The New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Poster Reveals "The X-Men"


By Matt O'Bryant

Earlier in the week 20th Century Fox unveiled a new poster for the highly anticipated film X-Men: Apocalypse, set to hit theaters this summer. The poster featured Apocalypse himself, and his four horsemen, Magneto, Storm, Angel, and Pyslocke. Now earlier this morning the studio has released another poster for the film, this one featuring Professor X, Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Quicksilver, and Mystique.

"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."

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27th.
