First Look at the New Generation of Mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse


Apocalypse is coming for the X-Men. Or, more specifically, a giant 5,000 year-old Egyptian mutant who goes by that very unfriendly name and is the focus of the latest installment in Fox’s X-Men franchise. “He’s believed to be the first mutant, whatever that means,” says star Oscar Isaac. “He is the ­creative-slash-destructi ve force of this earth. When things start to go awry, or when things seem like they’re not moving towards evolution, he destroys those civilizations.” Think of him as a god who does gut renovations.

The story is too old to be commented.

The actor who plays Nightcrawler is probably the weirdest looking dude I've ever seen.

Indeed. But surely for Nightcrawler that's a good thing right? I'm surprised how good Psylockes costume looks! Pretty spot-on. Magneto and Apocolypse don't look too shabby either.

Psylocke looks AMAZING! One thing I can say about Singer's X-Men movies is he gets it. Superman...maybe not so much but he nails the X-Men.

Psylocke and Magneto both look Amazing. I'm not sure about Apocalypse atm.

Crazay2012d ago

He was almost Spider-Man. Just think about that.

The other characters look good but Apocalypse looks bad. He is supposed to be this bad ass villain that is stronger than anyone else so far and they make him look like that. If i didn't know what X men was and i saw that picture i would not think this was a big budget summer blockbuster.

I know that directors make changes to make things fit in more but from appearance alone he is not intimidating. His helmet kind of looks like the headdress those Egyptian Pharaohs wore so maybe that was what he was going for but it makes him look stupid. Hopefully they use CG and make him bigger like Thanos or do something with his voice like Ronin the Accuser to make him more intimidating.

This is how he looks like

He did have armor that kind of had a Egyptian helmet but that one still looks better than those pics.

Hopefully the actor and script make up for it cause its going to be a long time before they can try again.

they should make apocalypse more bigger like how marvel portrayed thanos. the version of apocalypse i am seeing is a lovechild between ivan ooze and ronan the accuser, the film is about apocalypse so make him an intimidating presence.

psylocke looks good
nightcrawler looks too weird they got the wrong actor
storm does not look too good either, she looks so young and her costume looks better with an older storm.
jubilee should trim her hair to look the part.
cyclops looks ok
sansa looks ok
