This year is a rather busy one for comic book fans, with Warner Bros Pictures, Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox all releasing two superhero films this year. On the DC side of things, WB releases its tentpole film which is intended to jumpstart the rest of the DC Extended Universe in a week, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, following up with Suicide Squad in August. On the Marvel side of things, Marvel Studios is releasing mega-crossover film Captain America: Civil War in about a month and a half, and following up with Doctor Strange, an origin story starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the man who will become Sorcerer Supreme, who defends the world from Cthulhu level beings.
With all the focus on Batman v Superman and Civil War – in large part due to the clash between such iconic superheroes in both films – it’s easy to forget that X-Men: Apocalypse will be releasing in cinemas in just a few months. Thankfully they just dropped a trailer and it’s certainly intriguing.
