EW Magazine, X-Men: Apocalypse

Michael Muller

It's finally here!

The very first look at X-Men: Apocalypse has been released, and suffice to say, we're stoked.

Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke) are killing it with their sizzling smolders on the newest cover of Entertainment Weekly, proving that the latest generation of Marvel's mutants mean business.

Oscar Isaac, who plays Apocalypse, even dropped a few hints about fans can expect to see on the big screen during the highly anticipated flick.

"The last battle is going to be pretty insane," he shared. "I mean, it's like freaking Apocalypse fighting all of the X-Men. It's pretty cool."

Isaac continued to dish about his character, saying, "He's believed to be the first mutant, whatever that means. He is the creative-slash-destructive force of this earth. When things start to go awry, or when things seem like they're not moving towards evolution, he destroys those civilizations." Sounds…charming.

Meanwhile, Fassbender opened up to the publication about what's in store with his role, saying, "he's fallen in love and he's basically left his metal ways behind."

But, naturally, things take a turn pretty quickly and Magneto goes back to his old menacing ways.

"Apocalypse finds Erik [Lensherr] at a low ebb and recruits him." And as fans surely expect, all hell breaks loose.

Producer Simon Kinberg also spoke about the challenges the team faced when coming up with a plan for the next franchise in the mega-successful films.

"The problem with Days of Future Past is it's hard to sequelize. Whenever we talked about the sequel, the challenge was that it needed to feel not necessarily bigger visually, but that the stakes needed to feel bigger."

Sounds like we're going to be in for one wild, memorable ride.

X-Men: Apocalypse is slated to hit movie theaters on May 27, 2016.
