This time of year is when summer blockbusters begin to hit our cinema screens and in a competitive marketplace, film studios will do anything to get an edge.

In an attempt to increase the number of cinema-goers ahead of the release of X-Men Apocalypse, 20th Century FOX teamed up with Manchester United in this strange crossover trailer.

As James McAvoy's Professor X attempts to assemble a team of X-Men, David de Gea and Anthony Martial are suggested due to their reflexes and speed.

Professor X rejects the duo out of hand before settling on 'a different kind of mutant', who happens to be none other than Wayne Rooney.

We will let you judge the England captain's acting ability for yourself.
