As the follow up to Days of Future Past, the movie has a lot to live up to. Luckily, bringing one of X-Men’s biggest villains is a great way to keep the intensity up.
Additionally, it looks like we have another mutant joining the mix. Impressively, 20th Century Fox has kept this mutant’s inclusion a secret. Sadly, we will have to wait another month to find out how big of a role they will have.
If you made it this far without knowing why Apocalypse is such a big deal, let us help you. Apocalypse is supposedly the first and most powerful mutant. His powers have made him practically immortal and invincible. His fitting name, along with his four horseman, makes him a biblical force to be reckoned with.
One of the more interesting details about this movie is that the four horsemen include mutants who are typically known for being heroes. What caused their change of heart? Is this something of free will or were they forced into it in some way? Storm especially has always been associated with the good guys.
As this X-Men Apocalypse trailer states, the movie opens May 27, 2016. Do you have your ticket yet?
