In the this first look at the action-packed sequel, there's a new villain out to wipe out the world and start all over. Oscar Isaac portrays centuries-old mutant En Sabah Nur (a.k.a. Apocalypse), who awakes to find that mutants are not living up to his satisfaction.
He recruits Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) as part of his Four Horsemen crew that will help in his evil doing. Even Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) appears to have gone to the dark side by the end of the trailer. We also get a glimpse at his bald head. "I've never felt power like this before," Xavier exclaims.
"Everything they built will fall," En Sabah Nur proclaims. "And from the ashes of their bones, we'll build a better one."
It's up to Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) to head up an army of young mutants, Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), to stop the genocide. "The world needs the X-Men," Beast, as Hank McCoy, tells Mystique.
