Words just aren’t enough to describe how we feel about Bryan Singer‘s upcoming superhero film, “X-Men: Apocalypse“.

We can see ourselves having one helluva great time next year as the upcoming “X-Men” movie features a slew of critically acclaimed actors and some newcomers. Prior to the release of the film, 20th Century Fox debuted some high-res versions of the movie stills first released by Entertainment Weekly.

X-Men Apocalypse EW Cover


Olivia Munn, Oscar Isaaac, and Michael Fassbender graced the cover of the Entertainment Weekly magazine in their respective mutant roles as Psylocke, Apocalypse, and Magneto.

Isaac described his character as “the ­creative-slash-destructive force of this earth”, adding:

When things start to go awry, or when things seem like they’re not moving towards evolution, he destroys those civilizations.

In the movie, his character will recruit wayward mutants, brainwash them, and physically enhance them to become the biblical “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”. They are nicknamed “Famine, War, Pestilence, and Death”.

According to EW, a young Storm will be recruited by Apocalypse from the streets of Cairo. The villain will also recruit Ben Hardy‘s Angel from Berlin and Psylocke, who is working “behind the iron curtain” for Caliban. The 4th horseman is Magneto, whom Fassbender claimed has “fallen in love and he’s basically left his metal ways behind”. He added, “Apocalypse finds Erik at a low ebb and recruits him“.

As the movie is set in the 1980s, the cast will be sporting some killer 80s wear and questionable hair choices.

The original cast members will be joined by newcomer Lana CondorSophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
