EW have scored some impressive images from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and the ten images can be found below.
We get to see Oscar Isaac as the chief villain Apocalypse, while Michael Fassbender appears as a returning Magneto, with the addition of a new suit. The cover of the latest edition of EW also features Olivia Munn as new mutant Psylocke, and I am definitely wanting to see more of her!
Also included in the images are Alexandra Shipp as a new Storm, returning stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Lucas Till as Havok, Evan Peter as Quicksilver (good to see him back!), and Bryan Singer as himself directing.
There are also a collection of headshots for Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Lana Condor as Jubilee, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler plus another look at Alexandra Shipp as Storm.
Fox will release the film on May 27, 2016.
Here’s how Marvel.com describe the Apocalypse story:
In the harsh, unforgiving desert of ancient Egypt, ruled by Rama-Tut, a band of nomadic raiders found an infant, gray-skinned and freakish in appearance, abandoned by the settlers of Akkaba. The nomads took the child for their own, giving him the name En Sabah Nur, “The First One,” and teaching him to be “strong” in order to survive the desert as a child.
In recent years, Apocalypse was somehow awakened by the arrival of Cyclops’ son from the future, Cable. Apocalypse made another move against Cyclops and his team, X-Factor, by pitting them against a team of his own creation, the Alliance of Evil. Although he never used his Alliance again, Apocalypse soon formed the Horsemen of Apocalypse to plague humankind, when his ideas to “cull” humanity in order for the rise of mutant supremacy were beginning.
