The end is nigh! And to celebrate, Yahoo! Movies has just debuted a gorgeous new one-sheet for X-Men: Apocalypse. This epic poster assembles the terrifying team known as The Four Horsemen. And they will be unleashed under the watchful eye of Oscar Isaac's Apocalypse this summer!
This hierarchy of mutants-gone-mad is led by returning cast member Michael Fassbender, who reprises his role as Magneto for the third time after starring in 2011's X-Men: First Class and 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. He is joined by franchise newcomers Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Tom Hardy as Angel. Once friend to Charles Xavier, the man formerly known as Erik Magnus Lehnsherr will soon make Professor X's life a living hell!
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.
Joining Apocalypse is a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who decides to help cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which these new villains will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven, with the help of Professor X, must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. Joining Raven and Charles are Quicksilver, Beast, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Jean Grey.
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.
Bryan Singer is directing from a script by Simon Kinberg, based on a story the director and screenwriter crafted together with Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the script for X2: X-Men: United. 20th Century Fox has slated X-Men: Apocalypse for release on May 27, 2016, putting it up against yet another sequel, Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass.
