The trailer doesn’t hesitate with the good stuff: That sure looks like Apocalypse entering Cerebro. After that we get images of… well, apocalypse, and then…
We meet Jean Grey for the first time, being reassured by…
’80s Hair Charles Xavier, who apparently isn’t psychic enough to detect people mocking his almost-mullet.
That rolls right into a visit to the CIA, where Moira MacTaggart is currently employed and hunting our villain, Apocalypse. The trailer recaps some of his backstory; that he’s the First Mutant, that he’s a cult leader worshiped as a god, and that he’s a bit of a monster.
Mystique has gone natural, these days.
Our first look at the new Nightcrawler, with the symbols on his skin kept in place.
Fans also get to see Jubilee for the first meaningful time in an X-Men movie; oddly, Wolverine isn’t in this trailer.
It’s not really delved into in any real detail, but this trailer makes it clear Magneto has not had a good time of it since the events of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Which makes the reveal that he’s one of Apocalypse’s four horsemen a bit less shocking.
Our first look at the new Storm, complete with ’80s mohawk! She also, uh, is working for Apocalypse in this trailer, so that’s not good.
For all the sweet moves Olivia Munn has been learning, this is pretty much the only glimpse of her we get in the trailer.
Similarly, Havok, played by Lucas Till, doesn’t get much screen time. He’s mostly Chuck’s valet.
Beast is keeping his blue furry side under relative control.
This is about the point where it’s revealed things kind of go to hell for the team. If you look closely, that’s Quicksilver in the center and several other X-Men in a jail cell, presumably one built by Apocalypse.
Meet the recast X-Men!
A nice touch is that Apocalypse’s abilities are all intact; he really can grow to giant size as one of his powers in the comics, and it looks good in the trailer.
Quicksilver clearly plays more of a role this time around.
The new and retooled Angel. Well, technically Archangel, although they’ve lost the Smurf skin tone and blue and pink unitard.
Another good shot of Storm.
Once again, Xavier’s School for the Gifted is trashed. Chuck must have contractors on speed dial.
The trailer obscures Apocalypse a lot, but we do get a few good looks at him, and this is one.
Unless we miss our guess, Apocalypse will be hijacking Cerebro and trying to mind-control all mutants to create a mutant army. By now you’d think they’d have password-protected Cerebro, or given it a failsafe to shut down when the words “Kill all humans” or something are uttered.
Apocalypse lives up to his name…
…And he’s not fun to mind-read, apparently.
Finally, we get a shot of Professor X with his classic bald pate. He looks good!
A suivre, donc
