shocking revelation of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, as well as the unveiling of 20 new images, the marketing campaign is ramping up in full force.
Today, 20th Century Fox released a new clip from the upcoming blockbuster. This clip depicts Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) at an uproarious cage fight between Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Angel (Ben Hardy) – taking an interest in both of them.

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.
Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheriday, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, and Lucas Till, X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters nationwide May 27.
