On Monday(4/25) 20th Century Fox released the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set to premier on May 27th. The trailer reveals and hints at a lot of the excitement, action, and drama we’ll get to see soon, leaving the last few seconds to tease viewers with a fan-favorite cameo.
Check out the trailer here!
In the film, the X-Men are up against their most formidable foe yet, a god who goes by the name of Apocalypse (Oscar Isaacs). The first ever mutant in the X-Men universe, Apocalypse has amassed legions of mutants and absorbed their powers to become immortal and all powerful. And to make matters worse, he’s got four “horsemen”/henchman helping him wreak havoc on the world. #NewTestamentReference
As the trailer suggests, beloved telepath Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), is kidnapped by the Apocalypse gang, so it’s up to Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) to recruit a new team of mutants to save the day. In come X-Men icons like Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-Mcphee), and apparently Wolverine too from what the end of the trailer suggests. Looks like our favorite clawed Canadian will be back to help the youngsters out. Let’s just hope there’s no weird Jean/Cyclops/Wolverine love triangle this time since Jean and Scott are just teenagers in this film. Fans and media experts are hoping this means the Weapon X storyline will make it into the film too.
I am so excited for May 27th. Let me know what you think of the trailer and the upcoming film. I absolutely love X-Men (best part of Marvel in my opinion) and would love to get your opinions on the films!
