New Images & Details About The Four Horsemen From ‘X-Men Apocalypse’

Sites are revealing details from their visits to the set of X-Men: Apocalypse and with that comes some new images as well. Screen Rant has a whole bunch of new details about the film’s Four Horesmen that will be recruited by the titular villain as well as a few new images of the characters

Check out what each of the actors had to say about being recruited by the titualar villain below. 


[Apocalypse] first meets her and she’s the bodyguard. She’s got this amazing skill and she has zero fear when she goes against him, so he needs her. What he sees in her is that she is someone who can protect and has no fear and is an amazing fighter and has amazing abilities. She’s doing things because she wants to do them. She’s like, “I want to join you. You haven’t fooled me into joining you. I get it, I see what you’re doing, and I want to be part of it.” In the end, they manipulate her, but it’s always her choice to join it.


[Apocalypse] arrives and it’s like, “Okay well something much more powerful than me has arrived,” in a way kind of like a god; he’s the original mutant. And I think… Magneto doesn’t really follow anyone, so it was kind of a hard thing like, well how does he just become one of Apocalypse’s Horsemen, and is he cool with that? But he appreciates that this guy is going to do what he couldn’t do. He’s got just so much more power than him, he’s such an immense force. In a way, it’s like that classic thing of joining any cult or radical group, he’s caught him at a very low, vulnerable point where he doesn’t really care anymore whether he dies or not or what happens, so he’s like, “Yeah I’ll join this guy. I’ll go on this path of judgment.”


It’s just pure love. I feel like when someone joins a cult, they end up becoming kindred spirits. They’re following the same thing. They all have the same goal which is Apocalypse… So what he is attracted to is their level and their magnitude of power. I think that his plan for her in the movie is to protect him. Protect him with fog. Protect him with lightening. Blow away a missile. Blow away a plane. There is so much that she can do, and what he’s looking for is protection because he just woke up after a couple thousands and thousand years. He’s weak and he’s alone, and he’s been betrayed, you know.

She admires him. She believes in him because for so long humans have treated her like crap. He is like, “Well in my day it was different”. She’s like, “Let’s get back to there, let’s get back to that.” She’s a weather goddess, you know. She’s a level, what is she, level 4, level 5 almost? She’s almost on Magneto’s level when it comes to her power.


And finally there’s Angel, who will become Archangel in the film. The site was unable to talk with Ben Hardy about the character but was able to receive some commments from Alexandra Shipp regarding his introduction. 

We just filmed a scene where we bring Angel, and Angel’s our final horsemen, and he’s getting his suit made, and he and I have this moment where we look at each other and I just smile at him. It’s not anything sexual and it’s not anything like, “Yeah babe”. It’s kind of just like a … You know, where you’re just like, “This is cool, this is awesome, we’re together on this. We are going to take on these people. I don’t know who these X-Men are, I don’t know who this Xavier dude is. We’re going to beat him up. We’re going to win. I shoot lightning.”

Apocalypse definitely picked some powerful mutants to comprise his Four Horsemen of. Are you happy with the four that he has chosen? What are you looking forward to most when it comes to these characters? Let us know your thoughts on the above and what you’re looking forward to as far as these characters are concerned in the comments section below.
