A couple of days ago a new poster for X-Men: Apocalypse introduced us to the Four Horsemen who will be plotting humanity’s destruction. Now it’s time for those on the other side to shine, including newcomers Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Kodi Smit-McPhee as young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Nightcrawler.
There’s also Professor Xavier (James McAvoy), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence – who it seems is on the good side for this one), and Quicksilver (Evan Peters).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.’
It’ll be in cinemas in May. [Read more…]
