Hot on the heels of daubing blue paint all over a handful of poor mascots at Old Trafford earlier in the week, Manchester United have now gone up a gear in their megabucks marketing partnership with movie giants 20th Century Fox.


In a rather bizarre new promo for the X-Men: Apocalypse film, club captain Wayne Rooney joins ‘Professor X’ aka James McEvoy for a big budget advert…

Scottish superstar McEvoy looks and sounds oddly like funny man Peter Serafinowicz in the clip, in our view. Although at least it doesn’t take itself too seriously. However, it is Rooney’s acting chops which one again steal the show. Almost as good/bad as this…

‘They say he is a legend’, indeed!
