The Apocalypse is coming!
Well a 5,000 year old mutant who goes by that name is. Entertainment Weekly gives fans a detailed first look at the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse and its main villain and the our favorite mutants in exclusive photos.
Last weekend comic book nerds and enthusiast were all left drooling after watching the poor quality leaked trailer to the follow-up of X-Men: Days of Future Past. In the trailer we get a glimpse of the iconic ancient mutant Apocalypse played by Oscar Isaac, Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and fan favorite Pyslocke (Olivia Munn) in full costume.
The trailer didn’t come without some criticism as Apocalypse has been drawing comparisons to a certain Power Rangers villain whom Isaac has also played.
Entertainment Weekly gives us our first GOOD look at the film and blessed us with some great photos of the characters who will battle with 5,000 year old mutant. Returning Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Lucas Till (Havok) ,Nicholas Hoult (Beast) and Rose Byrne jumps back in the series reprising her role as Moira McTaggert.
The newcomers to X-Men movie lore are Alexandra Shipp who absolutely nailed Storm’s look, Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones (Jean Grey), Ben Hardy (Angel), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Lana Condor (Jubilee) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler).
Peep the photos from the film in the gallery below.
The characters look really good, and we are really excited for the next installment in the film franchise. X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theaters May, 2017.
