After Captain America: Civil War hits theaters this weekend, fans will get another dose of Marvel superhero action later this month with 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters May 27. This new adventure closes out the X-Men prequel trilogy, which includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, with a new story set in the year 1983. To help celebrate this time period, the studio has launched a new online retro arcade, with three games that you can play, all of which have a mutant twist.
The studio has launched a new SpacePort Arcade website, which features three playable games with mutant themes, Mutant Conquest, Revenge of Hero X and Mutant All-Stars Track Field. Mutant Conquest is essentially a different version of Pac-Man, where the player has to avoid The Four Horsemen, War, Famine, Death and Pestilence, which you can kill with the help of a special red triangle. Revenge of Hero X puts you in the shoes of Hero X as you try to destroy the Destructibles and Indestructibles while saving the humans. The final game, Mutant All-Stars Track Field allows users to take part in a number of track and field events, either as a human or as three different mutants, who have obvious advantages over the humans.
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.
As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. Reprising their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past are Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert), Evan Peters (Quicksilver). New cast members include Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse, Olivia Munn as Psylocke, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
Bryan Singer is directing X-Men: Apocalypse from a script by Simon Kinberg, based on a story the director and screenwriter crafted together with X2: X-Men: United writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty. There have been rumors that Bryan Singer has signed on to direct another X-Men movie, with production reportedly starting next year in Montreal, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
