The entire X-Men cast descended on Comic-Con Saturday night, surprising those in attendance at the 20th Century Fox panel with a look inside the upcoming mutant adventures for the big screen. We’ve already seen some tastes of it elsewhere, with Hugh Jackman announcing his final run as Wolverine and Deadpool making a big splash, but folks in attendance also got their first look at X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit (and Fantastic Four, but that’s another post).

The festivities started earlier in the day with the reveal of a poster for the film and our first look at Apocalypse. It didn’t give too much, but it was a morsel of what was to come:

And then everyone gathered at Hall H for the big Q&A, kicked off by Jackman and Singer before, eventually, the entire cast from Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse were on stage together:


We got a better look of McAvoy’s Professor X chromedome, some Jennifer Lawrence face making, and her revelation about the character we would be seeing from her in this film as compared to Days of Future Past:

Singer then introduced a short trailer cut together from rough footage in the early parts of the movie, giving us our first real glimpse of Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse as reported by Slash Film:

“You are all my children. And you’re lost. Because you follow the wrong leader.” (In here, overlaid, there’s some additional dialogue that is hard to make out.) “Everything they’ve built will fall, and from the ashes of their world we’ll build a better one.”
