See James McAvoy's Professor X don Cerebro in X-Men: Apocalypse tease

Although December might as well be rechristened Star Wars month at this point, there's still plenty to look forward to as we are inundated with trailers for next year's offerings. One such film is X-Men: Apocalypse, and we recently learned that it would be premiering its first big promo with The Force Awakens.

Bryan Singer - aka the gift that keeps on teasing - has been making sure to remind us all of that fact, as he shares another image of what we can expect when we lay eyes on the trailer next month. Check it out below...

Finishing up the first teaser. #xmen #xmenapocalypse

There's not much info to be derived from the ominous tease other than James McAvoy's black-eyed Professor X appears to be using an updated version of Cerebro. In the likelihood the full trailer doesn't give us the full context, we may have to wait a while to discover what's going on here. Cool pic though!

Directed by Singer and starring McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in UK cinemas on May 19 2016, before making its way to US theatres on May 27 2016.
