Fox has released a new trailer for X-Men Apocalypse that features a lot of new footage, and some familiar dialog.
From opening the trailer with dialog reused from Singer’s original X-Men movies, to the return of dumb black leather costumes, this really feels like a massive step backwards for the franchise. Especially after how accurate to the comics Deadpool was not only in his costume, but also the two costumes of the X-Men who appeared in the movie.
It almost feels like Singer is stuck in the mindset he had when he made the first X-Men movie sixteen years ago that “yellow spandex” is something to laugh about. When both Fox’s own Deadpool and the Marvel movies have shown that you don’t have to put the characters in boring black leather to make them relatable to movie audiences.
