‘X-Men Apocalypse’ Superbowl Ad

Though in hindsight there are always little nitpicky flaws in Bryan Singer’s X-Men films, overall they work, and not once has a trailer for his work NOT totally drawn me in. This ad is no different. Most of all, I am pleased that the series began embracing its comic book origins for its character design. And Oscar Isaac is having a very good year as far as franchise immortality goes.
