Thanks to the “X-Men” cartoon from the 1990s, Apocalypse was introduced to an entire generation of fans as an intimidating figure with a booming voice that stood in contrast to his purple armor and big blue lips. Surprisingly, a lot of the odd details of Apocalypse’s design have made their way into the live action version of the character, who Oscar Isaac plays in 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse.” But for many fans, the definitive version of En Sabah Nur exists in the cartoon — and now there’s a trailer for those very fans.
YouTube user Phillysteak took the audio track from the first “X-Men: Apocalypse” trailer, which debuted last week, and paired it with scenes from the ’90s “X-Men” cartoon. The lip-synching actually comes scarily close at times, and you might actually mistake Sophie Turner’s voice for that of the cartoon Jean Grey’s. Aside from one surprising scene, footage from the entire run of the ’90s cartoon has been repurposed for this trailer — yes, there’s even an appearance from animated mohawk Storm!
“X-Men: Apocalypse” opens on May 27, 2016.
