New details about X-Men: Apocalypse, which will begin 10 years after the events of the Days of the Future Past, have emerged. Sophie Turner, who will play a young Jean Grey, teased about her character's unspoken bond with Professor X.
The Game of Throne actress denied speculations that there is a sexual attraction between the two and teased about an unspoken bond. " (Charles) Xavier seems to have this thing — not a sexual thing — for these young, vulnerable girls who feel alienated and uncomfortable in their own skin," she told Digital Spy.
"They have this unspoken bond because he's telepathic as well, he's gone through the same things. He's very powerful and he sees that growing in her. He wants to protect her and help her control her powers, but also help her access the best of her ability. They have a really sweet relationship."
The 20th Century produced action thriller will feature a major villain — En Sabah Nur, the mutant god. As shown in the trailer, Jean will have a vision of his plan of death and destruction but Xavier will comfort her saying "it was just a dream". However, soon the nightmare comes true.
Directed by Bryan Singer, Apocalypse will have new actors portraying the old classic characters. Tye Sheridan will play Cyclops (earlier played by James Marsden). Patrick Stewart iconic character Professor Charles Xavier will be played by James McAvoy, while Halle Berry's Storm will be played by Alexandra Shipp.
The movie will begin 10 years after the incident where Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) saves the president from Magneto's wrath. However, soon the harmony between humans and mutants will be challenged by a bigger threat.
The synopsis of the upcoming movie reads:
Worshipped as a god since the dawn of time, the original mutant En Sabah Nur becomes immortal as he gathers the powers of other mutants and awakens after thousands of years in the 1980s. Unimpressed with the state of the world, he gathers new Four Horsemen (Angel, Magneto, Psylocke, and Storm) to cleanse the world of the weak and lead it. It's up to the surviving First Class of X-Men and new recruits, led by Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Professor X (James McAvoy), to save mankind from Apocalypse.
X-Men: Apocalypse will premiere on 27 May 2016.
