“X-Men: Apocalypse” has released a new video in its London red carpet event. A scene from the 15-minute clip showed how his mutant powers awakened for the first time and in the worst way possible.
According to Comic Book Resources, the scene occurs at the 11-minute mark of the video and shows Scott Summers noticing that there is something in his eyes. He stares at one his female classmates which unfortunately gets the attention of the girl’s boyfriend and their teacher.
Wanting to see what’s wrong with his eyes he goes to the bathroom and sees a faint red glow in his pupils. Unknown to Summers, the girl’s boyfriend is seeking a confrontation and followed him to the bathroom slamming at the cubicle where Summers in hiding.
Unable to control his eyes, Scott Summers unleashes a powerful optical beam sending the would-be bully flying and slamming into the wall. In the midst of the destruction is a shocked Summers sitting in the toilet. Then the screen faded to black.
The new “X-Men: Apocalypse” video shows a different Cyclops from the previous trailers where his incredible powers are always unleashed in spectacular fashion. This time, he is shown as nothing more than a normal teen and seems to be a pushover seeing that his classmate had no qualms about confronting him.
Cinema Blend reveals that this is the first time we see Cyclops before his powers are awakened. Although we already saw a teen Scott Summers his powers are already kept under control by his trademark red sunglasses.
It has been a long time since we saw Cyclops in action in any of the X-Men films. The question now is will Tye Sheridan’s portrayal in the film be enough to sate the fan’s hunger to see the iconic mutant in all his glory. By the looks of the latest ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ trailers, the answer is probably yes.
