Are major studios that aren't Marvel currently losing all their good marketing team leaders? Because after last week's odd, cartoonish, yet mega-dark and spoilery trailer for Batman V Superman, a new trailer has arrived to provide further evidence: the one for the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, sequel to 2014's Days of Future Past. Bryan Singer's sequel returns to follow James McAvoy's Charles Xavier leading his new school of young mutants, in the 80s, still trying to reconcile mutants and humans peacefully his old frenemies Erik 'Magneto' Lensherr (Magneto) and Raven 'Mystique' (Jennifer Lawrence) are not with him, in exile or working for the same goal, with slightly more violence. However, their world is turned upside down when an ancient mutant, named En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac), the basis for many myths, legends and religions, dating back to Egyptian times, awakes. Believed to be the first and most powerful mutant, he recruits Erik, and three other outcast mutants to be his four horsemen, and wage a war against humankind. Only Xavier and his team of young mutants stand in his way.
