A new poster has arrived for Bryan Singer’s forthcoming X-Men Apocalypse showing off the man (God) himself and his nominal Four Horsemen.

Things are not looking good for our rag-tag band of mutant heroes following our visits to First Class and Days of Future Past. This time around we visit the 80s and get an introduction to some of our favourite characters, so expect teen Cylops giving teen Jean Grey the eye.

Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and the usual lot are joined by Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn, Sophie Turner and Kodi Smit-McPhee among others.

The 19th of May is when you’ll get to see the end of the beginning or the end. Something like that…

Here’s the new poster,


Synopsis yeah!

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.
