See Psylocke jump. See Psylocke flip. See Psylocke split a car in two using her psionic blades! The Super Bowl TV spot for X-Men: Apocalypse has a lot of fearful looking toward the horizon, but nice to see someone is coming out ready for a fight.
Of course, this doesn’t spell triumph for the fledgling X-Men, as Psylocke (Olivia Munn) is one of Apocalypse’s (Oscar Isaac) four horsemen. Here’s the full synopsis:
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.
This is the first we’ve seen of Psylocke. We also get a closer look at Apocalypse, who alternates between flattening Professor X, whipping up crazy winds in Magneto’s direction, and throttling Mystique. Watch the spot:
X-Men: Apocalypse comes to theaters May 27.
