New International Trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse Teases Biggest Mutant Battle Yet
This new X-Men: Apocalypse international trailer, arriving from Portugal, once again reinforces the notion that Apocalypse will likely be the biggest mutant adventure yet, closing out the trilogy that began promisingly with X-Men: First Class and carried on, spectacularly, with X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Here's what we know thus far—director Bryan Singer is introducing us to the titular villain as the most powerful mutant of them all. Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) once amassed the powers of many mutants, and now has been awakened after thousands years of slumber. When he awakes, he's none too happy with the state of the world, so he recruits a team of powerful mutants, including the always spoiling for a fight Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse the earth by removing mankind and becoming the leader over a new world.
The good guys are lead by Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Professor X (James McAvoy), who must lead a team of young X-Men to stop Apocalypse. Your cast includes folks from the first two films in the trilogy, X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past; Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), and Evan Peters (Quicksilver)—the latter practically stole Future Past in his few scenes. Along with Isaac, new cast members include Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
And of course, there's been rumors of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) showing up.
X-Men: Apocalypse arrives on May 27.
