In a world….where every superhero movie is a crossover…the franchise that started it all…would follow-up the movie where it crosses over itself…with another prequel crossover origin story. And the whole world might end! Look, I’ve enjoyed the majority of the X-Men franchise, and it did give us the whole spark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but of all the superhero movies out there, the X-Men movies have painted themselves into the biggest corner. Because they’re about already massive superhero teams, these movies now have to cram in as many characters as possible just to stay interesting. If Wolverine doesn’t turn up, all the fans get bored. And hey, you know who else was in other movies? Magneto and Professor X and Cyclops and Beast and Havoc and Quicksilver and Nightcrawler and Storm and Angel and Jean Grey and, of course, Mystique. And probably dozens more on top of that who aren’t in the trailer. Is this movie set in a universe where there aren’t any normal humans left, and everybody is just a mutant? Because it seems like it.
X-Men: Apocalypse comes out May 27, 2016.
