X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Official Synopsis
Today, 20th Century Fox announced that they would be partnering up with M&M'S as a cross promotion for X-Men: Apocalypse. Along with that announcement came an image of Yellow and Green M&M’S as Magneto and Storm, as well as the first official synopsis that I've seen for the film. You can read that below:
“Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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.”
This pretty much seems like it's what fans have been expecting to see in the story, but now it's official. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Lucas Till as Havok, as well as Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Lana Condor as Jubilee, and of course Oscar Isaac is playing Apocalypse.
The Bryan Singer-directed film is set to be released on May 27th, 2016.
