There’s a new fiery promo picture for X-Men Apocalypse, the upcoming action superhero movie directed by Bryan Singer set to pit Professor X (James McAvoy) and his team against Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his four horsemen:
Everything they’ve built will fall.
And from the ashes of their world, we’ll build a better one.
“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.”
