    X-Men: Apocaylpse





    OMG! They totally nailed Psylocke's classic look the way they nailed Deadpool. I was expecting Fox to wuss out and give her a generic bodysuit with a white X on the chest.

    But that Apocaylpse though...

    That's nothing like the Apocalypse from the comics. He looks like an ordinary dude, not the first mutant.

    I thought Apocalypse was going to be all motion capture. I am shocked they went with this kind of look. He doesn't look like Oscar Isaac either, more like Sebastian Roche in purple pancake make up. That one picture makes them look like cosplay (albeit very expensive cosplay), which is too bad because I never expected Psylocke to look so accurate to the comics. Storm looks good although she looks like she has the same skin tone as Psylocke.

    It is indeed an unexpected direction for them to take.... an X-Men movie where they will be fighting Ivan Ooze...

    Yup....

    I think they look great... other than Apocalypse's head.

    Someone posted this photoshopped version of the one picture, correcting the look of Apocalypse's face and bulking him up. I think it looks a lot better...

    Yeah Psylocke being pretty much exactly like the comics outfit is almost surprising considering the movies aren't known for their comic accurate outfits.

    Don't insult the great Ivan Ooze by comparing acrapalypse to him.

    Acrapalypse looks like the ******* child of beast and nightcrawler.

    It is surprising to me because Marvel in particular is trying to cover up all of it's heroines or take their curves away.

    But this IS Fox, not Disney...

    That is nice. Even just the change to the mouth is a huge help. Even if it had to be all added in post, it'd make him look a lot more like Apocalypse.

    I wonder if Munn had anything to do with,while I know her geek cred as always been shaky to questionable it would restore some for us if she actually pushed for a comic accurate outfit.

    I think really a large part of the problem is mostly size, Storm is tall as he is (not sure of footwear) and it makes what should be an imposing figure come off not as imposing.

    I love Magneto’s new costume. The word is the X-Men may end up having their own costumes this time. I like everything we’ve seen but Apocalypse, which is incredibly disappointing. I seriously think they should have done something with motion-capture for him. He looks very underwhelming. They have a very good actor portraying him, but his design is majorly lacking, IMO.

    Let's hope he will evolve into the bad ass that Apocalypse is before the film ends

    When did they try and take away Black Widow's curves? Poor Scarlett Johansson is asked on the regular if she can even wear underwear in her costume it's so tight. The Scarlet Witch and Gamora both had fairly low cut costumes as well. I don't really see where this opinion originates, how much more can they show off these women's bodies and still leave them with some sense of dignity?

    I'm talking about the new "female friendly" direction the Marvel comics and cartoons are taking, so I was surprised at Psylocke actually retaining her classic comic book look. I thought for sure they'd stick her in some generic black bodysuit or something. I'm glad she looks spot on like Psylocke instead of half-assing it like they did in X3.

    I wonder if the colours are off in that photo as well, he looks blue on the mag cover but he looks way too purple in that picture.

    Psylocke looks fantastic!!! She has been one of my favorite X-men and it's nice to see that they kept true to her 90's/most iconic costume. Apocalypse on the other hand is a huge letdown. Maybe he will morph/transform at a certain part of the film making him bigger and truer to his comic counterpart.
