Following this morning’s trailer debut for the film, director Bryan Singer has just unveiled the first official character poster for X-Men: Apocalypse. The poster features the titular villain front and center with the film’s tagline, which is quite fitting for said character. Sure, many have had some complaints about the character’s look but I personally think he looks great and with an actor like Oscar Isaac in the role, no worries on this one. Check out the poster below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

“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.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theaters May 27, 2016.
