Meet the fantastic Nightcrawler in new ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ clip

Nightcrawler - X-Men: Apocalypse

It’s only a few weeks away, so we’re in the thick of the clip season now. Fox has sent us a new clip for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, arriving in Australian cinemas on 19 May 2016, which not only showcases the 1980s stylings of showing the effects and fighting skills of Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) as she rocks the nightlife, but a first real look at the bamfing of Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) as he goes up against another familiar X-Men hero.

Following the 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.
