While DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. dominated the superhero movie genre portion of the program on Saturday morning at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, 20th Century Fox took the cake with their Marvel mutant movies. After showing off trailers for ‘Maze Runner: Scorch Trials’, ‘Victor Frankenstein’, and ‘Fantastic Four’, the program switched over to the likes of Wolverine, Deadpool, and the rest of the X-Men. But even before Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Jennifer Lawrence, and company took the stage, director Bryan Singer revealed a little something from ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ on social media before he and his crew would make their appearance on the Hall H stage.
As the filmmaker tends to do, Singer set out to share some exclusive content from his beloved X-Men film franchise before anyone is able to leak it before he does. While he was a little bit late this time because one of these made the rounds almost immediately after the convention floor was open, the filmmaker shared the first official look at Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur AKA the almighty Apocalypse. Similar to how we usually see the character, this villain is looking pretty intense as he’s depicted among the rubble of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. You can check out the promotional poster in the post below:
As an added bonus while we wait for Fox to release their trailers from the panel online, we have another awesome picture, but this time it’s courtesy of moderator extraordinaire Chris Hardwick. Similar to Fox’s approach to SDCC back in 2013, they brought out a number of cast members from their upcoming slate of X-Men movies. Not only were stars Jackman, Reynolds, and Lawrence present for the panel, but ‘Deadpool’ stars T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ stars Evan Peters, Lucas Till, Lana Condor, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn, and Ben Hardy, and Gambit himself Channing Tatum joined Hardwick and the legendary Stan Lee for an epic selfie to end the presentation.
