TRAILER: ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ Promises A Big Finale To The ‘First Class’ Trilogy
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.

We actually predicted that Archangel (not Angel) and Psylocke would be apart of the villainous group The Four Horsemen, along with their expected romantic parring.
I’m digging the trailer, but feel it’s not going to deliver the quality and scale of action sequences we’ve come to expect from other Marvel films. The stellar opening sequence in Days of Future Past ended-up deflating the rest of the film, as it couldn’t match that sequence in the rest of the film, giving us a final climax that wasn’t quite as interesting or thrilling.
