20th Century Fox just dropped the latest trailer for X-men: Apocalypse. You can check out the new action-packed video which contains quite a few revelations in the player below.
This new trailer contains some pretty huge revelations. The first of which is that Wolverine will be in the movie in some capacity. At the very least, it appears he will have some sort of cameo in the story. Also, Quicksilver reveals that Magneto is in fact his father. This is consistent with Quicksilver’s origin in the comics. However, this confirms they are taking the character in that direction for the upcoming sequel.
It does appear that Mystique is taking some sort of leadership role in the film. Ultimately, it appears she’s going to train and lead the group of X-Men who are depicted in the film. It’s a bit of a strange change and departure for Mystique. Obviously, the film is trying to capture on Jennifer Lawrence’s fandom, but hopefully it still still make sense.
X-Men: Apocalypse is due out in theaters on May 27. Here’s an official synopsis for the movie:
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.
