Yesterday, we showed you a brief promo video which offered new details about Ben Hardy's Angel, one of the Four Horsemen serving under the mighty En Sabah Nur in this month's X-Men: Apocalypse. Today we have three more of these "power piece" featurettes, which profile the remaining Horsemen Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp). With three weeks left until the May 27 release date, it's possible the studio could be teasing all of the mutant characters, good and evil, as we get closer to this superhero adventure hitting theaters.
Psylocke makes her X-Men franchise debut in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Olivia Munn explaining in this video from the 20th Century Fox YouTube page that her character is very lethal and "isn't afraid to get her hands dirty." We also see new footage of this powerful mutant in action, who will surely be a force to be reckoned with in X-Men: Apocalypse. Alexandra Shipp reveals that Storm has a "darkness" to her that Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) brings out, making her more powerful. We also see footage from a scene that was previously teased in early concept art, where Storm battles Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Cyclops (Tye Sheridan). The final installment sheds new light on Magneto, with Michael Fassbender teasing that his character teams up with Apocalypse to destroy the human race
X-Men: Apocalypse closes out the prequel trilogy that includes 2011's X-Men: First Class and 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. 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. Reprising their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past are Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), Evan Peters (Quicksilver). New cast members include Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. The movie will also mark the long awaited return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine!
Bryan Singer is directing X-Men: Apocalypse from a script by Simon Kinberg, based on a story the director and screenwriter crafted together with X2: X-Men: United writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty. There have been rumors that Bryan Singer has signed on to direct another X-Men movie, with production reportedly starting next year in Montreal, but that hasn't been confirmed yet, although the studio is also developing spinoffs such as The New Mutants, X-Force and Gambit. Take a look at these new videos showcasing three of the Four Horsemen from X-Men: Apocalypse, and stay tuned for more videos as we get closer to the May 27 release date.
