Professor X (portrayed by James McAvoy) is sporting a high-tech-but-kitsch helmet on this new picture of X-Men Apocalypse, the upcoming X-Men movie sequel directed by Bryan Singer:
“Since the dawn of civilization, En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) 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.”
For those who don’t know, Professor Charles Xavier’s telepathy enhancing machine is called Cerebro. The helmet is but a small part of the machine, it’s actually a huge ovoid, here’s an earlier set picture showing the whole thing:
A new official trailer of X-Men Apocalypse should be released online soon.
Release date: May 27, 2016.
