A new plot synopsis for next years “X-Men: Apocalypse” was released today. The plot summary was hidden away in a cross promotion press release for 20th Century Fox and Mars Chocolate. You can check it out below:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
There is nothing ultra spoilery in this description although it does give a sense of who will be facing off against who. It’s interesting that Jennifer Lawrence’s Raven (Mystique) is teaming up with Charles Xavier and the young versions of the X-men.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” opens on May 27th 2016.
