X-Men cast explain Apocalypse's true power in behind-the-scene video

The upcoming X-Men movie is all about the baddie. It says it in the name - X-Men: Apocalypse. With Poe Dameron swapping his orange jumpsuit for blue skin and a seriously intimidating scowl, we've been discovering a little more about what Professor X and co are going to be up against day by day. 

But enough teasing. Director Bryan Singer and cast members James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have now opened up about who Apocalypse (aka En Sabah Nur) really is, and why they're in serious trouble. Check out the video below. 

The thing that's ringing alarm bells with me is the fact that En Sabah Nur can control all mutants. ALL MUTANTS. Just how are the X-Men suppose to fight that?

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, and Hugh Jackman, X-Men: Apocalypse will be released in UK cinemas on May 18, 2016 before making its way to US theatres on May 27, 2016.
