2016 is guaranteed to be one helluva good year because tonnes of superhero movies such as “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“ and “Captain America: Civil War” will be released.
One of the highly anticipated superhero films is Bryan Singer‘s “X-Men: Apocalypse“. Featuring a slew of critically acclaimed actors and some newcomers, the first official trailer for the upcoming “X-Men” movie finally made its debut online.
Singer is directing “X-Men: Apocalypse” based on a screenplay written by Simon Kinberg, Mike Dougherty, and Dan Harris.
The plot centres on Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe. He was worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilisation due to his ability to collect the powers of many other mutants. Thus, he becomes 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, 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 with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will see Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult reprising their roles as Magneto, Professor X, Mystique, and Beast.
Additional cast includes Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as Jubilee, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Lucas Till as Havok.
The film will reportedly be undergoing reshoots early next year. Another rumour regarding the reshoots also surfaced online, suggesting that Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine is involved.
