X-Men Apocalypse's new clip shows Cyclops using his abilities for the first time

Written by

One of the moments fans are most looking forward to seeing in X-Men: Apocalypse, is watching the young X-Men discovering their powers, and now we have a sneak peek of Scott Summers taking his first steps as Cyclops

The young Scott Summers is amongst the newest group of mutants being introduced into the early days of the X-Men franchise. In a string of teaser clips being released by 20th Century Fox, including Ben Hardy's transformation into Archangel as one of the Four Horsemen in X-Men Apocalypse. This clip focuses on Scott, and opens in a high school classroom, where the teacher just happens to be on the subject of mutants. After projecting a newspaper clipping up onto the wall with headline that reads: "Peace Turns to Chaos," little does she know that this is just where this scene is headed. The camera then starts to zoom in on Scott, who's having some problems with his eyes. Insert one pretty lady and one bully and you have got yourself one messed up student bathroom. It's not entirely clear what caused Scott's lasers to make their dazzling appearance, whether it's anger of being provoked by the school's jock, the subject of the teacher's class, or maybe it was just a delightful add on to puberty. Either way, Scott needs some fancy sunglasses asap.

The one character who we're all looking forward to Scott having scenes with is Jean Grey. The two together manage to establish the most iconic mutant love story together, and we are very excited to see how the beginning of their relationship will be played out.X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has spoken about Scott Summers and Jean Grey's romantic involvement, which has left us in no doubt that he understands its importance. The trailers for the movie show Scott and the other key students studying at Charles' mansion, including Nightcrawler teaming up with the rest of the established X-Men to defeat Apocalypse and his Four Horsemen, Archangel, Psylocke, Magneto and Storm. Will Scott have harnessed the power of his lasers in time for battle? For all the latest news and updates on X-Men: Apocalypse, click the green subscribe button below.
