Whilst ostensibly, X-Men: Apocalypse deals with the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse in the 80s, and the X-Men’s attempts to defeat his extinction level plan, it is actually the conclusion of the time-hopping trilogy that began with the Matthew Vaughn-helmed X-Men: First Class. With the re-introduction of beloved X-Men characters like Scott Summers/Cyclops (Tye Sheriden), Phoenix/Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Nightcrawler/Kurt Wagner (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Storm/Ororo Munroe (Alexandra Shipp), the movie sets the stage for the X-Men’s new adventures.

It seems the only reason for this trailer to exist is the *SNIKT!* at the end. Yes, so we are teased that Wolverine will be in X-Men: Apocalypse.
So, in case you’ve overlooked this in the face of incessant buzz and excitement over the Batman v Superman & Captain America films, there is actually another tentpole superhero movie coming out in 2016 viz. X-Men Apocalypse.
X-Men in the 80s! Continuing the new timeline established by X-Men: Days of Future Past, our merry band of mutants face off with their biggest challenge yet – mutant prime, Apocalypse! Thankfully, in this first trailer, our villain (Oscar Issac, above) looks frighteningly faithful to the original and that should assuage the skeptics.
