New X-Men: Apocalypse Clip Shows Magneto's Tragic Story
X-Men: Apocalypse opens next weekend, and is already in many cinemas worldwide. But that doesn’t mean that the onslaught of trailers, TV spots and viral teasers is quite over. Another new clip has been released, focusing on Michael Fassbender’s villainous Magneto. Check it out below:
X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer, and also stars James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne.
Last week, producer Simon Kinberg teased the post-credit sequence, and revealed it wouldn’t just set up the next film in the ongoing franchise. “It’s a nod toward potentially a lot of different movies,” he told Collider. “I mean certainly the Wolverine movie is related to what happens at the end of it, but there’s also another character that’s introduced, at least in name, in the tag and he could show up in any host of different X-Men films. Maybe a Gambit movie, maybe another X-Men movie.”
GameSpot’s review of X-Men: Apocalypse said that it “contains enough action, suspense, heartbreak, and excitement to keep you hooked. The movie juggles a lot of characters, and many don’t get the time to be fully explored or utilized, but the movie never fails to keep you entertained for its entire running time thanks to the action and heart of the protagonists. Apocalypse is a great character in the comics and as a movie villain, the stakes are raised to such a level, you can’t help but wonder how they’ll top this in the next one.”
