The end is nigh, but Jennifer Lawrence doesn't look worried!
The X-Men: Apocalypse cast got their own Empire covers, and as you can see, Mystique and the rest of these mighty mutants are ready to fight.
Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse) James McAvoy (Professor X), Sophie Turner (Jean Gray), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), Olivia Munn (Psylocke) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver) are also featured across the 9 covers.
The latest trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse shows Mystique ready to go to war with Apocalypse and the Four Horseman. Professor X helps to prepare the newcomers to harness their powers for good, but as Mystique informs them, "You're not students anymore—you're X-Men."
In an interview with Nerdist.com, director Bryan Singer explained why Apocalypse is "just so different" from any of the X-Men films that have come before it.
"We've always tread this theme of mutants vs. humans," he said. "Apocalypse has two aspects that make him such a different character than I've traditionally explored in the universe. One is that he makes no distinctions between humans and mutants. He's interested in the Earth as a whole and the purity of civilization. And secondly, it deals with ancient mutantism, or the origins of the mutant state, or the origin of gods and religion, which the X-Men [film] universe has never really touched on."
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27.
