“X-Men: Apocalypse” just can’t come any sooner. With the release date fast approaching, the film has released new images and an extended TV spot showing Apocalypse gathering his four horsemen.
Comicbook has revealed a new extended television spot for the latest addition to the mutant film franchise. The clip shows short scenes of the film’s antagonist recruiting powerful mutants to form the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Apocalypse’s horsemen include Storm who was found in the streets of Cairo, Psylocke a mutant working in Soviet-held Europe, Angel who was seen in the ‘mutant fight club’ with Nightcrawler and Mystique, and finally, Magneto who was trying to live a peaceful life in Poland. He coerced them in joining his cause of creating the world for mutants.
Coming Soon reported that aside from the extended TV spot, 20th Century Fox has released new featurettes from “X-Men: Apocalypse.” It shows Magneto and Mystique and their powers.
After being awakened from his millennia-long slumber, Apocalypse sees the current human civilization as corrupt. Having accumulated the powers of countless mutants he gathers four mutants to be his followers and proceeds to wipe out humanity.
Professor Charles Xavier is joined by Mystique and a new team of young mutants as they try to prevent En Sabah Nur the most powerful mutant in history from destroying the world. They must face against him and his four horsemen, including their old comrade Magneto, in the hopes of saving humanity.
