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

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.
