Watch Angel And Nightcrawler Battle In A Cage Match In This X-Men: Apocalypse Clip

Not to take anything away from this weekend’s superhero smackdown between #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan, yesterday Fox oh so generously posted a new X-Men: Apocalypse clip on Facebook featuring some mighty-impressive footage set at what looks to be a German mutant fight club—or really tough leather bar that hosts the occasional electrified cage match.

The one-minute clip reacquaints us with Jennifer Lawrence’s Raven/Mystique, who appears to be infiltrating said club in order to save Nightcrawler (The Road’s Kodi Smit-McPhee) from a nasty bout against Angel (EastEnders’ Ben Hardy). Watch her take out a grunt with just one elbow.


Of course, the main event here is watching Nightcrawler unsuccessfully try to teleport his way out of the high voltage cage as Angel flies around attempting to land a good hit.


While this tease only showcases a trio of mutants, X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Hugh Jackman (as evinced in the film’s final trailer), and Oscar Isaac as the titular big bad.

Check out the clip below.
