X-Men: Apocalypse (Super Bowl TV Commercial)

Okay, so you remember that the ending of X-Men: Days of Future Past pretty much nullified not only the entirety of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), but also X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013). Well, now we find out that the entire cinematic canon has been shit-canned – everything that’s not a part of this prequel series that started with First Class (2011) and continued with Days of Future Past.

Got that? Basically, you can just forget about the first six movies and just focus on Part III of the Jennifer Lawrence Trilogy.

Oscar Isaac is the bad guy and we get a lot more of Jennifer Lawrence not wearing blue makeup. Mainly because she’s Jennifer Lawrence and didn’t probably want to put all that shit on every day.

Anyhow, here’s the Super Bowl ad.

THE OFFICIAL STUDIO LINE:

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 worshipped 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.
