The first batch of images for the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse have been released over at Entertainment Weekly, and the famous mutant team are looking decidedly 80s. Following on from the swinging 60s of First Class and the groovy 70s of Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer wraps up the X-Men prequel trilogy with Apocalypse, set in the 80s and looking markedly more “comic book-ey” with it. Aaah the 80s, when all subtlety went of out of the window.
Included in the released images is the first look at Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, which one observer has a pretty fantastic take on:
Pretty accurate! But alas Bryan Singer hasn’t failed yet in the directors chair with the X-Men franchise, so there’s plenty of reasons to have faith. In Singer we trust.
