This year is proving to be THE year for comic book movies. Starting back in February with Deadpool, then Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This weekend Captain America: Civil War hit theaters and later this month we get X-Men: Apocalypse. Later in the year we’re getting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, and another Star Wars. What an amazing time to be a geek!
To get fans pumped for the upcoming X-men Apocalypse, Fox is releasing short featurettes on some of the key characters in the film. We here at DHTG have two X-tremely important characters to show case. Magneto and Mystique.
As the end all be all baddy (sometimes goody) in the X-men universe, Magneto is maybe one of the most important villains in the X-Men universe and ‘Apocalypse’ is no exception. Michael Fassbender is brilliant in just about any role.
Jennifer Lawrence is amazing in everything she does and her portrayal of the shape-shifting Mystique is nothing short of phenomenal. Mystique is one of those characters that struggles with her morals, but embraces her abilities and that makes her such a complex character.
X-men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27. Are you going to see it in theaters? We’d love to know so go ahead and sound off in the comments below.
