First trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse”

FOX just released the first trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse”. Watch the video below and let us know what you think about it! Jennifer looks more badass as Mystique than ever. The movie is due to hit the theaters on May 27, 2016.

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.

Jennifer Lawrence: Next ‘X-Men’ Movie “Is My Last One”

HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – The X-Men movies’ Mystique might need to change her appearance for good in future movies.

Jennifer Lawrence, who has played the character since 2011’s X-Men: First Class, said in an MTV interview that she’ll be done with the role following next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Asked by MTV about whether Apocalypse would mark a final appearance for Lawrence as the blue-skinned mutant, she said emphatically, “It is my last one, yes.” (Fox declined to comment on the subject when contacted by THR.)

This makes Lawrence the second X-Men cast member to suggest that Apocalypse would mark their final appearance in the last couple of weeks. Nicholas Hoult, who played the Beast in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, told E! Online that the 2016 installment of the series was the last movie he was signed up for, although he said he wouldn’t rule out returning in future.

It’s possible that X-Men: Apocalypse, to be directed by X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Bryan Singer, has been constructed to plan ahead for any potential cast turnover. Characters rejoining the superhero franchise in the movie include Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey (Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan and Sophie Turner, respectively).

Additionally, Lawrence potentially departing the franchise doesn’t mean that Mystique will have to be dropped from the movies altogether. The Hunger Games actress is, after all, the second Mystique to have appeared in the series, following Rebecca Romijn’s appearances in the original X-Men trilogy. Being a shape changer does make recasting easier to explain in-story, after all.

X-Men: Apocalypse will be released May 27.
