Most people forget that is was the X-Men movie that proved comic books could be adapted into successful films. Everyone remembers Spiderman and Batman Begins, but in the year 2000, it was 20th Century Fox who took a massive gamble on a comic book property. Well, here we are, 16 year later, and not only are they churning out X-Men movies like an assembly line, but they become bigger and better every single time. I would say Fox’s gamble paid off.
Damn, as an proud comic book nerd, 2016 is as good as it gets. I mean, think about it: Batman V Superman, the largest X:Men movie yet, Captain America: Civil F*cking War, and Suicide Squad. All in one year. What a time to be alive.
Oh, and, hey Olivia Munn. We love you. Even if you are trying to destroy the world and end the human race.
By the way, I bet you $100 Magneto dies in this one. And not only that, but he does heroically. Bank on it.
Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, the immortal Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
