Out first look at how some of the crazier costumes in the X-Men universe have been translated to screen is here, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Olivia Munn looks surprisingly decent in Psylocke's improbable get up, and there's virtually no way to ruin a Storm design that includes her mohawk. But ...

Alright, let's just put it out here up front. Apocalypse was never a design that was going to translate well to screen. Look at this guy:


He looks like he's wearing ominous clown makeup.

But lots of costumes can look awkward in still photos and seamless after post-production. Maybe by the time X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters, Oscar Isaac (yeah, the guy who's playing Poe Dameron in The Force Awakens) will look less like Ivan Ooze and more like an intimidating foe of the X-Men.
