Simon Kinberg answers fan questions about X-Men: Apocalypse
X-Men: Apocalypse producer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg has taken questions from fans about the May 27, 2016 release and you can watch him answer in the video below. Some of the highlight include that he says this is the biggest X-Men film they’ve done, both in terms of that there’s an extinction-level event for the world and that it’s the biggest emotionally. He also says that Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) is more powerful that any of the characters we’ve seen so far in the franchise.
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. 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.”
X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy as Charles Xaver, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Lucas Till as Havok and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Lana Condor as Jubilee.
