Hidden away in a press release from 20th Century Fox and Mars Chocolates (the M&Ms people) is something nobody really expected: a synopsis of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie. It’s not a full synopsis with spoilers or anything, but if you’re trying to preserve yourself from finding out any details, consider yourself warned now.

From the press release:

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

So, nothing too groundbreaking. I mean, it’s Apocalypse. He’s always unhappy about something, isn’t he? But still, this has us plenty more excited for the upcoming movie, which is slated for release May 27th, 2016.
