New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Pictures Revealed
Plus Bryan Singer Addresses Costume Controversy
By Alex Burns
Happy Friday guys! Celebrate the beginning of your weekend with these awesome new snaps from the upcoming superhero movie 'X-Men: Apocalypse'! The follow-up to last years hit movie 'Days of Future Past' the movie promises to bring the new trilogy of X-Men films to a satisfying climax and features an all new enemy in the form of Oscar Isaac's titular villain 'Apocalypse'. There's also newly cast actors in familiar roles as we head to the 80's to see young versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Jubilee and more! Take a look through the newly released images for a closer look at the vast array of X-Men characters on show.
It's not just the pictures though, a lot of negative reaction made the rounds online and by office water coolers when we got out first look at the Apocalypse costume. Some pretty unforgiving comparisons to the Power Ranger villain Ivan Ooze and Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr Freeze were but a few of the jabs directed at the outfit. The reaction was overshadowing the film itself and now Director Bryan Singer himself has come out with a reply to those comments.
Well he certainly looks like he belongs in the 80's! I'm sure this getup will look a lot better in motion on the big screen, I get the feeling they'll use some movie magic trickery to have Apocalypse appear much larger than the rest of the characters. What do you make of the new images and Apocalypse look? Sound off in the comments! 'X-Men: Apocalypse' is set for release 2016."He'll be very similar to images in the comic. There's obviously something very futuristic and yet ancient to the design of both his costume and his physicality." Singer explained.
