Broadsheet Trailer Park: X Men: Apocalypse

at

X-Men Apocalypse

What you may need to know:

1. Set in 1983, ten years after the last one. McAvoy finally goes bald. Happens to the best of us.

2. Lots of new faces. Do we even care anymore?

3. Hugh Jackman’s hanging up his adamantium claws after 2017’s stand-alone Wolverine movie. His role here will probably amount to a brief cameo.

4. This is also the last time Jennifer Lawrence will have to paint herself blue. Well, for a role. What she does in her private life is none of our business.

5. Oscar Isaac’s big bad Apocalypse still looks pants.

6. Although the same was said about Evan Peters’ Quicksilver, and he was one of the best things in Days of Future Past (2014).

7. Broadsheet prognosis: X-Fatigue.

Release Date:
May 19, 2016.

    I’m not mad into the comic book genre but do enjoy the X-Men movies, especialy the last one the the First Class one.
    I will buck the trend by looking forward to this.

    The Wolverine ones were a load of my arse however

    1. Clampers Outside!

      I do enjoy them, but when they get into these scenes of a cacophony of CGI on the screen it gets annoying – like the last remake of Superman, the Tranformers movies from two onwards….. :(

      For a genre you’re not mad about you seem to have watched a lot of them. I don’t think you’re alone however (if my assumption is correct.)

    It’s all so muddled at this stage. I want Patrick Stewart and Syrian McKellan for christ’s sake, quit giving me these whippersnappers.

    It was all going so well til X3… to date we’ve STILL not seen Rogue get decent powers, I wanted a super-strength, flying Rogue, she was my fave character from the cartoon and she’s been completely ignored / made pathetic in the movies >_<

    And I'm so done with Wolverine.

          She was kick ass in the cartoons.

    Despite not being anywhere near as good as the cartoon, X-Men has easily been the best Marvel comic translated to feature film. They’re all very good apart from Last Stand so i’m looking forward to this. I also prefer the fact that Apocalypse is an actual actor in make up rather than a load of CGI nonsense that plagues most other stuff.
