They are equally objectified in these films in my opinion.

As I said, for Psylocke I'm waiting to see how they handle the character.

,,was this from a magazine or what"
See at youtube.

,,Anyway I think is En Sabah Nur before he become fully Apocalypse."
What would En Sabah Nur do near Carebro's door? And it's definitely woman.

I think that will be the very start of the film. I think the doors will open to show ancient egypt and I think that is Apoc because the head shape is similar to that of a pharaohs Nemes (Headdress) and he appears to be holding something similar to a crook or flail. Or even a Kopesh.

I wish I could put up a screen grab haha

I do hope that they really deliver with Psylocke character wise. I feel but could be wrong that she will be more than just the silent assassin.

Most MCU movies have had an obligatory topless abs scene for the main lead, usually all sweaty or in oil.

Can't wait for that scene in Ms Marvel

It's definitely Cerebro's door.
Exactly same door as in DOFP.

I cannot wait for the individual character posters for this film. I made this one or the Phoenix although I know, it could pass more for a DOFP one because of the same background and *****. (And because I used Famke instead of Sophie :P)

There's so many different scenarios that could happen to Psylocke

a. she's a silent assassin that will eventually comeback for more movies (ex. Rebecca Romijn's Mystique);
b. a fierce silent assassin that gets killed (ex. Lady Deathstrike)
c. a 1-time villain that wasn't that memorable (ex. Callisto)
d. a 1-time villain that wasn't liked by most (ex. Viper)
e. a 1-time villain that was teased to comeback but it never happened, then was also received not so well (ex. Emma Frost)
f. she's the first X-Men female villain, to actually switch sides the ended being part of the X-Men

I do think she will be a supporting character at best. The focus will be on Mystique, Apocalypse, Professor X and Magneto the most. The rest are supporting with Caliban/Stryker getting the least importance, for the teens, Jubilee obviously.

No. It's wrong to objectify women. But not men. That's okay.

It's fine for characters to be sexy. Men in superhero movies usually show skin in their downtime. Some women have sexiness built into their costumes in ways that male characters never do.

Wonder if that's supposed to be a set taking place in Egypt, going by that graffiti, and the writing underneath the title on the awning.

It does say Cairo, so it's probably Egypt. Glad that they aren't holding back on the destruction though. Good to see some bigger scale on these films.

Could this mean Storm is trapped somewhere under all that debris? The claustrophobia.

Hello everyone, I have read through about 75% of this thread. Before I start on this rant, I just want to say I am completely speaking from my heart on this. Im not here to troll or piss anyone off, but this is honestly how I feel and it is what it is.

Many of you are trusting in Singer, and he is a good director. But...much of his cinematography leaves a lot to be desired. Yes he can write a great story, but this is a super -hero movie. I want a good movie and awesome special effects.

Anyway this is all getting away from the point I was wanting to make.

I know many of you say that you like Apoc's look. That big villains don't translate well.....

Guys...I am a die hard Apocalypse fan. I have been waiting for his onscreen appearance for 20 years. He is the most quotable Marvel character (besides wolverine) in the original Fox cartoon.

What I saw from the comicon trailer broke my freaking heart. Its utterly disgraceful. And Im not trying to make people mad, I cannot stress this enough. The whole Ooze comparison that people are making...they have a similar pointy piece on there head pieces, but does he look like Ooze? No he doesn't. Is his costume corny like Ooze? Yes it is!!!

The voice is garbage...I'm sorry, but it is. The voice hisses to be deeper or he is not going to be taken seriously. Watch what happens when your voice is deeper.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AstDSzUoGfE

See you get taken more seriously. Do we really want Marty Mcfly to be harder than Apocalypse? The voice has to be altered and deeper with that same effect. You can't use some regular human voice. Even batman in the new batman vs superman is using that altered voice when he's in his iron suite. Its much better than Bale doing that garbage raspy voice thing like he had something stuck in his throat. That was just awful.

I was so happy to see that fan adjust Apoc's size and look. It was so much better than what they have. On a scale of 1-10, Id give that fan about a 6-7. Its a 10 compared to what they have though. I hope and pray that the fan uproar creates a change in this current look. Its just so bad right now.

Now I know that many of you are cool with the look. You guys are obviously not fans of Apocalypse. He is not one of your favorite characters. He's just another guy and to you and your not concerned cause you feel the movie will be good. I can understand that cause I could care less how psylocke looks or Storm, or jubilee.

Apocalypse is my character though. He has looked so imposing, so scary, so dominant, and this outfit he is in now by comparison is just corny. Sorry it is. If your a huge fan of Apoc, your going to be disappointed...very very disappointed and thats how its just going to be till a change is made.

Another poster brought up how a guy like Apoc needs to be CGI. I couldn't agree more. He should be 100 CGI like Ultron, like Hulk, like Thanos. If they made him a carbon copy of the cartoon, and gave him CGI using I-robot technology, with Oscar Isaac's voice with a deep voice effect, then we would have an awesome representation of Apoc.

I wasn't as worried about the size as I was the look. If he doesn't grow (which I 100% expect he will, many many times, into many different sizes) Then this movie will automatically be put on fantastic 4 II level with the portrayal of Galactus.

Again, Im not trying to make people mad, but those who have been with Apoc for 20 years like me. Who have the entire age of apocalypse saga in comic like me. Who watched accurate portrayals of other villains like me...then have to see this. Im just sorry. Its literally heartbreaking because Apocalypse can be the biggest baddest villain to ever grace the screen. His powers are ridiculously cool and frightening. His look is awesome, the best, but this...this is just terrible, disrespectful to the following that allowed this movie to become a thought, and fans have a right and good reason to be outraged at this load that has been presented to us as Apocalypse.

You guys that don't care, that think it fine, you have that right too, but us, the ones that are pissed and hate it, we also have that right. We are not trying to be mean or stupid, or negative, it just literally is heartbreaking for me if that is the presentation of Apoc. I will still watch it, and I think there is a good chance Ill like it, but Im still going to push and push and push for a better version of Apoc than what is currently being presented.
