Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice might have had a lot of technical errors in it, but the audience loved it anyway. It broke previous box office ticket sales in spite of being panned by critics. Could the current X-Men Apocalypse movie have done the same thing with their two teaser trailer releases? Maybe there was another surprise for people who bought their movie tickets.
This blogger thought there was more to it than leaking the X-Men’s uniforms in the confrontation to defeat Apocalypse and Wolverine’s appearance in the movie. Obviously, the end of the last movie, X-Men Days of Future Past, left Wolverine’s status as a team member in limbo.

Professor X told him not to come back if he removed his injured rival.
So far, this blogger found that some of the movie titles followed a few of the 1980s cartoon. Just look at some of the hyperlinks in this article. It could be wrong though. That might be where the similarities end–maybe. The last two movies weren’t viewed by me, only the first two in the franchise. Some of the opening and ending music intermingled with the cartoon also.

Personally, this writer was going to play ‘ catch up’ because the third movie was missed by me. My brother was the fan of Marvel comics though. This blogger only watched the cartoons until they got complicated. Remember what happened to The Transformers: Generation One after Optimus Prime’s ‘death’?

One final clue could be found in the second trailer. Here’ s a tip, one might want to go back to the original 1980’s X-Men cartoons to figure it out.
