The second trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has arrived, and it looks good. Like many, I have been on the fence about this. Mostly because of Apocalypse looking too much like Ivan Ooze, but also because the story seemed weak. I was excited about Bryan Singer being at the helm, but after seeing the character designs and the direction the plot seemed to go in, I became more skeptical. Let's face it, X-Men: DoFP was a decent movie, but problematic. That said, this trailer is starting to make me believe again. It looks like Mystique is going to be leading the X-Men, which is just weird, and I'm still not buying Magneto as a Horseman, because I can't see him letting anyone have that much control over him, but Storm, Psylocke, and Archangel look believable. The visual effects look solid, the plot seems coherent, and now knowing more about Oscar Isaac as an actor, I'm beginning to hope. Below is the official synopsis:
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.
