Earlier today, 20th Century Fox released the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, and it was no mere announcement. Even though the film is still over six months away, they packed plenty of reveals into 150 seconds including full-on looks at Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), Archangel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), and plenty of other new faces to the X-Men franchise. We also get our first official look at a bald Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and damn does he cut a striking figure.
Check out over forty X-Men: Apocalypse images below. The film opens May 27, 2016, and also stars Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, and Lucas Till as Havok, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, and Lana Condor as Jubilee.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
