    Let's just say if they do the BoEM, I want Wanda.

    Pretty good trailer. Definitely has me even more pumped up for Apocalypse :).

    The X-Kids look up to Mystique? Really? There must not be that many good role models at the X-Mansion then o_O.

    That scene with Nightcrawler recognizing her is such a tease :p.

    Heh, Quicksilver just up and blurting out he's Magneto's son and Mystique's reaction was funny, and it will probably prove integral to pulling Erik out of Apocalypse's control after the loss of his family :cool:.

    I hope Psylocke and Archangel actually have lines and clear characterizations in this movie, but that little smirk during her fight with Beast was kind of neat :anime:.

    We have Mystique giving out that inspirational speech in her costume from the promo image, so it seems like the X-Men don their comic costumes for the final battle with Apocalypse :D.

    Perfect tease at the end for you know who ;).

    The Mystique stuff probably stems from her being the first mutant publicly outed back in France. Her saving the president probably helped make things a little better for mutantkind in this timeline.

    It is pretty funny that they put the Magneto reveal in the trailer. I just wonder if Magneto knows.

    That was a pretty cool reveal. Who'd think you could still tease him after 16 years.

    I really hope that *he* only gets a Quicksilver style cameo. Move over, it's finally time for Cyclops and Jean to shine.

    Really cool seeing Beast hold his own against Psylocke and Cyclops taking on Storm!

    Xavier still hasn't given up on Erik. Admirable.

    Agreed on the Mystique scenes with Quicksilver and Nightcrawler were funny and hopefully not the only bits of humor in the movie.

    edit: Singer comments on the trailer.

    It sounds like we might get some real detail and elaboration on Weapon X and how it really worked, compared to in Origins, which will pay into future movies. Maybe even Wolverine 3 ;)?

    I think Oscar Isaac's pretty much got a good enough voice for Apocalypse down, but I guess I'm willing to see what Singer has in mind for the final product :sweat:..

    So Xavier and Apocalypse's fight is the debut of the Astral Realm? Cool :cool:.

    I wonder if they're ever going to confirm if Mystique is Nightcrawler's mother. I get why Kurt was interacting with her that way from an in-universe standpoint, but seeing it in the trailer felt like a big tease to their comic book relationship which has still yet to be touched on. Though maybe with them addressing Quicksilver and Magneto's relationship, that's enough family twists for one movie :p?

    Did the idea of using Motion Capture to get a comic-accurate Apocalypse, in the same vein as Thanos, not strike him as doable? I mean, I guess if you want him to feel more "human" or be on the same level as the Horseman, you probably need a real actor, but I think you could still make it work with a CG Apocalypse :shrug:.

    Part of me doesn't really want Apocalypse in CG. Thanos is an alien, so that is enough to suspend disbelief on. Apocalypse, is just a mutant, and while I wouldve prefered another actor, it is fine until I see the peformance.

    Though with Apocalypse, he has this big, otherworldly, colossal look in the comics that you could only really properly convey with CG and motion-capture (at least I feel).

    I think with the recent trailers and scenes we've been given, he looks better and closer to comic Apocalypse, but it feels like he's still missing something o_O.
