X-Men: Apocalypse Blu-Ray and DVD

Watch X-Men: Apocalypse Online


To have been created, apparently, in a matter of a day in the creative explosion of Stan Lee in the early 60, X-Men: Apocalypse enough of itself. What at first they were three heroes-a guy who shoots rays from his eyes, a man and a girl freezer with telequinéticos- powers and wheelchair mentor, Professor Xavier, genealogy has become an expansive able to capture the imagination since not only comics, but also movies and soon, television. The last link, 'X-Men: Apocalypse', closing the second mutant trilogy directed by Bryan Singer, arrives in theaters Friday.

There is a principal reason that Marvel Comics explains its popularity: now it is around the world, thanks in Michael Dougherty to the films of 'X-Men', but not long ago the superhero culture was almost the exclusive province of weirdos class, the ' geeks, those who were always chosen last when he played football form teams at recess. And these are fully identified with the young mutants Xavier School, with its difficult relationship with the best humanity installed in the system.

Lee created a powerful metaphor of discrimination and oppression of any alleged minority. According to the creator, "the first objective was to show that intolerance is something terrible." In the second part of the film series, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult directed by openly gay Singer, Bobby Drake's mother asked her son: "Have you tried not being a mutant?". Far from putting a throne to an unattainable figure, the X has given wings (in the case of Angel / Archangel literally) the oppressed and reviled.

This philosophical message of tolerance gave force to the first film trilogy, whose first episode shot, almost alone, the wave (or tsunami) Adult film and ambitious superhero is now almost raison d'etre of Hollywood. The 2000 film Singer recalled that superheroes could take seriously, very seriously, without neglecting the fun and lightness.

This balance has dominated the four titles in the series directed by him: 'X-Men' top 'X-Men 2', 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' (combination of distributions of the first trilogy and second, 'reboot' retroactive) and now this madness called 'X-Men: Apocalypse', in which the destruction of a memorial monument to holocaust can give way soon after a videoclipera sequence to the glory of pop culture 'you eighties'.

As' First generation '(located in 60) and' Days of Future Past '(in the 70s),' Revelation 'is a period film: its action takes place mainly in 1983, the year of the premiere of' The Return of jedi 'data' geek 'Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg not want to miss. At this time gloriously pop awake in Sabah Nur, Revelation, mutant ancestral betrayed and buried by his followers in the year 3600 B.C. Soon he warns that the Earth has gotten worse in his absence and decides to make a fresh start and new world order. Only Professor Xavier guys can save humanity.

Recently Kinberg said that the next installment would happen in 90, although it was unclear whether a future 'X-Men' or the film 'The New Mutants' (the 'spin-off' released as a comic series he referred in 1983) in preparation. Their rights and affiliate characters (case of 'Deadpool') are owned by Fox, the famous Lee mutants do not appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that does not mean they can not have their own shared universe.

Right now, for example, is studying how to reinstate Deadpool X-Men saga. There is also launching a film X Force, the mutant paramilitary group which includes both Deadpool as Colossus and Psylocke debutants real image in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'. In addition, the 'Hellfire' and 'Legion' series is written by Noah Hawley, author of TV review of 'Fargo' are prepared. Greedy but classy expansion.
