The trailer includes a peak of Oscar Isaac before becoming “Apocalypse,” and teases out a brief shot of Wolverine’s claws without actually showing Hugh Jackman. (Jackman also posted a 7-second clip from the trailer on his Instagram account Monday morning.)
In Bryan Singer’s “Apocalypse,” the mutants take on the Four Horseman in a battle that looks like a superhero movie and disaster film folded into one. Here’s the official synopsis:
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 (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.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” opens on May 27th. Check out the new trailer, below.
