X-Men: Apocalypse Picture Gallery: Psylocke, Apocalypse, Magneto and More!

2015 has been pretty light on comic book movies with nothing from DC and only Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron from Marvel (no, I’m not forgetting Fantastic Four, but I’m pre-trying to).  2016 will see the beginning of the explosion in the genre that will soon have us with 8-9 films a year between just the two big publishers.  The DC Cinematic Universe will finally have more than one film, adding Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Suicide Squad.  Marvel begins MCU Phase 3 with Captain America: Civil War and Dr. Strange.  FOX is also going to bring us X-Men: Apocalypse (X-Men VIII if we’re counting the Wolverine films) as well as solo films for Gambit and Deadpool.

These images come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and 20th Century FOX, who had previously released them, but in much blurrier resolution.  It gives us a look at Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse (between this and Star Wars, he’s going to blow up) and Olivia Munn’s Psylocke.  Magneto looks like he’s getting another tweak to his costume that drifts more toward the full-blown comic version we saw at the end of X-Men: First Class.  We’re also moving far enough ahead in the timeline (though I’m not sure how far) that young Storm, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and others are re-entering the picture.  Apocalypse is probably the biggest Marvel villain we have yet to see onscreen in any form since the original X-Men film began the modern-day super hero film genre 15 years ago.  I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with him.  This will also be Jennifer Lawrence’s last film as Mystique and -if you believe his current mood- Hugh Jackman’s last team film as Wolverine.  X-Men: Days of Future Past put their characters on an intertwined story path so I’m very interested to see that play out.  I know footage from this was screened at Comic Con, so I think we can expect a teaser trailer before too much longer.

The Wolverine Blu Ray/DVD Date and Details


The Wolverine, to me, is just about dead even with Man of Steel for the best comic book movie of the year so far.  I really respected that they tried to do a much different kind of movie with Logan and I think the films flaws stem from slipping back into traditional super hero movie tropes.  The Wolverine is coming to DVD and Blu Ray on December 3rd with a LOAD of extras including an unrated, extended cut of the film (they pretty much pushed PG-13 as far as it will stretch with the violence, so I’m interested as to what got cut).  The official press release from FOX is below as well as a look at the cover art:

The year’s most action packed blockbuster comes home as THE WOLVERINE debuts its 4 disc Blu-ray Unleashed Extended Edition, 2 disc Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on December 3 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk The Line), THE WOLVERINE inspired by the celebrated Marvel comic book arc and featuring Hugh Jackman, in the title role takes the hero to a Japan he hasn’t seen since World War II – and into a shadowy realm of ninjas, mutants, and a brand new class of villains. To date the film has topped over $371 million in the worldwide box office becoming the highest grossing film in the franchise internationally.

Jackman returns as The Wolverine and faces his ultimate nemesis in an action-packed, life-or-death battle that takes him to modern-day Japan. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his limits, Wolverine confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality; an epic fight that will leave him forever changed.

THE WOLVERINE Blu-ray will allow fans to sync with the Second Screen app where viewers can immerse themselves in the world of The Wolverine, including a synced viewing experience, concept art, and many more cool and interactive bonus materials! The Unleashed Extended Edition will feature an extended cut of the film for the first time ever in the entire X-Men franchise, allowing viewers to go further into the creation of the darker Wolverine and the journey that he undertakes. THE WOLVERINE Unleashed Extended Edition Blu-ray includes 3D Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD™, complete with exclusives that make it the perfect gift for the holidays.
