Meet the Characters of X-Men Apocalypse this Weekend!
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
Marvel fans have something to look forward to this weekend as the X-Men squad returns with yet another action packed sequel. After the humongous success of X-Men: Days of the Future Past, director Bryan Singer unfolds a timeline 10 years after the events of the film, in X-Men Apocalypse. And, this time around the mutant superheroes are tasked with saving the earth from the rage of a powerful resurrected first mutant, En Sabah Nur or Apocalypse. Though we will miss seeing more of Wolverine, the character roster looks exciting enough to keep us hooked. Let’s take a look at all the characters that appear in this riveting sequel of the semi-reboot of the X-Men franchise!
Meet the X-Men Apocalypse Characters:
The Do-Good Squad
Professor Charles Xavier
Molding into the classic Professor Xavier look, we have James McAvoy reappearing in the sequel as the telekinetic mentor of the Xavier’s Academy.
The blue beauty with shapeshifting abilities, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) joins the good guys on the X-Men team.
Move over James Marden, we have a new Cyclops in town. Tye Sheriden plays Scott Summers/Cyclops, one of the first X-Men, possessing powers of emitting laser beams from his eyes.
The timeline is set in the 80s, which means we are treated to a glimpse of a young Jean Grey and Sophie Turner seems to be a perfect choice for it. Another major character having telepathic and telekinetic abilities!
Adding teleportation to the concoction, it’s Nightcrawler!
For the first time in the new X-Men, we catch a glimpse of Jubilee. Lana Condor shines in her perfect portrayal of the character, at least by the looks of it – complete with the yellow jacket and pink glasses.
Beast- the super human with super-strength but a refined mind!
Returning with his mad speed skills from Days of the Future Past is Quicksilver. We certainly need more slo-more antics in our lives this time too!
And, the bad guys!
With a deadly plan of destroying humanity, Apocalypse aka En Sabah Nur has recruited mutants as “The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse”.
Storm, with the ability to affect the weather, is one of the most powerful of the X-Men. But, what happens when she is on the other side of the fence? Newcomer Alexandra Shipp makes for a confident Storm.
Psycloke (Olivia Munn) takes on Jean’s telekinetic skills and adds some mean sword fighting abilities to the equation.
Warren Worthington III or Angel chips in as one of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse.
And finally, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto is Professor X’s former friend and arch nemesis.
Here’s a glimpse of the super-human face off you’re in for. Are you ready? X-Men Apocalypse is playing at the theatres this weekend.
