CBMB: Bryan Singer Teases the Egyptian Origins of Apocalypse

By Muuka Muyumba

Originally known as En Sabah Nur, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) will be the most powerful mutant ever seen on the big screen in Singer’s X-Men universe. ┬áToday, director Bryan Singer teased the epic scale of Apocalypse’s world by showing a set of an ancient shrine, which may ultimately be the villain’s tomb from which he emerges to challenge the X-Men.

En Sabah Nur was born nearly five thousand years ago in a lone settlement on the very edge of the Amentet and the very edge of the Valley of the Kings, in ancient Egypt, as a member of a tribe in Akkaba. Sometime during the fifteenth century, Nur had already created his Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, Pestilence, Famine, War, and Death, and rode among them as well, leading an army of Riders of the Dark.

In X-Men: Apocalypse, the film appears be pitting Xavier’s young class from 1983 of mutants like Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jubilee (Lana Candor), along with the First Class of Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havoc (Lucas Till), and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), against Apocalypse’s resurfaced Four Horseman which look to feature Angel (Ben Hardy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Psylocke (Olivia Munn), and Storm (Alexandria Shipp). Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) must convince mutants that Apocalypse’s brand of mutant pride is one that will even Magneto couldn’t create. Apocalypse is a religious leader looking to shepherd mutants into a new age, but will his ultimate goal allow for any other free-thinking mutants (let alone humans) survive his reign.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
