Fox released a featurette that explains Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen in the new film X:Men Apocalypse. No, these horsemen don’t include Ric Flair, Ole Anderson, Arn Anderson, and Tully Blanchard. This group Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), and Angel (Ben Hardy).
Most of what’s in the 1:47 featurette is somewhat explained in the trailer, but this gives a little more info along with interviews from the cast and Bryan Singer.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27th.
