Professor X Welcomes Home Raven (But She’s Not Having It)
What we know about the relationship between Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Professor X (James McAvoy) is that he's always trying to get her to see humans in the same hopeful light he does, but she ends up sounding like a certain someone when she rejects humanity's potential for goodness; Magneto (Michael Fassbender). As you'll remember from Days of Future Past, one of Xavier's longstanding goals is recruiting Raven (when she's being bad, she goes by Mystique) to his side of the human-mutant divide. Xavier believes a lasting peace with humans is possible, a position that Magneto has rejected ever since his parents were ripped from him during the Holocaust (that's right, it's the most brutal superhero origin story of them all). The problem's always been that when you grow up being a shape-shifting mutant, as Raven did, you get to see how ugly people can be first hand, time and time again, and you're therefore more likely to agree with Magneto's belief that people can't be trusted, and, perhaps, shouldn't be left alive.
In this new clip, Xavier tries to make Raven feel at home, but she's there to simply deliver a message, and a call to action.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens on May 27.
