X-Men: Apocalypse is considered the final film in a trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class, followed by it’s sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer’s third installment will be released in the United States on May 27, 2016.

“Since the dawn of civilisation, 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.”

The film marks the 9th X-Men Universe film from Fox, and takes place in 1983, 10 years after its predecessor, Days of Future Past.
