New story details for X-Men: Apocalypse emerge!
The upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly is giving fans some amazing official photos from X-Men: Apocalypse and now it seems that it'll talk about the film's story and the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse as well.
Look inside the full article for this brand new information on the film!
Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse is shaping up to look pretty incredible. So far the only main complaint that fans seem to have is with the look at the main villain, Apocalypse. Other than that the costumes seemed to be ripped right from the comics which is amazing.
Director Bryan Singer and actor Michael Fassbender spoke to Entertainment Weekly explaining where the film's story will be starting off.
"In this week’s cover story, EW is on the set for your first look at next summer’s comic book blockbuster. As the new film opens, 10 years have passed and Raven (Lawrence), Charles (McAvoy), and Erik (Michael Fassbender) are still estranged, but not for much longer. The Big A awakens from his Egyptian tomb, sizes up the global ’80s vibe, and decides he’s not down with the Reagan era. “It’s a chaotic world of conflict and war and destruction,” Singer says. “It’s one giant civilization that now requires one giant culling. That’s why he needs special assistants in this process.” He finds teenage Storm living on the streets in Cairo, Angel (Ben Hardy) duking it out in a fight club in Berlin, and Psylocke (Olivia Munn) working behind the Iron Curtain for the mutant-broker Caliban. But his big get is Erik, who has been attempting to live a “normal” life in Poland. “He’s fallen in love and he’s basically left his metal ways behind,” Fassbender says. Pretty quickly, though, his world is shattered and “normal” is no longer an option. Says Fassbender, “Apocalypse finds Erik at a low ebb and recruits him.”"Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy then step in to explain where their characters, Mystique and Charles Xavier respectively, are when the story starts.
"Miles away, meanwhile, Raven is on her own, helping rescue mutants who are oppressed or enslaved, including the teleport Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Raven knows nothing about Apocalypse, Lawrence says, but “she hears about what happened to Erik and she wants to seek him out and help him.” This instigates a reunion between Raven and Charles, who has seen his school for extraordinary students flourish. “He’s not teaching anybody how to fight at the moment,” McAvoy says. “He’s teaching people how to control their abilities so that they can work at a bank. But of course this movie challenges all of that.” When Apocalypse’s plot to reboot the world is made clear, the stage is set for an epic mutant vs. mutant war."Fans absolutely loves X-Men: Days of Future Past and it was a fantastic movie but if everything goes as it should with this film, this one may be even better. The addition of new characters such as Psylocke, Jubilee, young Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops along with the return of the franchise's older characters from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past will make this one adventure that X-Men fans will not want to miss.
X-Men: Apocalypse will be in theaters on May 27, 2016.
