Image of the Day: Xavier's team assemble in new X-Men: Apocalypse poster

A brand-new poster for X-Men: Apocalypse has been released following the one featuring the movie’s villain En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), and his Four Horsemen. Taking the mutant spotlight this time are Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his new X-Men, with the tagline reading “Defend,” as opposed to the previous one, which was “Destroy.” 

Alongside a now-bald Professor X we find Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee); Jean Grey (Sophie Turner); Cyclops (Tye Sheridan); Quicksilver (Evan Peters), who’s finally decided to join the team after his fantastic turn in X-Men: Days of Future Past; Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence); and Beast (Nicholas Hoult). Conspicuously absent from the X-Men lineup is Jubilee, played by Lana Condor.

Have a look:


Bryan Singer's new superhero film will also introduce Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Angel (Ben Hardy) as three of the Four Horsemen, with the fourth being Magneto (Michael Fassbender).

X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in movie theaters on May 27.
