20th Century Fox has released the first clip from their upcoming superhero released X-Men: Apocalypse. Set in the 80’s and continuing the storyline that first began in First Class and then Days of Future Past. The X-Men now face their biggest threat yet in Apocalypse.

The clip discusses the origins of the ancient mutant god. Apocalypse was the first mutant ever known to man called En Sabah Nur (translated to The First One). We got a glimpse of him building the Egyptian pyramids in the post credit scene of Days of Future Past. The scene then moves on to see the characters discuss the references pointing to this ancient being all throughout history, even in the bible.

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.
