20th Century Fox releases a series of X-Men: Apocalypse character posters and everyone is ready to go to war.
This is a really tough year to be a fangirl/fanboy. Sure, we’re seeing the rapid expansion of the Marvel and DC across both film and TV. But at the same time, the cinematic universes are rife with conflict. In Batman v. Superman, the “dawn” of the JusticeLeague follows a brutal battle between the Bat of Gotham and Son of Krypton. Next month, Captain America: Civil War will split the Avengers, and from the trailers and posters we’ve seen, it’s a bloody (and potentially deadly) battle.
As if that isn’t enough, the resurrection of En Sabah Nur triggers the end of days in X-Men: Apocalypse, dividing the mutants between those who want to destroy the world and those determined to defend it. *CRIES* Why can’t we all just get along?!
Earlier this month, 20th Century Fox released a series of character posters with Team X vs. Team Apocalypse and everyone is ready to go to war. Check them out below:
Take a look at another set of character posters with Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen and their representative plagues on humankind: Magneto (Michael Fassbender) is War, Storm (Alexandra Shipp) is Famine, Psylocke (Olivia Munn) is Pestilence, and Angel (Ben Hardy) is Death:
So, I feel pretty comfortable saying that I’m on Team X for this one (despite my love for Oscar Isaac). How about you? Share your thoughts in comments!
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
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.
