Late last week saw two great things launched for the upcoming next film in the X-Men franchise. This one is X-Men: Apocalypse. Yep, that Apocalypse! It’s actually three as the image above is also brand new!
First is the explosive, and plot packed, teaser trailer. Not only do we see the evil of the title but the rest of the mutants. Some have better luck than others. Not only that, we discover who Apocalypse is and who is his minions signify.
The other thing that was released, was the first teaser poster for the film. What does it show? Is it significant that half of the logo have been destroyed? Is this some fore-boding of what the film will end with?
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, 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 with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
