Director Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” is ready for big screening and the ancient mutant Oscar Isaac, playing the role of Apocalypse himself, revealed the names of Four Horsemen at Hall H stage of Comic-Con International 2015 held at San Diego, California recently.

Apocalypse is an insane powerful mutant. He is always in search of errant mutants, whom he brainwashes and then physically transforms them into his principle warriors.

Isaac along with other crew members such as Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Lucas Till (Havok), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Lana Condor (Jubilee), James McAvoy (Professor X), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), and the screenwriter-cum-producer Simon Kinberg took the stage and announced the names of the Four Horsemen in the film.

According to Cinema Blend, these four mutants got their names from “the biblical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and their pet names are Famine, War, Pestilence and Death.”

In the comic book titled “Marvel Comics,” there are a number of characters performing this role. However, for the cinematic adaptation, the four mutants or rather Four Horsemen are going to be named Storm, Psylocke, Angel and Magneto. These characters are played by the actors Alexandra Shipp, Olivia Munn, Ben Hardy and Michael Fassbender, respectively.

“It takes place ten years after ‘Days Of Future Past’ in a completely different world. Mutants are for the most part embraced and accepted by society. That’s where we find our characters, and we find them in all different places,” Singer said.

According to Empire Online, the audience had the first look of Isaac’s Apocalypse, the most powerful mutant, greeted his fellow mutants saying, “You’re all my children, and you’re lost.”

“This world we have is not the world it should have been. God wakes up and says that it has to change,” Isaac of Apocalypse said..

“X-Men: Apocalypse” is slated to hit the screen on May 27, 2016.
