Final Spoiler Warning...

Summary of scene - The seen opens with a sea of people bowing down and worshiping.   They are chanting En Sabah Nur which means "The First One."   The scene pans and you see that a pyramid is being constructed by floating blocks assembling a pyramid.

 
We then see the object of the worshiper's attention a Pharaoh dressed character is staring at the Pyramid, his skin is noticeably blue. The Pharaoh character's attention is focused on the pyramid where it can be surmised he is the one assembling the structure using telepathy.  As the camera further pans we see a silhouette of four riders on horse back looking down upon the sea of people.




The film offers no explanation of this scene so many X-Men movie fans are likely confused.



The scene is a direct reference to an X-men mega villain named Apocalypse.  Next to Magneto, Apocalypse is the X-Men's greatest villain.  His real name is En Sabah Nur (the First One) which references that he is the first mutant.  He eventually changes his name to Apocalypse after being enraged for being spurned by a woman for his blue/gray skin.

Who is Apocalypse? Why is he Important to the X-men? 

 He is an ancient, immortal mutant with vast technology and the desire for dominating all life on the planet.   The scene basically tells us that there is an Apocalypse in this universe, he is ancient like his comic counterpart, and he has / uses four horsemen like his comic counterpart.  He will also have multiple powers that include telepathy that he is using to construct the pyramids.

Who is Apocalypse? Why is he Important to the X-men?

The more you learn about Apocalypse the more the next movie is intriguing.  The X-Men and really no Comic Book Movies come to mind at having attempted to show a battle with something as powerful as Apocalypse.  In many ways it will be like battling Godzilla.  See below for more information on Apocalypse and even how he is defeated.
