20th Century Fox released a new trailer during Super Bowl 50 for X-Men: Apocalypse, the upcoming ninth superhero movie in the ongoing X-Men film series and sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past. The trailer gives us a glimpse at the raw power of the evil mutant known as Apocalypse and shows just how hell-bent that he is on destroying everything that mankind has built. X-Men: Apocalypse is currently scheduled to release in theaters on May 27th, 2016.
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.
