Comic movie fans are more than ready for the Apocalypse! Next May, Oscar Isaac stalks onto the big screen as the powerful Alpha Mutant of that name in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, directed by Bryan Singer. Building on last year’s mega hit ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, also directed by Singer, the new movie follows the continuing exploits of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as they attempt to cultivate and protect the burgeoning mutant race, each in their own unique style.
Returning to join them are Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy/The Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven Darkholme/Mystique, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Lucas Till as Havok and Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert. They will be joined by new additions Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Ben Hardy as Archangel, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Lana Condor as Jubilee and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
Here is the first official plot synopsis for the film:
“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.”
This synopsis was released via an unusual source– a press release announcing a partnership between 20th Century Fox and Mars Chocolate North America, the manufacturer of M&M candies among many other favorites. Also part of this release was the following image of some X-M&Ms:
