(Warning: the following contains mild potential SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse - albeit mostly the kind Fox wants you to see, seeing as it's an official TV spot. Proceed with caution and such nonetheless, though...)

Now, whether you were watching the Super Bowl last night in hopes of seeing Peyton Manning grab his 200th win, Cam Newton break into the big leagues, Beyoncé upstage Chris Martin or, y'know, the football – there's a pretty good chance you were also hoping to watch some gloriously expensive advertising space bring a glimpse of an eagerly anticipated movie or two.

One of the most intriguing of those said cinematic teases?

The 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Super Bowl Commercial Teased The Actual Apocalypse

In the traditionally awesome fashion we now expect from the X-franchise, no less. The most fascinating element of all of that from a geek-perspective, though?

It Sure Seems As Though We Might Actually See 'That' Iconic Comic Book Storyline

After all, in between the warheads, the general destruction...

...and what looks to be a pretty darned decimated cityscape...'s tough not to imagine that all of this...

...might just be the dawning of the 'Age of Apocalypse', a.k.a. a final act/sequel to the movie based on the classic '90s X-Men comic book event that saw Apocalypse take over the world.

Which, from the perspective of someone who grew up reading X-Men comic books in the '90s (ahem), would be AWESOME.

What do you think, though?
