The world needs the X-Men, again. Fox has just released the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Though the title heroes of Marvel have faced many mutant and human threats before, they have never faced one as powerful as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Now, after awakening from a great slumber, Apocalypse has gained the powers of a god, and recruits Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and three other powerful mutants to be his Horseman to help him cleanse the Earth of humans.
So it’s up to Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy) students to stop them from succeeding. Foes are now allies and former friends believe in the gospel according to Apocalypse. Check out the full trailer below.
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.
20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse starring James McAvoy (Victor Frankenstein), Michael Fassbender (Macbeth), and Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), all of whom will reprise their roles as Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively. Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the titular villain. Directed by Bryan Singer, the film marks the end of the First Class Trilogy.
In the film, En Sabah Nur is considered the very first mutant of human civilization. Worshiped as a god, the immortal mutant has a collection of powers that no single mutant can stop. After millennia of slumber, Apocalypse will awaken, disappointed in the state of the world. He recruits four of the most powerful mutants he can find, which includes a demoralized Magneto, to create a new mutant world order. Now, the X-Men must ally themselves with former enemies to stop Apocalypse from succeeding with this plan. Check out the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse here below.
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.
