Marvel’s mutants face a big blue world- ending threat
The best bits from the X- Men: Apocalypse trailer, analysed.
Ancient Egypt – the home turf of En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse. Expect a fair bit of flashback action.
Apocalypse recruits four horsemen – Magneto, Storm, Archangel and Psylocke – who attack Xavier’s mansion.
Mystique leads the younger X- Men ( and returning CIA agent Moira MacTaggert), but to where and why?
The new( ish) kids on the block: Jean Grey ( Sophie Turner), Nightcrawler ( Kodi SmitMcPhee) and Cyclops ( Tye Sheridan).
Apocalypse can change size in the comics, but this fight with Xavier is likely taking place on the Astral Plane.
After centuries of slumber, the god- like Apocalypse wakes up to find a planet that no longer worships him, and he’s not best pleased.
Apocalypse may be a mighty god, but that doesn’t stop him from engaging in a spot of villainous monologuing.
Wiping out humanity and starting afresh is Apocalypse’s endgame – not too tricky when Storm can create giant water geysers.
A mohawk- sporting Storm rides in on lightning. She’s alone and disillusioned at the start of the film, which Apocalypse exploits.
James McAvoy’s transformation into Patrick Stewart is complete. He’s even rolling around on the chair from the first film.
Film- stealer Quicksilver returns, and he’s up to his old tricks zipping around Xavier’s school.
Archangel ( Ben Hardy) unfurls his metal wings and unleashes a volley of metal daggers.
