The bar for Fox’s mutant world has been raised ridiculously high this year by Deadpool, so all out word ending destruction seems like the proper way to up the ante with X-Men: Apocalypse. Oscar Issac plays Apocalypse, the world’s first and most powerful mutant, who gathers a quartet of Horsemen, including Angel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to destroy the world. The X-Men, old and new, gather to stop them, led by Professor X (James McAvoy) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). The continuity is still all kinds of screwy in the Xverse (Mystique is back being good even though she seemed to be the new person responsible for Wolverine’s adamantium at the end of Days of Future Past?) but the action set pieces look massive and there are tons of mutants that fans have been waiting for years to see on the big screen. The movie arrives on Memorial Day weekend and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
