X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Will Be Attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens

X-Men meets X-Wings.

17 Comments

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens set to become one of the biggest films of the year, it's little wonder that other movies are looking to attach trailers to it. It had already been announced that the first look at Captain America: Civil War would be released alongside The Force Awakens. Now it has been revealed that a trailer for another of 2016's big superhero films, X-Men: Apocalypse, will also debut with the new Star Wars movie.

No Caption Provided

In an interview with Collider, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg confirmed the news, stating: "Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser, but it's certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it."

Last week it was reported that Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman might be involved in the reshoots for the film that are taking place in January. Although Jackman is set to play the character one last time in 2017's Wolverine 3, he has not been officially confirmed for X-Men: Apocalypse.

X-Men: Apocalypse is directed by Bryan Singer, who made the first two movies in the series and returned for 2014's Days of Future Past. It is due for release on May 27, 2016, and stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18, 2015.

It doesn't matter if the actor does a good job playing Apocalypse, that design is still crap,just like QuickSliver. And I can't stand Olivia Munn.

Disney owns Star Wars, Disney owns Marvel.

What we're seeing is some of our favorite things growing up are now Disney shows and Disney markets Disney so here they are together now.

How much money did Fox plunk down to get that trailer tacked onto Star Wars showings? Gross, this X-Men looks like it's going to be worse than anything else that came out before it. Going by the silly look of A pack of lips and Psylocke's weird costume.

No amount of special effects is going to fix Apocalypse. Jesus, he kind of remind me of that power ranger movie villain Ivan Ooze HAHA!

I had to do an image search to see what Ivan Ooze looks like. LOL, the similarities really are striking. That's pretty damn hilarious.

Apocalypse is one of my favorite villains, so I really hope the make him look more impressive in the final product.

@jcharp: Surprise me as well when I saw the first pic what Apocalypse looks like for the upcoming new X-Men movie and seeing him looking like Ivan Ooze from the first Power Ranger was a shocking for me. The only difference is that Apocalypse is missing the twisted goatee.

Apocalypse looks way too Ivan Ooze. Buuut in another way, I like it, since I dig the first Power Rangers movie.

Speaking of Power Rangers, when are you guys at GS gonna start reporting on the new Power Rangers movie?
