Hey! Want the (pretty obvious) plot synopsis for X-Men: Apocalypse? Well, you’re in luck! A, uh, press release from M&M’s has you covered. Only in this world, man. Only in this world.


A press release announcing a partnership between M&M’s and the “X-Men” film franchise also debuted a synopsis for “X-Men: Apocalypse”, which teases the ancient mutant’s motivations for world domination. The synopsis, discovered by ComingSoon.net, is as follows:

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.
