Superhero fans had their Monday morning kicked off with a one more trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse from 20th Century Fox.
The footage shows how ancient mutant/”god” Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ex Machina), gathering his Four Horsemen of Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Angel (Ben Hardy). They also seem to have taken James McAvoy’s Professer Xavier.
Cue the Jennifer Lawrence led X-Men, comprised of the First Class/Days of Future Past heroes you’ve grown to know like Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), to save the day. Also joining the squad are much younger versions of the original X-Men trilogy including Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee). If only Sansa Stark had the powers of the Phoenix. Then she’d never put up with Joffrey or Ramsay’s bullshit.
Thanks to Hugh Jackman, we got a sneak tease of Wolverine’s appearance on Twitter before the trailer was released. It will be his 8th film as the character before his final go in the 3rd Wolverine standalone film.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27th, just weeks after Captain America: Civil War. Check out the latest and upcoming Piffcast episodes where we’ll cover both films…and then some.
