New “X-Men: Apocalypse” trailer teases the Four Horsemen
As if you needed a reason to go see “X-Men: Apocalypse” after the stunningly good “X-Men: First Class” and the almost equally as impressive “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” here’s another trailer. This one gives some very brief insight into and highlights Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen.
Michael Fassbender returns as Magneto, throwing his lot in with Apocalypse. Younger versions of Storm and Angel fall in line.
Newcomer Psylocke rounds out the quartet, with mad props to fanboy favorite Olivia Munn for looking dead on for the part of he Asian assassin version of the character.
James McAvoy returns as Professor X, and promises he’ll get bald this time (no dirty joke intended). Jennifer Lawrence returns in what she threatens to be her last go as the shape shifting Mystique.
And yes, there will be another (hopefully) mind-blowing sequence with the speedster Quicksilver. (In the Fox X-Men universe, he didn’t get killed off like a punk bitch a la Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”)
Younger versions of Marvel Girl/ Jean Grey and Cyclops will join the X-Men, as well Jubilee.
No sign of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, but one never knows with these movies.
And did I mention Oscar Isaac, who killed it in “Ex Machina” and held his own in the mass character drama that was “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as rebel fighter pilot Poe Dameron, is Apocalypse?
I’m psyched. Almost don’t want to see any more so there are no spoilers.
