Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTaggert sat out the action in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ but she is back in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ as Charles Xavier’s scientist colleague/love interest. And while Moira isn’t a mutant, her scientific knowledge proves just as valuable as she has the inside scoop on En Sabah Nur, the ancient god-like force now known as Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac).
Also back in the mix is Havok/Alex Summers (Lucas Till) who, like Moira, was part of the core team in ‘X-Men: First Class’. Alex popped up briefly in ‘Days of Future Past’ but looks to have a larger role in this film.
In this full clip from ‘Apocalypse’, Moira tells Havok and Charles (James McAvoy) about the legend surrounding what is believed to be the first mutant:

This clip comes courtesy of the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Twitter page. As a bonus, we also have a behind-the-scenes look at the X-Mansion via Coldwell Banker, who are acting as the film’s real estate partner. (As is explained in the video, this X-Mansion was built entirely from the ground up, right down to the trees being planted on the grounds and the road leading up to it.) Though the mansion has factored heavily into prior movies, as McAvoy states, this one is “bigger and better” with several brand new rooms and locations.
Watch for yourself below:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
