The mutants are back next year in X-Men Apocalypse, and after adventures set in the 1960s and 1970s, it’s time for Magneto, Professor X, Raven, Beast and co. to enter the 1980s.
EW has offered the first look at the movie with a cover and several images, including our first look at the villain, the titular Apocalypse, an ancient mutant with extraordinary powers that dwarf those of most others. While he was glimpsed at the end of Days Of Future Past looking largely like a normal human being, it appears several thousand years have changed him.
Along with a new villain, we get younger versions of characters we’ve seen before, such as Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), and Angel (Ben Hardy).
They all end up on different sides of a battle where the ancient mutant decides the world has gone to hell since his time and that things would be better if he were in charge, and so he recruits the likes of Magneto to help him.
The movie is due out May 27th, 2016.
