Will Smith isn’t a part of the new movie and speculations making the rounds on the Internet highlight why this is the case.

X-Men Apocalypse

Release date: May 2016

X-men Apocalypse was in the news recently for offending certain religious sentiments through the trailer, but fans of the franchise won't care about that. This is the movie where we see the greatest X-Men villain in action. Add to that James McAvoy (who plays Professor X) sports the bald look and we are really excited to see the direction the movie takes.
