As the December madness rages, and all the trailers for epic blockbusters like Captain America: Civil War and Batman vs. Superman are released, the X-Men decided to throw their hat in the ring with the trailer of the latest in the series, Apocalypse.
The official synopsis reads:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
Also in the trailer, we could spot Sophie Turner as a young Jean Grey and Alexandra Shipp as a young Storm, and a glimpse of the introduction of Professor X’s shaved head. The trailer does much to whet our appetite until next year when we learn more in the X-Men saga.
X-Men Apocalypse will be released May 27th, 2016.
