Today, we got a new trailer for the upcoming X-Men movie subtitled Apocalypse. We get more information on the plot of the movie as well as the introduction of more familiar characters along with a few that are not in the realm in the traditional characters. The plot of the movie follows the return of Apocalypse, the first mutant in the history of the planet. With him come his four horsemen who were given powers from him with the remaining mutants getting powers as derivatives of his powers. The story continues as a further divide occurs with Magneto being disillusioned with his powers and joining Apocalypse and Professor X and other X-Men joining the cause to protect humanity and fight against Apocalypse. With this film we see the introduction of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Nightcrawler who were previously missing from the new X-Men films as well as the addition of new mutants like Psylocke and Havok. Finally, the trailer closes with the familiar look of Professor X being bald and in a more serious tone so it seems we get the origin story of his more familiar role (or at least this iteration of his role) in the X-Men universe.
