A bootleg version of the Comic-Con trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse” has leaked online following its debut in Hall H on Sunday.

Fans were blown away by the footage, which comes after just five weeks of filming. In the trailer, fans got their first look at a host of new faces to the franchise, including Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Oscar Isaac as supervillain Apocalypse.

The trailer also featured footage of Rose Byrne, who reprises her role as Moira MacTaggert from “X-Men: First Class,” telling Professor X (James McAvoy) about cults that worship mutants as deities.

The meaty preview from director Bryan Singer’s sequel ends with a shot of Professor X with a shaved head, which marks the first time audiences have seen McAvoy sporting the cue ball look since taking over the character from Patrick Stewart.

20th Century Fox’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” opens in theaters May 26, 2016.

Watch the cast talk about “X-Men” during the panel.
