X-Men Apocalypse

The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Timeline Makes No Sense
The X-Men. It’s a simple premise. A genetic fluke gifts (or curses) a select few with special abilities. These people are known as “mutants.” Some of those mutants band together as the X-Men, sworn to protect the society that hates and fears them.
Bryan Singer Reveals ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Deleted Scene
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters tomorrow (technically tonight for you early birds), and you already have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to see in Bryan Singer’s latest X-sequel: bald James McAvoy, young versions of familiar mutants, an unrecognizable Oscar Isaac as the titular villain, etc. You’ve seen the trailers, you get it. But there’s at least one scene that we won’t get to see — at least not in the theater — and the way Bryan Singer describes it, it sounds like it could have been pretty fun.
'X-Men: The Animated Series' Gets Honest Trailer Treatment
Early reviews of X-Men: Apocalypse haven’t been particularly welcoming, even as the nine-film franchise seemingly skews closer and closer to the colorful weirdness of its comic heyday. Many a fan jump right back to the ‘90s X-Men: The Animated Series (and its inimitable theme) as a pinnacle of X-nostalgia, now appropriately given the “Honest Trailer” treatment just in time for the movie!
If You Love The X-Men, Read These Comics Next [Mutant Week]
The X-Men has been one of the most popular superhero franchises in comics for more than a generation, and the big screen adaptations helped kick off the current wave of superhero films, including X-Men: Apocalypse, which arrives in North American theaters this weekend. The world of the X-Men is packed with relatable themes, from the simple school setting to more complex ideas about alienation and persecution.

The Top Five Worst X-Men Movie Moments
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
Oscar Isaac, Bryan Singer Defend ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Villain
Our first real look at Oscar Isaac’s titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t particularly great, to say the least. Featuring a purple-toned En Sabah Nur, that early official photo inspired a flood of jokes on social media, with people comparing him to everything from a Power Rangers villain to Violet from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Apocalypse has thankfully looked a lot less colorful in the trailers released since then, and with the X-Men sequel hitting theaters next week, Isaac and director Bryan Singer have a few thoughts about their villain’s aesthetic.
Jennifer Lawrence Wants to Return For More ‘X-Men’
Jennifer Lawrence isn’t contracted for another X-Men sequel, but back in March she seemed pretty happy about the possibility of returning for more films. It’s been two months since then, and while Lawrence appears to be a little less eager about it now, she says that she’ll reprise the role of Raven…there’s just one thing that has to happen. Or maybe two.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Post Credits Scene Revealed
When Bryan Singer’s latest X-Men adventure was screened for critics a few weeks ago, there was no post-credits scene attached to the end of the movie. In fact, several of the critics at the New York screening booed loudly after they sat through the entire closing credits only to find... absolutely nothing at the end. But now that the movie is out in theaters internationally ahead of its U.S. debut next week, it’s clear that there is a post-credits scene that was held back from early screenings. Sneaky, sneaky. If you can’t wait and want to know what’s in the scene, here are the details.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Goes Retro in Delightful Recruitment Ad
Early reviews of X-Men: Apocalypse have unfortunately skewed a bit negative, but someone in Fox’s marketing department deserves a raise for some of these retro-style promos. Following that great In Search Of… spoof featuring George Takei, the studio has released this fake recruitment ad to entice gifted youngsters to enroll in Charles Xavier’s “totally rad” school for mutants.
'X-Men: Apocalypse' Embraces '80s Album Covers
X-Men: Apocalypse doesn't come out in the US until May 27, but we've known for a while that it takes place in the 1980s. In fact, that's what inspired all the recent '80s X-Men fan art. Now the marketing team for the movie has gone a similar direction themselves, posting five images to the official X-Men Movies Facebook Page that insert characters from the movie into some classic '80s record cover art.
