The X-Men Animated Series Version of the X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Is the Movie We All Secretly Want

Ah, the 90s X-Men cartoon. Is there nothing you can’t improve? Sure, the actual trailer for X-Men Apocalypse was really good, but this mashup of its dialogue and soundtrack with footage from the classic animated series just has us wanting this instead.


This version, by youtuber Philysteak, works especially well for those who aren’t a big fan of Oscar Isaac’s appearance as Apocalypse in the film (although he did look much better than those Ivan Ooze-tastic promo pictures from earlier this year), as the animated series Apocalypse is much more in line with the villain’s classic appearance in the comics. But otherwise it’s just fun to see the self-seriousness of the live action adaptation’s acting and soundtrack played over the cartoony, slightly-oddball animation from the cartoon.


I really hope someone does their damned best to do something like this for the whole film when it’s out. I’d totally watch that.

I’m sure the movie will be fine, but man, I miss that deep bass voice from the cartoon. Always how I imagine Apoc’s voice.
