Yes Batman v Superman is here next Friday, yes Captain America: Civil War comes out the first week of May, but do not for the slightest moment leave X-Men: Apocalypse behind. Bryan Singer’s fourth entry into the groundbreaking superhero franchise hits theaters Memorial Day weekend and man does it look like a way to spend the holiday. 20th Century Fox has released a brand new, and what could end up being the final trailer for the movie. Taking a place a number of years after Days of Future Past, we find Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters fully functional. But when the world’s first mutant emerges from the shadows, the X-Men must unite to stop Apocalypse and his Four Horseman from their extinction level plan.
All of Singer’s X-Men movies up to this point have arguably been the best in the franchise, with each one he does getting better, but Apocalypse feels like it’s going to be the X-Men movie we’ve always hoped for. Apocalypse is one of, if not the most love stories in the entire X-Men run. And with the rumors and speculation going around that Apocalypse will be Singer’s last time in the X-chair, it only seems fitting that this is the way to culminate everything he’s brought to the table. While the world has been wrapped up in everything Batman v Superman or Civil War, Apocalypse is going along at a steady pace, dropping things here and there just to remind fans that they are still in the game. And if we are to take this new trailer into consideration at all, it reassures us that Apocalypse is one of the two superhero movies of 2016 that’s guaranteed to not just be good, but great.
Watch the new trailer below and let us know what you think of it in the comment section below.
