It’ll be up to the X-Men to prevent the end of the world this spring.

Humanity is faced with its greatest threat yet when Apocalypse, the universe’s first and most powerful mutant, seeks to destroy civilization and create an ominous new world order in Marvel’s latest trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which debuted during Super Bowl 50.

The merciless villain played by Oscar Isaac and his cast of mutant cohorts rip down skyscrapers and hurl cars through the air in the action-packed, 30-second teaser, as Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and her team of valiant X-Men vow to end Apocalypse’s quest for dominance.

“Let’s go to war,” Lawrence’s character proclaims.

That’ll be easier said than done, though, as the invincible and immortal Apocalypse showcases his unmatched strength in the final scene of the trailer, as he chokes the struggling Raven while the city perishes behind her.

“Everything they built, will fall,” an imposing voice intones during the height of destruction in the teaser.

The trailer also reveals new footage of Olivia Munn’s sword-wielding, telepathic villain Psylocke, who effortlessly slices through a car with her purple energy sword.

Munn and Lawrence join a cast that also includes James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert).

The superhero thriller, which serves as the sequel to the critically acclaimed “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” hits theaters on May 27.

The new “X-Men” trailer was just one of the highly anticipated upcoming blockbusters teased during Sunday’s big game, as TV spots for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Jason Bourne” each sparked considerable buzz on social media.

Disney’s CGI-heavy “Jungle Book,” meanwhile, released the most eye-popping trailer of them all, however, as it featured stunning new glimpses of the tree-covered settings and realistic talking animals in the movie’s first full trailer.
