2016 is shaping up to be a huge year for superhero movies, and while Marvel and Warner Bros. have the hype behind them, they can't compete with Fox in terms of volume. As things stand they'll be starting the year off with Deadpool in February and ending it with Gambit in October (although that one may end up being changed). The centrepiece of this, and coming after Batman V Superman and Civil War, is X-Men: Apocalypse, the final part of the First Class trilogy, as it were. Starring Oscar Isaac as the titular villain, it'll once more reunite James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nic Hoult, as well as adding plenty of fresh blood in what must be one of the most talented casts to grace a comic-book movie (and yet still less-so than Days of Future Past). Though still more than seven months away from release, it's around the time that a first-look trailer will be released (we've already had ones for Deadpool and BvS, while Civil War can't be far off), and though a teaser from San Diego Comic-Con did leak, not many have seen it and it will probably largely differ from the one that's released proper. Although director Bryan Singer has been busy promoting the film on social media, there's plenty that needs to be seen in action, especially if it's to generate the same excitement as its rivals.

NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
