According to comic lore, Apocalypse was born 5000 years ago. The first human to possess the X-Gene, this would fuel his drive to seek out the strongest of his people crushing those who opposed him, the weak and the undeserving beneath his power. Believing himself ruler of all, he is all but unstoppable possessing numerous including; Molecular self-manipulation, Immortality, Superhuman physical attributes, Teleportation, Energy manipulation, Technopathy, Psionic powers, Healing factor and a Genius-level intellect.
Rumors were floated for ages that Tom Hardy was been eyed for the role of Apocalypse but those are now to put rest with this casting. The film will be according to Singer the most explosive X-Men movie yet taking in plenty of time to let viewers soak up all the action and adventure. We’ve also been promised to see the X-Men team we all know and love in their younger years including Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops.
