Watch: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ first trailer

    Yes, it seems like movie directors, and even actors are joining the bandwagons to become default marketing machines for some of the big-shot studios. And after a slew of teasers over the past few days from both 20th Century Fox and director Bryan Singer, the first trailer for the highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse has finally ‘mutated’ online.

    Here’s the trailer:

    From the trailer, most will probably be able to identify the returning cast, and perhaps a few younger versions of familiar characters. Of course, we believe most attention will have gone towards the titular villain –  Apocalypse played by Oscar Isaac, and quite amusingly, the new hairdo (or lack thereof) of James McAvoy’s Professor X.

    Here’s the official synopsis:

    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.

    Here are two recently revealed posters:
