With all the recent criticism over Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the unrelenting hype over the impending release of Captain America: Civil War, it’s easy to forget there’s Another: Superhero movie hitting theaters next month — X-Men: Apocalypse.

After a couple of trailers for the latest X-Men saga that were largely met with disgruntled fans comparing the movie’s villain to Gumby, FOX cranked up the wattage for its latest trailer and put the mutant powers on full display.

It also lays out what looks like the basic plot of the movie. The super-est of all super-mutants Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) returns to torture humanity with his Four Horsemen. In the process, he kidnaps Professor X. It becomes up to a disillusioned Mystique to turn a bunch of green students into X-Men.

The trailer packs a lot of mutant on mutant action into a couple of minutes. There’s Angel vs. Nightcrawler.

    Oh, wow. Like a virgin hair is like 30 years old. *shakes cane*

    i liked the days of the future past, but i’m meh on this. mainly because the whole destruction of a major city has been done way too much lately. if you want to be different in a crowded superhero genre, destruction of MOAR cities is no the way to go. try to have, dunno, personality. that is to say, i’ll see it only if some dude would like to pay.

    So you get the delicious Oscar Isaac to star in a movie for you and you put him in a mecha-suit and make him unrecognizable. I can’t even with the logic.
