In X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox is attempting to bring one of the most iconic Marvel comics villains of all time to life on the big screen for the first time, and with him, comes his Four Horsemen. While the lineup had been heavily theorized beforehand, it has since been revealed that the four villainous lackeys would be made up of Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Archangel (Ben Hardy), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who should cause some major problems for our lead group of heroes this time around.
With the film’s theatrical release just a little over a month away as well, a new featurette for the film has been released online, discussing the Four Horsemen and their roles in the film, the way Apocalypse manages to increase their individual powers and their mission to take down and wipe out the entire human race.
Take a look below:
I’ll be honest, while all of the Four Horsemen look good, I’m not a huge fan of the effects being added to Apocalypse’s voice here. It sounds like a computer glitch gone wrong, especially considering the villainous edge that Oscar Isaac incorporated into his voice without any of the added effects as well. That could just be me, but it threw me off at first.
In addition to the future, three new posters have been revealed as well, focusing on Storm, Psylocke, and Archangel:
These might just be my favorite posters released from the film so far. Yes. More like these please.
More than anyone else in the film, Magneto’s arc and story seems to be the most intriguing, and it’ll be interesting to see how the usual leader is convinced to be an underling for the First Mutant. Fassbender has been one of the consistently best things about this franchise ever since he was introduced though, and seeing how his character deals with not only his newfound powers, but also the opportunity presented to him here, should make for an interesting conflict between himself and the other returning characters this time around.
Plus, it’s Michael Fassbender. He never disappoints.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theatres on May 27th.
