Coming out of San Diego Comic-Con, 20th Century Fox has gone all out to promote their next Marvel mutant adventure ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ Though we caught glimpses of the expansive cast here and there, we got our first look at franchise newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Olivia Munn, and Oscar Isaac in a blockbuster issue of Entertainment Weekly. However, some fans haven’t quite taken to Isaac’s portrayal of the almighty Apocalypse so far as there have been countless comparisons to ‘Power Rangers’ villain Ivan Ooze. But now we have another look at the ancient yet futuristic look of his costume, as well as new shots of other classic X-Men staples appearing in Bryan Singer’s upcoming film.
A number of behind the scenes photos have recently surfaced offering our first look at a few characters appearing in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ For starters, we have two of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen, Psylocke and Angel, as they pose with their stunt doubles. Previously, we have gotten a glimpse of Munn’s attire that is incredibly faithful to the comics, but this is the first time that we’re seeing Ben Hardy’s Archangel suited up. This isn’t exactly the Warren Worthington III that we’re used to seeing (note the facial tattoos), but it could work. Regardless, I’m more interested in seeing his wings fully unsheathed. Until then, this will have to do:
Not only do we get to see the Horsemen and their interesting wardrobe, but we can see the new X-Men uniforms as well. In these pictures, we see the return of the black leather jumpsuits (though slightly altered). But more importantly, the new Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler, as well as Mystique and Beast, are wearing them:
And finally, we come to Apocalypse. When we first saw Isaac completely suited up as En Sabah Nur, he looked more pink/purple than his trademark blue and grey. However, this new picture has surfaced to give us a much better look at the titular villain to show us otherwise. It’s uncertain whether they went back in post to fix the colors after fans reacted earlier this summer, but he definitely looks a lot better and much more menacing here:
What do you think about these behind the scenes photos from ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’? Are you disappointed to see the black leather uniforms somewhat return? Do you like Angel’s facial tattoos? And what do you think about the latest look at Apocalypse? Sound off in the comments.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Hardy, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Lana Condor, Olivia Munn, and Oscar Isaac opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
