Now we officially know what story X-Men: Apocalypse will tell

10.08.2015

I imagine you'd like a better understanding of what X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is about, wouldn't you?

Thought so.

Good thing 20th Century Fox is happy to oblige, unveiling an official synopsis for the next mutant picture in an odd announcement of some sort of partnership with M&M'S. (I'll get to that later.)

So what story is Bryan Singer set to tell next summer?

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.

Is that about what you expected? Good. Let's talk about those M&M'S.

A picture is worth a thousand words, or about as few as I could probably muster to try to make sense of this, so have a look and try to decipher for yourself what this all means. Warning: it might take you the rest of the day.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE mutates into a finished motion picture on May 27, 2016.

Does it seem odd to anyone that someone who went through the Holocaust would in turn decide to start their own, just seems totally out of character, even for Magneto.

for the love of god!!!

just make a trilogy from the Age of Apocalypse comic series or dont do it at all. x-men were my favorite comics growing up and i honestly havent enjoyed any of the films really. the last 2 were better i guess, but just dont like the characters and how they change things.

I really liked the last 2 x-men movies, but damn, Jennifer Lawrence is not a good Mystique. She really isn't. I don't even think she enjoys being the character, everything she does seems phoned in. She's just a boring character to me. Disappointed they're putting her in such a central role again.

ugh...

sure jennifer lawrence is a big star... but i hate how mystique is such an integral character now. i mean, in a reboot sure. but it doesn't make sense with what has happened with rebecca romjin stamos' portrayal

I agree, the characters are like night and day between the two sets of trilogies. When she was introduced in First Class, I figured the ongoing sequels would explain how she went from Prof. X's friend to devout follower of Magneto. I figured we would get a good sense of that with DOFP, but the ending kind of kiboshed any semblance of the original Mystique character. I honestly don't mind either portrayal, just that fact that both exist for the same character in what is supposed to be the

Really? As much as I love those M&M Characters, this is their promo poster? lol. I'm not even sure what to say about that. And I did read that synopsis awhile ago. Sadly I don't have much faith in this. I'm in the minority I'm sure, but I wasn't a huge fan of DOFP. X2 and First Class were the only good Xmen movies in my mind.

Is Hugh Jackman making a cameo in this or anything? And I really wish the official trailer would be released already.
