Story by Jack Foley

THE full synopsis for next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse has now been revealed.

The plot details reveal the extent of the role to be played by Oscar Isaac, as well as hinting at how Professor X and Magneto continue to oppose each other’s ideologies.

The synopsis reads: “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 is being directed by Bryan Singer, who returns to the franchise he first helped to create, and who has already made a successful return with previous entry, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Apocalypse will be released May 27, 2016.
