So much time and attention this year has been devoted to Batman v Superman and Captain America: Civil War that’s it’s easy to forget there’s yet another fully-loaded superhero extravaganza on the horizon: X-Men: Apocalypse. The film, which opens May 27, 2016, has director Bryan Singer tacking a crack at the franchise once again, following-up his entertaining but mostly forgettable X-Men: Days of Future Past. With a cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor, and Ben Hardy, it’ll be interesting to see how the film performs without frequent X-Men mainstay Hugh Jackman front-and-center. Jackman’s Wolverine hasn’t been advertised as appearing in Apocalypse, but there’s always a chance he’ll pop-up for a cameo as he did in X-Men: First Class.
The X-Men franchise has been a curious one. The films themselves aren’t what I’d consider very good or very bad — they just are. They’re entertaining pieces of pop that fade out of my memory the minute I step out of the theater. Will Apocalypse be any different? The addition of the internet’s boyfriend, Oscar Isaac, is a plus and it’ll be interesting to see how Isaac tackles the character, which is unlike anything he’s played before. But the presence of Isaac alone doesn’t guarantee a success — just look at the film Mojave. Or better yet, don’t look at it.

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.
