Only the strong will survive, is not simply tagline, but also a serious omen. X-Men: Apocalypse promises to be the darkest X-Men film yet and with the team going up against their most formidable opponent, many fans are worried about the fates of their favourite mutants.
Considering how many characters the X-Men films have killed throughout the series, its a valid fear that almost anyone is fair game. Weve seen Jean Grey, Professor X, and Cyclops all die at different points, and with Bryan Singer about to close out this chapter of the franchise, its clear that a few key departures are going to be necessary to help wipe the slate clean.
The new trailer certainly supports this fear, and suggests that not everyone will get a happy ending. Apocalypse looks to have immense power and its apparent that stopping him wont come without a cost. With the franchise now unbound by the shackles of a dense continuity going forward, it could seemingly be anyone that falls in this massive battle.
With much of the plot still left only to our speculation, lets take our bestguesses at which X-Men will be part of the next generation, and which wont make it to the end credits.
