[UPDATE] EW has released a gallery of images

While there's been some pictures released here and there for the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, the one thing fans haven't seen is what Apocalypse will look like in the film. The highly anticipated villain has a distinct look, and fans are super-curious as to what he'll look like.

On top of that, there's also Psylocke, and while we did just see her hair color, fans want to know about her costume as well. A new issue of EW reveals it all. Here's the cover featuring Psylocke, Apocalypse, and Magneto. Cover from EW.

Also, there's an interior page featuring Apocalypse, Psylocke, and Storm too.

Storm has a mohawk? That's pretty sweet. This shot really gives a full costume look at Apocalypse as well.

Here's more from EW and 20th Century Fox.

Love all the costumes! I actually really like how much they stayed true to Psylockes comic costume. Storm is by far my favorite though lol.

Apocalypse does look unimpressive, but I'll hold off on judging since Quicksilver received the very same reaction and he was one of the movie's highlights. Plus, I like the actor playing Apoc and DoFP restored my faith in Singer, so I'm looking forward to this one.

Psylocke looks kinda hot but feels a bit cosplayish. Apocalypse looks like a tool....

And Mr freeze from batman and robin

That.... Looks.... Horrible. Apocalypse is such an iconic looking character, how can they mess that up? Just terrible. I loved Days of Future Past,and I'm still amped for this film, but wow, that look for Apoc is awful. Really couldn't be worse. Hopefully they can do something in post production but that is terrible. So disappointing. Wow.

Magneto looks great as always and Olivia Munn is freaking killing as Psylocke. But woah, Apocalypse looks horrendous, I was expecting much better....

All they need to do with Apocalypse is make him have the long blue lip to ear line and have a bald head. Jesus...

Psylocke looks pretty good - nailed the look there so why not with Apocalypse?

I'm liking both Psylocke and Storm. Nice to see they're going with the mohawk.

Just from still pictures it's hard to tell how the costumes will translate to film so I guess I will reserve my judgement until later, but I am already judging this film because I really didn't like DOFP except for the ending and the quick silver scene

Really need to darken that purple on Apocalypse. It's way too light. Laughable. Looks like he fell asleep in a field of lilacs

Man, Marvel should be paying Jim Lee for those timeless costume designs, they're STILL the most popular X-Men costumes.

Well....we bitch when the suits DON'T look enough like the comic. LOL Psylocke's suit is dead on. Looks better on the cover than it does in the pic below it. I hate to admit it but Olivia Munn looks great as her. Too bad she can't act for shit. As for Apocalypse.....well he's such a dumb looking character anyway, I've always thought. It had to be hard to look enough like him but to not look as goofy as he does in the comics. Never liked Apocalypse so I guess I'm not really caring if he looks like a Power Rangers villain. LOL

@k4tzm4n: As far I was aware, they are also adding CGI effects to Apoc and they aren't on those images.

Man, Olivia Munn can ROCK the Thong.

REALLY hope they don't kill her off, so she has a chance to come back as an actual X-Man. ESPECIALLY if X-Force is still going to be a thing (maybe cast of Cable, Deadpool, Psylocke, Archangel, and Warpath. That way it's all characters who have been introduced in the films except Cable).

I had a feeling that they might mess up with Apoc. He seems a bit difficult.

Going with past experience I'm a little worried they're going to mess up Psylocke's character again.

I hope it's fourth time lucky.

I think Apocalypse looks better in the second pic than he does on the cover. I'm withholding judgment till I see a trailer at least.

Her costume is atrocious imo

Storm looks alright and Apoc (in my opinion) looks okay, as well.

For once (outside of First Class) the X-Men movies actually like like X-Men movies. Seriously they look so f*cking good it's like Marvel studios did this.

Well I wasn't planning on seeing this anyway, was hoping the pics might change my mind and don't get me wrong Psylocke looks pretty good but as for Apocalypse...well I've got to agree with a lot of the other comments. He looks an awful lot like that Power Ranger bad guy and I had to see him enough during my babysitting days. On an ending high note Magneto doesn't look bad.
