This movie picks up ten years after X-Men: Days of the Future Past. Xavier has kept his promise to Wolverine and both Jean and Scott are safe and sound at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. Of course evil never sleeps and it isn’t long before the X-Men are forced to protect mankind once again.
Their newest foe is Apocalypse, a godlike mutant, who is considered the first of his kind. After years of hibernation, Apocalypse reawakens in the 1980s. He and his Four Horseman (Magneto,Storm, Psylocke, and Angel) make plans to wipeout mankind and create a new world where mutants reign supreme (sound familiar?).
The only ones who can stop them are the X-Men. The new team consists of Jean Grey, Scott Summers, Nightcrawler, and Jubilee. With the help of Mystique and Agent Moira MacTaggert, they might just stand a chance.X-Men, X2, and X-Men: The Last Stand has become irrelevant. Although if you need a Hugh Jackman fix, I definitely recommend re-watching them. If you're like me and have to read the comics before watching the movie, pick up Age of Apocalypse. The movie isn't a direct adaptation of the series, but it's still an interesting read.
X-Men:Apocalypse will be released on May 27th.
