‘X-Men: Apocalypse’: Four Epic Things to Note in the Trailer [WATCH VIDEO]

Now that the surprisingly epic trailer of “X-Men: Apocalypse” has finally been  released, there are no longer that much  haters around complaining how the movie is not going to stand up to expectations,  and how it will fail to make a mark. Leaving that aside, here are the four things  to note in the trailer:


  1. First off is the introduction of Apocalypse. Everyone frowned when the first picture of Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse was released. Many called him a villain from the Power Rangers, as the villain’s size didn’t really match the mutant’s supposed size. But, with the captivating voice and the deadly look seen in the trailer, fans are now convinced that they will be getting to see a deadly villain indeed.
  2. We get to see both looks of Professor X- with hair, and without.  James McAvoy shaved his head for the role, so that he could achieve his final look. So, when he does show up at the end of the trailer, he looks a lot like how  Patrick Stewart’s Professor X did in the previous “X-Men” movies.
  3. Apocalypse might not stay in the same shape and size in the movie that he has been already seen in.During the scene where McAvoy’s Charles Xavier tries to puch Apocalypse, Apocalypse is seen turning into a giant, and gains a massive form, while to squish Xavier on the floor.  Looking at this, there is a huge possibility that he will achieve the actual look later on in the movie, which has often been seen as his ultimate form.
  4. A newer, younger version of the “X-Men” team was finally seen. The entire team is seen in a plane, the X-Men’s popular jet,  probably just before going head on with Apocalypse and his four horsemen. This is the moment that every fan will look out for in the movie, as the “X-Men”  will stand united together against the god- like being and his controlled mutants.


Cinema Blend reported that the first poster of “X-Men: Apocalypse” looked Shakespearean as Apocalypse was seen staring down at a badly ruined skull, much like Shakespeare’s Hamlet does.

Comic Book Resources added that “Apocalypse” is the one example that truly shows director Bryan Singer’s willingness to adopt to new styles when it comes to his movies.

Describing Apocalypse as a “big, blue character with weird lips”, the media outlet noted that the character’s spandex had been ditched for heavy armor, which the character is flaunting.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” will release next year on May 27, 2016.
