Bryan Singer, director of “X-Men: Apocalypse,” hinted at Wolverine’s key role in the upcoming film.
Despite Hugh Jackman’s tweet that he will appear on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” the 50-year-old director said that Wolverine’s appearance “may not be exactly like what we think,” Screen Rant said in a report.
“Make of that what you want,” Bryan Singer said in an interview with Empire Online. “I will say, it’s not simple. There’s something more pivotal that occurs with that. It hints to a sequence that again fits within the canon of all six movies, and the birth of a new direction. It’s not insignificant, nor is it simply just a throw-in.”
When asked if it was really Wolverine’s claws, the director and writer said, “It’s not the only shot you’re gonna see, let’s put it that way.”
In its trailer, a Cyclops, played by Tye Sheridan, speaks to Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and says, “We had a little help.”
The screen focused on a bloody fist with familiar claws, which resembles that of Wolverine, in a hallway full of dead bodies.
Amidst speculations on Wolverine’s role for “X-Men: Apocalypse,” Cosmic Book News hinted that Bryan Singer might be referring to the introduction of a new and younger Wolverine. This, after reports were released saying Hugh Jackman will have his final Wolverine movie on March next year.
Aside from Wolverine, “X-Men: Apocalypse” cast members include Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne.
Also included in the cast are Sophie Turner, Lucas Till, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lana Condor, Alexandra Shipp, Olivia Munn & Ben Hardy.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will hit the big screens on May 27, 2016.
