I hope Age of Apocalypse will knock it out of the park.
Klone - 5/30/2014, 7:44 AM
So with no Celestial or even Kang... how the hell will he get the technology upgrade? I mean I guess seeing him without technology wouldn't be too bad... but it is apart of the character like Mr. Sinister being an insane geneticists: Apocalypse is the crazed first mutant ever amped up by alien technology to God-like power.
BatzFTWfan - 5/30/2014, 7:48 AM
@Klone: I think they gonna change his origins by having Apolacypse created by Mr. Sinister, and if there's no cross-over, hopefully 2018 movie marks the last film of X-men with Mr. Sinister as main villain if the rights goes back to Marvel Studios, but they may make Deadpool, X-Force, Gambit, Mystique movies.

I feel Age of Apocalypse might get 1 billion if DOFP doesn't.
UltimateNullifier - 5/30/2014, 7:49 AM
Maybe they could go with the Shi'ar for the tech and armor?
OstrichBane - 5/30/2014, 7:49 AM
Still wondering who the Four Horseman will be, Sinister obviously being one and maybe Wolverine or Gambit being another.
UltimateNullifier - 5/30/2014, 7:52 AM
If they want us to forget about X3 altogether anyway, I can see them using Archangel in this story. They want us to forget about Origins: Wolverine, and they reused Emma Frost and Quicksilver and are reusing Gambit, so I don't see why Warren Worthington III couldn't be rebooted for this movie. It is his most famous storyline after all.
BlackHulk - 5/30/2014, 7:53 AM
I hope Age of Apocalypse adds Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the cast with Storm, Jean, Beast and Cyclops while making Wolverine, Gambit, Mystique and Angel the four horsemen. For people who complain that the cast features too many people, we are talking about an Apocalypse movie. This is a movie to go all out when it comes to epic battles.
Gigacrusher45 - 5/30/2014, 7:54 AM
I don't think anyone is going to care is Apocalypse get's the technology upgrade. He's just a extremely powerful mutant anyway so why would they need to complicate things.
UltimateNullifier - 5/30/2014, 7:56 AM
An X-Men movie doesn't really need Scarlet Witch. Quicksilver was a member of X-Men and X-Factor, but Scarlet was only briefly with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. They're both really more Avengers than X-Men, but I think using Scarlet would just be overkill for the sake of it.
thewonderer - 5/30/2014, 7:57 AM
I'm hesitant on this subject matter, but I expect Apocalypse will be redesigned in some way. I hope he isn't, but it's very likely.
OstrichBane - 5/30/2014, 7:57 AM
And more Blink and Quicksilver, and maybe Warpath. And bring Scarlet Witch into this thing, that way we have brother, sister and daddy.
rabid - 5/30/2014, 7:58 AM
Loved the Apocalypse ending, but I admit I was very unhappy to see him as a skinny white kid. He should at least be played by someone Egyptian looking.
genesis609 - 5/30/2014, 7:58 AM
how bad i wanna see ARCHANGEL... and i bet you they wont do it... :(
genesis609 - 5/30/2014, 7:59 AM
@rabid... the actor was i think arabic actually....
thewonderer - 5/30/2014, 8:02 AM
@Rabid
Ancient pharaohs were very feminine looking. They were prepubescent boys after all.
RetroFit - 5/30/2014, 8:06 AM
I just hope they don't use the same actor as they did in the end credits. That was a bit anti-climactic. I also don't understand why he didn't have the facial markings. Apocky had those from birth and it was part of why he was rejected and why he extrapolated that into rejection by humanity, etc. Maybe they'll bring it in with the alien technology? Assuming they're going that route?

Either way, give me Archangel or give me death!

fortycals - 5/30/2014, 8:09 AM
Apoc was abandoned because of his skin tone and features, he shouldn't look like every other Egyptian. He is gray, as was shown on screen. They should have gave him his lips though.

They shouldn't have to get into details about where/who the tech came from, just call it alien. Besides wouldn't Fox have some claim to kang, being a relative of reed and all. So leave the celestial out of it, and just use Rama tut regeneration Chamber.
JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 8:09 AM
I would love for in xmen Apocalypse

For apocalypse to get a hold of a child Angel since in the timeline he's a kid
And for apocalypse to genetically engineer him to become a adult Archangel

It could work
nailbiter111 - 5/30/2014, 8:11 AM
Funny as always. good stuff
JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 8:13 AM
I wanna see some different 4 horsemen then the usually

Throw in Caliban that would be a cool mutant to see on screen, along with Mr sinister and Archangel
JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 8:14 AM
Give us a Cable tease for the post credit

The events of Xmen apocalypse will lead into a X-force movie
MrSuperheromoviefan - 5/30/2014, 8:15 AM
How about the four horseman aweken and from there it's a strugle to stop them from awekening apocalyps
that would be interesting
Gusto - 5/30/2014, 8:20 AM
My money's on the four horse faces...

GodzillaKart - 5/30/2014, 8:21 AM
The gotta have archangel....specially since real angel sucked, so no worries in [frick]ing him up.
GodzillaKart - 5/30/2014, 8:27 AM
@Gusto: I tried real hard to think of something funny that rhymed with "Apocalypse" to go with your picture. Then I farted and stroked out.
TheAbomination - 5/30/2014, 8:28 AM
After DOFP, I'm actually looking forward to this one.

ajmathew80 - 5/30/2014, 8:31 AM
can anyone more [frick]ing annoying that these two dip shits have done this? i'd really like to know!
BlackHulk - 5/30/2014, 8:32 AM
@ UltimateNullifier

While the movie may not necessarily need Scarlet Witch, they do need other X-Men. The only foreseeable way that an X-Men movie with just Jean, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Quicksilver and Magneto (Wolverine, Gambit, Mystique, Nightcrawler have not been confirmed as being X Men in the movie)could possibly defeat the four horsemen and Apocalypse is if the horsemen and Apocalypse are powered down significantly. And Apocalypse being powered down would likely generate more complaints than the addition of Scarlet Witch to the cast. After all, it was pointed out in DOFP that Scarlet did exist in the X-Men universe but was not included in the film because they did not want to shove her in just for the sake.
sinsear912 - 5/30/2014, 8:33 AM
You guys need to get the rights reverting back to marvel idea out of your head. It will be a cold day in hell before fox let's that happen
m0th3r - 5/30/2014, 8:33 AM
I think Apoc gets his alien tech from another entity, and if Fox plays it smart they tie that into Shi'ar Empire...Maybe we get clarification on who can use Skrulls.. :)

@dailyComicsFix Yep, and still not profitable...
m0th3r - 5/30/2014, 8:34 AM
@sinsear i actually think there is a hard date on all the movie rights...maybe LONG time from now..someone was tossing around 2020 or 2025...i wish we could get access to the docs so we would know more..would tell us on what they would be capable of planning in time given
mattattack - 5/30/2014, 8:35 AM
I love these videos. These two Australians are funny as shit!
JoJo1982 - 5/30/2014, 8:37 AM
If they say he gets his technology from the Shi'ar
That would be great, cause then that would lead into even bigger things in the x-men movie franchise

X-men Shiar Empire 2018
Starjammers 2019
UltimateNullifier - 5/30/2014, 8:40 AM
@BlackHulk - I never said they should lessen Apocalypse's power. All I said was they don't need Scarlet Witch. They have plenty of X-Men already.
KrazyForKomix - 5/30/2014, 8:40 AM
I hope they get inspiration from this version:

 photo 406px-AoA_apoc_zps4c3a43a4.jpg

after all, it did appear in a comic after all.

(uh, kidding)

UltimateNullifier - 5/30/2014, 8:41 AM
And so many of them have been underused, it would be nice to see the ones they already have get a chance to shine.

Maybe they could go with the Shi'ar for the tech and armor?


Totally agreed, not only does this still make sense alien tech wise but it also opens the door for the Phoenix saga to be re-explored "but in space!" :O
npamusic - 5/30/2014, 8:43 AM
@AJ you're a douche, more douchey-er than these two are at this present moment. These Aussies are really funny, you may not find their humor good, or even palatable, but at least it's not over-exaggerate-everything-guy.
