Well call me surprised, a new X-Men Apocalypse trailer just drooped this week and I think this one is getting me the most excited for this movie to come out! The first few trailers were great but they didn’t have quite the “wow factor” for me like this one did. There just so many cool moments in this one. First I loved how a lot more of the mutants’ powers were showcased you got to see more of that scene with Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and you find that she is fighting Beast (Nicholas Holt). The other scene that was crazy was Storm’s lightning facing off against Cyclops’ optic blast Dragonball Z style!!! Yeah, who didn’t love that?! It was also interesting this time around they just come out and say that Magneto is Quicksilver’s father. In Days of Future Past it was heavily alluded to, but seeing as how it looks like Magneto’s family is the driving force behind him turning to Apocalypse’s Four Horseman that’s probably pretty important.
The thing that kind of bothered me a little is how Mystique is the new leader of the X-Men and it sets it up like she is the one that teaches and unites them not Professor X. I understand it from a marketing and business stand point, Jennifer Lawrence is a superstar and why wouldn’t you put her at the forefront of your movie? I even get it from a self-contained story stand point starting with X-Men First Class where it’s established that she has the potential to be good or bad and it’s been a struggle between Xavier and Magneto to try and influence her. Still, growing up on the X-Men animated series and comics from the 90’s it is just weird to me, but that’s just my personal opinion. I have no doubt that Jennifer Lawrence will be great and I’m even a huge fan of her as an actress, but it kind of bums me out that Xavier seems like he’s gonna get knocked out of the movie for a big chunk based on this trailer.
Oh I can’t end this without talking about the big reveal at the end where you see Wolverine’s Adamantium claws come out! That definitely brought a huge smile to my face because I thought that Wolverine wasn’t going to be in this movie!!! Guys in the end I’m super pumped to see this movie I’ve loved every single one of Bryan Singer’s X-Men movies and this one looks to be the most epic one yet!!!
