No more false gods.
The next few months are going to be pretty busy for superheroes. Tomorrow marks the release of Daredevil season 2, and next week will see Batman and Superman face off on the big screen. In May, Captain America: Civil War takes the stage, followed by X-Men Apocalypse, which just got a new trailer.
In Apocalypse, the titular villain (played by Oscar Isaac) is the first Mutant in history, morphed into a god and looking to pare the world down to only the best and powerful. To do so, he also has Four Horseman to help him out with that–Psylocke, Archangel, the teenaged Storm, and Magneto.
While the X-Men get their due here too (oh hey, there’s Nightcrawler!), the trailer mainly shows off the skills of the Horsemen and their leader, from Storm’s powerful lightning to Psylocke’s psychic sword (yes, that’s a thing, don’t ask). Like Mystique says, the young versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Quicksilver, and Jubilee aren’t students anymore. This is war.
X-Men Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
