The New Team Takes Center Stage In New ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Poster

UntitledEarlier this week we got a new poster which featured the film’s villains, now 20th Century Fox has debuted another poster for X-Men: Apocalypse titled ‘Defend’. This new poster features some familiar faces and some new ones assembled together. This includes Tye Sheridan’s Scott Summers aka ‘Cyclops’, which many had been complaining hadn’t been featured in the marketing much. Check out the new poster below and sound off with your thoughts in the comments section afterwards.


Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.

Only the strong will survive when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.

I write stuff. Sometimes.

  • I am so sick of Bryan Singer’s boring, “Aren’t I so cool and above comic book foolishness,” fetish with the color black.

    I loved Kingsmen – The Secret Service. I do. But I really wish Matthew Vaughn and not Singer was the person who directed DOFP and Apocalypse.

    X-Men: First Class is still far and away the best X-Men film ever made.

      I think Bryan Singer will stop directing these films, as we saw in deadpool the characters were extremely true to their comic book counterpart. Fox is going to change their style.

    • Chris W

      Psylocke and Apocalypse are pretty on the nose.

      • The thing is though, Olivia Munn had to fight Singer to make her costume comic-book accurate.

        Guess what color he wanted to dress her in for the film?

        I’ll give you no hints, because the answer is BLACK.

    *closes eyes and imagines how amazing this poster would have looked if the characters were wearing costumes resembling their comic book counterparts*

    • You don’t have to imagine. Go watch the last act of X-Men: First Class.

      Matthew Vaughn showed the world that the classic Blue & Yellow could work.
