20th Century Fox continues its hype-machine for the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse” movie. The most recent publicity was a full-scale movie banner of the winged mutant Archangel aka Warren Worthington III (Ben Hardy) via the official Twitter site of the superhero movie.
The said photo was lifted courtesy from a Comic Con in San Paulo, Brazil with the mutant playboy looking away as his backside expansively spread the forged metallic wings for everyone to witness. Long-time fans of the X-comic books know that Archangel started out as alumnus of the original X-Men team. The mutant then had his own share of personal turmoil when his feathered extensions were destroyed in a battle.
The villain Apocalypse shrewdly granted him the majestically chilling metallic wings which made the mutant joined forces with him. The movie adaptation beforehand hinted that Worthington III will be a part of Apocalype’s Four Horsemen. Fox didn’t mention if Archangel will have a change of heart at the end.
The social media site, however, also indicated that the first X-Men:Apocalypse trailer has a PG rating but is 20 seconds shorter than the footage which made its debut at the Comic Con.
Last month, producer Simon Kinberg pointed out that the “X-Men:Apocalypse” trailer has secured a spot for their footage to be released during the screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
“I can in fact confirm that information. Our first trailer will be on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” It’s our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it,” Kinberg enthusiastically was quoted on Collider.
For fans tired of the waiting game for the trailer, an Italian website shared a narrative of the upcoming video. A fragment of the suddenly turned up description reads as:
“The trailer opens with Jean Grey waking from a nightmare. She tells Professor Xavier something along the lines of, “I have seen the end of the world. There was only death.”
