’s first mutant wasn’t enough of a problem, things get more complicated when Professor X’s (McAvoy) former friend Magneto (Michael Fassbender) allies himself with Apocalypse.
FOX doesn’t seem to mind that they cannot play in the Marvel Studios sandbox. As much of a disappointment that is to the fans, there is no denying that the success of the X-Men film franchise has spawned exciting spinoffs like the Wolverine films and the upcoming Deadpool, the latter of which got its own Super Bowl spot tonight.
Now in anticipation for X-Men: Apocalypse summer release, the studio has released a Super Bowl spot for the upcoming X-Men sequel , which you can check out here below.
While the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film wasn’t well received by film critics, it was still a big hit with audiences, and a lot closer to the ’80s cartoon then the first trilogy. the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, will introduce the hockey mask wearing vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), the nefarious scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and the Shredder’s (Brian Tee) dim-witted mutant henchman Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE’s Sheamus).
But the new characters don’t stop there. Producer Michael Bay has one more character to confirm for the sequel, and it is most definitely a fan-favorite. According to the producer, Krang, the living brain who hails from Dimension X will make an appearance. More on the story below.
Empire Magazine has been revealing a new character photo every hour from their X-Men: Days Of Future Past exclusive cover set. Nerds everywhere are frothing at the mouth over the photographs, sometimes in a good way…sometimes not. A lot of the characters that we are familiar with haven’t changed a bit, but there are a lot of new faces for us to argue over. Honestly, I do believe director Bryan Singer is trying to do his best to bring audiences something they will love, but whether he makes it happen is going to be up to the ever fickle public opinion.
Check out the set here below of covers revealed by Empire today; we’ll be updating the photo gallery as new cover images are released. There will be 25 characters on 25 covers in all.
