Like Civil War, Xmen: Apocalypse is a culmination of the series so far. And, in order to get the full benefit of X-men apocalypse, you might have to see the rest of the series—excluding X-men: Origins Wolverine; Fox wants everyone to forget that happened.
First Class took place in the 60’s, Days of Future Past the 70’s, and you can imagine what decade sets the backdrop for Apocalypse. Xavier sports a suit jackets over a bright pastel sweater with sock-less loafers to complete the look, and Jean Greys shoulder pads seem like foreshadowing to her Dark Phoenix form. Night Crawler has Michael Jackson’s leather from Thriller and RayBan most definitely had a merchandise deal for the film. But I enjoyed the X-men: Vice visuals, and fingers crossed the next film takes place in the 90’s with the bright yellow and blue costumes stripped right from the cartoon.
