The upcoming movie introduces Apocalypse, the first mutant, as played by Oscar Isaac.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped 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.
“It’d be very hard to do, because Halle, Famke, and Jimmy and others have done such wonderful jobs of bringing those characters to life,” said Kinberg. “But I also would have said before ‘First Class’ that there would be no actors who can stand alongside Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart.”
Some months after that, Alexandra Shipp, after starring as Aaliyah in Lifetime’s contentious biopic, and then starring in VH1’s “Drumline” sequel, was cast as Storm, in “Apocalypse.” So she’s the *new* Storm for all intents and purposes.
“Apocalypse” will focus mostly on the generation of X-Men introduced in “X-Men: First Class” – essentially, younger versions of Mystique (as played by Jennifer Lawrence), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Hence Shipp playing a younger version of Storm, to match the others.
