Hey! It’s that time of the week again! No, not Adventure Time. It is however, time to gloss over some low-resolution scans from the Entertainment Weekly magazine, that are all geared towards the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.

It’s all here: New mutants, Oscar Isaacs as the titular Apocalypse and Olivia Munn as the psychic ninja Psylocke, in a costume that was ripped straight from the comics. Oh myyyyyyy…

Visually, the film is looking superb. The costumes are knockouts, Isaacs looks like a genuine threat and director Bryan Singer has apparently evolved the mutant ability to sweep Hollywood tabloid stories under the rug.

X-Men: Apocalypse is out next year on May 27, and stars  James McAvoy, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner,Alexandra Shipp, Ben Hardy and Lana Condor.
