First Trailer for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Attached to ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

First Trailer Attached To SW Premiere

Collider is reporting that not only is the first trailer for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War attached to Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that we’ll also be getting our first look at the Fox’s mutant epic X-Men: Apocalypse the same weekend.

Considering both Star Wars and Marvel are Disney properties, that move makes perfect sense, but the news that the first Apocalypse teaser is going to be attached to Star Wars 7 when it opens in theaters December 18th, well that is quite a bombshell.

X-Men franchise producer, and co-writer, Simon Kinberg confirmed the report: “I can in fact confirm that information. Our first trailer will be on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s our first thing out there so it is somewhat of a teaser but it’s certainly longer than a minute and it has a ton of cool stuff in it.

Now, there’s no doubt that Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will have the greatest trailer line-up in history. Expect to hear Star Wars: Rogue One and more Batman v Superman join the party. What about Deadpool?

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-Men: Apocalypse, opening in theaters everywhere May 27, 2016. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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.
