‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Offers First Look at New Mega-Villain in Comic-Con 2015 Poster
Update: Fox has released an official image of the teaser poster, which we’ve included below.
20th Century Fox is holding their big Comic-Con 2015 panel tonight, where we’ll likely see new stuff from X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four. But if you can’t wait until then, you can get your first look at X-Men’s newest villain right now via an official poster that’s circulating around Comic-Con today.
Attendees have been posting photos of these new X-Men: Apocalypse posters, which are being handed out at Comic-Con and feature an artistic rendering of the villain from the upcoming film:
Oscar Isaac is playing the title baddie in Bryan Singer’s new X-Men sequel, and while we hope get a better peek at him in San Diego tonight, this first look will do just fine. The top of the poster touts En Sabah Nur, the ancient name for Apocalypse, along with hieroglyphics. I didn’t study those, so I have no clue if these mean anything in particular.
Singer has been hard at work in production on X-Men: Apocalypse, which centers on the First Class cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult. The film has also recruited Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Lana Condor as Jubilee. In addition, Rose Byrne will reprise her role as Moira MacTaggert from X-Men: First Class.
We’ll have more to report from X-Men: Apocalypse at Comic-Con tonight. The film hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
