X-Men: Apocalypse Photos Offer Better Look at Archangel & En Sabah Nur

X-Men: Apocalypse - Olivia Munn, Oscar Isaac, and Michael Fassbender

If you thought Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or Captain America: Civil War were attempting to squeeze in too many comic book characters into a two-hour live-action feature film, you have another thing coming with X-Men: Apocalypse.

Rounding out the period-set trilogy that began with 2011's X-Men: First Class, Apocalypse brings back all the core characters and many, many more, including younger versions of the characters from the first film in the series. Most of these characters fans have been able to see glimpses of via social media, set photos and early bits of marketing, but some we've only seen through production art.

New images from what looks to be an editing bay or post-production special VFX house reveal low-res teases of several X-Men: Apocalypse characters, including the new main X-Men team and the titular villain, while another behind-the-scenes photos gives us our best look at Archangel yet.

The New Angel

We met Warren Worthington III a.k.a. Angel in X-Men: The Last Stand where the character didn't really participate as a member of the team, and we me another character, entirely unrelated, by the name of Angel (Angel Salvador) who could also fly in the '60s set X-Men: First Class. In X-Men: Apocalypse, we finally get a version of the original Angel who will be front and center, and this one will become Archangel.
