All the Mutants Show Off Their Powers in the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Super Bowl Trailer
Do you like mutants doing mutant-y things? Then you’ll love the X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl trailer, which features all kinds of new mutants (no pun intended) doing what they do best.
Because of all the new characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, we don’t get to spend a lot of time with any one character, but this new trailer is happy to bounce around giving us a taste of just about everyone. There’s Magneto ripping up bridges, Storm conjuring storms, Quicksilver running fast, Angel using his wings to attack, Nightcrawler BAMF-ing, Cyclops optic blasting, Apocalypse choking and Psylocke slashing a freaking car in half with her psychic knife. Minus the weird choral version of Coldplay’s “Beautiful World” it’s a fairly effective trailer.
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.
(Interesting to note that Mystique is now formally referred to as Raven?)
