With just over six weeks to go until the debut of X-Men: Apocalypse, a new featurette has been released; showcasing the powers of the Four Horseman – Magneto, Storm, Angel and Psylocke. Additionally, Michael Fassbender speaks about the movie’s antagonist Apocalypse, explaining how threatening his powers will be and what his intentions are: “He is the original mutant, all powerful, and he magnifies all of their powers. He’s decided to take judgement on the world so he’s gathered a team of mutants to wipe out the human race”.
Set for release on 19 May, the movie will take place ten years after the events of 2013’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Since their exposure to the world the mutants have received a mixed reception; with some believing they are holy figures. Because of this, worshipers reawaken the immortal mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who possesses God-like powers. Therefore, it becomes the X-Men’s responsibility to prevent this terrifying being from destroying all life on Earth.
Returning mutants include James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver). New cast members will also be present, such as: Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Oilivia Munn and Tye Sheridan who will play Storm, Psylocke, Jean and Cyclops. Others include Ben Hardy (Angel) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler). See the featurette below:
