I’m still not exactly sure where X-Men: Apocalypse fits into the X-Universe after the re-tooling that was done in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I enjoyed Bryan Singer‘s last X-Men film, but I do think that it might be time for him to hand it off to a fresh set of hands. Matthew Vaughn managed to make the single best X-Men film with First Class, yet Singer followed it with the somewhat predictable and same Days of Future Past.
Apocalypse looks to be widening the scope and promising the most action and destruction of any X-Men film yet, despite the general tone feeling rather drag and blah.
I hope the inclusion of Oscar Isaac means that the film might at the very least be a well-acted piece of summer cinema, but I’m slightly worried that the X-Men universe is sort of drifting off into a weird direction.
The trailer ends with a surprise that confuses me and again has me questioning where this one fits into the newly established universe.
I’m still excited for Apocalypse and am hoping that it’s the best X-Men film yet, but I’m approaching it with slight hesitation.
What about you?
