The final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has hit, and we finally get to know a lot more about what’s going on.

While the trailer features footage that we’ve seen before, especially when it comes to nukes being launched and other mass destruction, we get a new take on what’s going on with the plot, which will apparently feature a lot of bringing together our two teams.

Though we don’t get too much direct evidence, the film is obviously going to have a fair bit of grooming Horsemen, and establishing some of them, as well as Mystique’s new role as leader of the X-Men.

With Charles Xavier out of the way, someone has to bring the X-Men together, including some we haven’t seen much of, and get them to be a team that has some hope of defeating Apocalypse.

We also get to see the claws, so there’s that.

It still looks like a risky film, with too much to do, and not enough time to do most of it, but at least we know the direction headed our way.

Take a look, at let us know what you think.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE arrives in theaters May 27, 2016!


Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.
