Ten years have passed since the events X-Men: Apocalypse when Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) joined forces to eliminate powerful mutant En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac) by unlocking the devastating telekinetic powers of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). The year is now 1992 and the X-Men are routinely dispatched on missions that are simply too dangerous for humans...
