    That’s cool, but couldn’t they wait for the latest movie to be released for this announcement? This is basically a spoiler saying that they’ll stop Apocalypse in it. It’s not a big surprise, but they could’ve shocked the audience and let Apocalypse win and move to the Age of Apocalypse in the next movie.
