Earlier this week came the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer that confirmed what we all suspected: Wolverine would be making an appearance in the upcoming X-Men movie after all. Most of us also assumed that decision was made because Hugh Jackman is a huge...
By now you know pretty much every mutant that’s set to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, from returning characters like Mystique and Magneto to the younger versions of favorites like Jean Grey and Cyclops. But there’s still plenty we don’t know about, and director Bryan Singer’s latest photo update teases the return of a mutant we’ve seen on the big screen before — like Deadpool, this one also made his debut in the unfortunate X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Grain of salt warning, as this rumor is nowhere near confirmed, but feel free to file it somewhere between “plausible” and “probable.” While Fox has been working to expand their X-Men spinoff films and nurturing Deadpool’s corner of that universe, the studio has yet to announce the next proper X-Men sequel. Bryan Singer has expressed interest in returning to the franchise after he films 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which means it could be a few years or so before another X-Men movie hits theaters. In the meantime, the latest rumor about the future of X-Men suggests a film that could make some fans pretty happy.
Can a trailer spoil a film if the scenes in question are taken out of context? That’s been an ongoing debate among movie fans for some time, but here’s a new question: Can a trailer itself be spoiled? Well, if this X-Men: Apocalypse rumor is correct (and it probably is), then consider this post a spoiler for the new trailer, which will reportedly arrive online after it premieres this week at Cinema-Con in Las Vegas. The spoiler-sensitive among you should probably turn back now.
Most fans were disappointed (to say the least) by X-Men: The Last Stand, which took one of the most popular X-Men arcs — The Dark Phoenix Saga — and turned it into an Evanescence music video that ultimately did Jean Grey and Scott Summers a major disservice. But Bryan Singer is getting another chance with the beloved mutant couple in X-Men: Apocalypse, which will effectively reboot the characters thanks to that timeline reset in Days of Future Past. Singer shares some thoughts on what we can expect from the newer, younger duo, giving us hope for a little Dark Phoenix redemption.
Hugh Jackman has been rumored to have a part — albeit probably small — in X-Men: Apocalypse for some time. Although the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine will be the actor’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character, there’s still a chance he could appear in Apocalypse, which closes out Bryan Singer’s current trilogy. In addition to maybe-sorta-kinda confirming Jackman’s part in Apocalypse, Singer talks the future of the franchise and his continued involvement in it.
Following the reveal of nine different Empire magazine covers for X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox has released a few more images from the upcoming conclusion to the new X-Men trilogy, featuring another look at Ben Hardy’s Angel, Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur (aka the titular Apocalypse) and some brand new costumes for the heroic mutant crew.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan franchise doesn’t look to be going anywhere just yet, and TV could always use more female leads, so is Red Sonja about to raise her sword? A new report suggests none other than X-Men maestro Bryan Singer himself is working on an “R-rated” TV take on the famed character, likely engineered for cable.
The last time Bryan Singer directed an adaptation of classic tale the result was Jack the Giant Slayer, a movie so bad that it lost Warner Bros. over $100 million and put an end to Singer’s run at Warner Bros (the director had also made Superman...
Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.
