X-Men: Apocalypse Cast Front and Center on New Empire Covers

| 18 Mar 2016 17:00

Empire has released images of nine planned X-Men: Apocalypse variant covers.

On the off chance the "Apocalypse" subtitle didn't clue you in, X-Men: Apocalypse (especially if recent trailers are any indicator) is probably going to include some heavy and bombastic content. Its director, Bryan Singer, has gone so far as to compare it to a blockbuster disaster flick. That in mind, it's not hard to see why many X-fans and moviegoers are getting amped up for it. The world falling to pieces on the big screen is always a draw. The world falling to pieces while mutant warriors blast each other to bits? That's straight-up visual candy.

Hoping to draw in excited fans, Empire has recently unveiled a series of variant covers focusing on different members of the film's cast. There are nine covers in total, each featuring a high quality image of a main character or character pair. Driving home the high stakes of the film, each cover also promises, in bright bold lettering, that "The End is Nigh." The Apocalypse issue of Empire will go on sale on March 31st.

While all of the covers are cool, the one that has me the most curious is the cover focused on Charles Xavier. While there have been a few glimpses of bald Xavier in trailers, Professor X has, in most of what we've seen, still been shown with a full head of James McAvoy hair. The Professor X Empire cover, comparatively, showcases the character in all of his classic cue ball glory. It leaves me wondering exactly what's going to happen to finally rob him of his locks and how much bald Professor X we'll actually see in the film. We'll find out on May 27th when the X-Men: Apocalypse finally hits the big screen.

And is anyone truly hyped for this movie? X-men is on it's 9th movie, if you count Deadpool. And I haven't seen people give less of a shit about a superhero movie trailer than this movie.

I very much am; I have been waiting for Apocalypse to feature in an X-Men film since they released the first one back in 2000. I don't think the number of films ought to diminish our excitement for them, and, indeed, going by recent form (Deadpool, First-Class, DOFP) they aren't diminishing in quality.

Someone want to do an edit of all of them together? It would be cool to see Apocalypse towering over everyone - as it is the effect is kind of lost with the separate covers.

On the movie itself - I'm actually quite a big X-Men fan, and have been waiting for this movie to watch the more recent ones (haven't watched one since the original trilogy). I'm looking forward to it.

Sucks to be the guy who plays Cyclops. I mean it's not like he's the leader of the X-men or anything.

Perhaps Male Pattern Baldness. I mean, it affects a very large proportion of men. Seems like the most obvious answer.

No, I see it as well. Jesus, how did that get past the editor?

EDIT: Also, why does Mystique need armor? Does that not make her powers completely fucking useless?

EDIT EDIT: What happened to the huge upgrade in costumes in First Class? Now we're back to boring dark generic armor clothes again?

To EDIT 1, I guess she can always just strip is she need to look like someone else.

While I'm not super hype per say but I will go definitely see it more than Superman Vs Batman (I have no intention on going to the cinema to watched it).

Maybe she's using her powers to look like she's wearing a uniform or they made a special fabric for her.

I can't put my finger on it, but Psylock doesn't look right in that picture. It's like something's wrong with her proportions, her head just seems way too large for her body. Is it just me?

Does Empire only exist for cover reveals?
