We have been on a two year journey from X-Men: Days of Future Past hit theaters. We were left with the after credit scene of a young En Sabah Nur before his reign as the present threat, Apocalypse. We've had two trailers, one 30 second Super Bowl clip and a new teaser clip of the four horsemen that dropped today. I suppose it's the day of many things X-Men, because their official Instagram page has just given us these amazing images below.
ARCHANGEL: Savage, Dark, Fallen
STORM: Fury, Lost, Survivor
PSYLOCKE: Lethal, Fierce, Merciless
MAGNETO: Rage, Pain, Vengeance
All are amazing. Each crafted with the silhouette of a horse behind them. All done with the essences of each horseman. So far their advertising has been mainly on the four horsemen. I think it's a brilliant strategy.
This catastrophic event will lead somehow into the New Mutants assemblage. Josh Boone is there to direct the film. There's already talk of Maisie Williams and Anya Taylor-Joy being cast as Wolfsbane and Magik respectively. Alexandra Shipp is to return as Storm. Blink (Fan Bingbing), Warpath (Booboo Stewart), and Sunspot (Adan Canto) from Days of Future Past may have been introduced to later include their characters for the film. With Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, this sums up the majority of the members. Now to have Deadpool 2 introduce Cable, then have him lead the group as trainer would put all of the pieces in place. Either way, Fox's universe is expanding nicely.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit on May 27th. The New Mutants movie will follow sometime after.
