The plot for “X-Men: Apocalypse” has finally been revealed.
The synopsis was revealed after 20th Century Fox announced its promotional partnership with Mars Chocolate North American for the upcoming movie, according to a report by Screen Rant.
“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,” reads the “X-Men: Apocalypse” plot.
” 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.”
For those unaware, the plot closes the X-Men trilogy arc that began with 2011’s “First Class,” at the same time also opening the franchise for a rebooted X-Universe.
Directed by Bryan Singer and written by Simon Kinberg, the movie will feature Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr/ Magneto, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier/ Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Ty Sheridan as Cyclops, Kodi-Smit McPhee as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as Jubilee, Lucas Till as Havoc, Ben Hardy as Angel and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse.
The movie is helmed by “Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” arrives in theaters on May 6, 2016.
