I hate to beat a dead horse, but after re-watching the CC trailer several times, the look of Apocalypse really ruined it. Tone, dialogue, glimpse at the new mutants, everything was there.
The actual size of Apocalypse shouldn't be a big deal, but in most depictions that I remember (early 90's X-Factor, animated series) he was a brute. I try to convince myself that this could be a Bane (TDKR) scenario, but in the stills and trailers, even though Hardy is shorter than Bale, he at least looked menacing. Apocalypse just looks like an old dude in blue makeup (which I guess shouldn't matter because he is suppose to be thousands of years old).
I'm just hoping this is another Evan Peters/Quicksilver situation. Love or hate his films, Singer is a competent filmmaker w/ solid storytelling ability. He hasn't let me down w/ his previous three X-Men movies, so I'll have to trust in his track record.
