Chaos! Mayhem! DESTRUCTION! 3 of my favorite movie going words. Sure, it’s nice to see some great character drama too, but nothing beats some good old-fashioned wanton destruction when I want to go shut my mind off at the movies. If this latest teaser from director Bryan Singer is to be believed, X-Men Apocalypse will be serving up a delicious platter of epic destruction when it hits theaters in May of 2016. Enough reading, check this thing out!
Eagle-eyed viewers have spotted a man wearing a blue cape in the background of the shot. It’s only a glimpse when the Singer pans the camera but the mysterious figure does bear a striking resemblance to how Apocalypse is often portrayed in the comics.
What do you think, is that our first look at the films titular villain? Fox is set to hold a Comic Con panel on Saturday, so I’m sure we’ll get an full review then.
Given that Singer’s return to the first great comic film franchise gave us the absolutely sublime X-Men: Days of Future Past, I’m more than a little excited for this flick. It’s surely going to be a huge hit when it finally graces screens.
On top of reuniting the stellar cast of Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Ian McKellen, X-Men Apocalypse will also be introducing Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and plenty of others to the franchise.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released in movie theaters on May 27, 2016
