Bryan Singer on Wolverine's cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse

05.12.2016

X-Men: Apocalypse Hugh Jackman Wolverine Bryan Singer Simon Kinberg

The last trailer seemed to spill the beans on Wolverine's involvement in the upcoming X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, but if you'd like to refrain from discovering more about Wolverine's role in the film, read no further because there will be spoilers. As Hugh Jackman has appeared in every X-MEN film thus far, I would have been very surprised had X-MEN: APOCALYPSE director Bryan Singer not included him. Judging from the trailer, Wolverine will encounter our young mutant heroes at Alkali Lake and give them "a little help," namely, killing off scores of bad guys.

While speaking with HeyUGuys, Bryan Singer teased that we'll be seeing a side of Wolverine which we've never seen before.

What's really nice about his cameo is that he's the Wolverine you've never seen before. He's truly Weapon X. Not just the guy coming out of the tank, but the weapon.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE screenwriter and X-MEN franchise producer Simon Kinberg also revealed that Wolverine's role was initially much different than what they ended up with in the finished film.

There were a lot of different versions. I didn't feel pressured to put Wolverine in this movie because I feel like there's so many great characters in the X-Men Universe that we probably could have made a movie without Wolverine and it still would have been an engaging film. We talked about a lot of different versions. There was a version where he got introduced in the middle of the movie and became this sort of drill sergeant for the kids, but that felt like it stepped on Raven's role of becoming the leader to the kids. There were two or three different incarnations that we tried, but none of them felt quite right. As we were constructing the movie, we always imagined that they were abducted and taken [to Alkali Lake] and that Weapon X would be there and you'd see something that you've never really seen in these movies before which is the full on, out of control, animalistic, stripped down Wolverine.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

Love Wolverine but....

The part where singer admits "Raven" is the leader of the kids here still pisses me off. Get her out of these movies.

Interesting that Singer did this cameo and it makes me wish that Wolverine Origins was actually a movie about the Weapon X program. A proper story guys, not that shitty version we got. It intrigues me from what Logan knows about Stryker in DOFP, that he still signs up for the project in this film. I was wondering for a while that maybe Apocalypse takes on Strykers form and gives Wolvie his claws and Angel his metal wings.

Well considering DOFP reset everything, it's still entirely plausible. In the original version, I believe Logan volunteers for the project. But in DOFP, Logan of the past has no memory of what Logan from the future did with his body, right? So at the end of DOFP when Stryker pulls him out of the water, he's doing so because he saw him in action earlier in the movie. So it seems like the reset re-wrote the origin from Logan volunteering for the project to Logan being abducted into the Weapon

So it seems like the reset re-wrote the origin from Logan volunteering for the project to Logan being abducted into the Weapon X program. It also kind of serves to explain his memory loss in the original trilogy. So Logan still ending up in Weapon X makes sense within the new context. And I may have gone cross-eyed trying to figure all of this out, lol.

Mickloud, I could be wrong but didn't it show that Stryker was actually Mystique at the end of DOFP? I wondered why that was and what they'd do with it. Maybe that's why Mystique knows where he is in this film (but didn't try to stop it?).

Also, crazily enough, I've talked to A LOT of "normal film goers," ones who don't get on these sites and prolly didn't read a lot of comics, and I've surpringly found a LOT of them think origins is the best X film ever (this was pre-DOFP). I couldn't

I couldn't believe it, but I think there's a large group of less-educated, film-wise, ppl who love it. I fn hate it.

@MickLoud - Oh look, now I've gone cross eyed. Haha, thanks, makes sense to me. I think Singers final plan is to connect the NEXT X-Men film with his original back in 1999.

@bealzf - How unfortunate that you have to talk to these people thinking that Origins was a good film.

Yeah...one time I was literally completely outnumbered. And I was like y'all are kidding right? That's the universally hated X film? Another crazy thing is I bet they ALLLLLL loved deadpool, and maybe even bash origins now Bc Reynolds and dpool fans have. But I didn't know what to do. I was like have u guys not seen x2? Or first class? Do u not understand how they just tried to show half baked cameo after half baked cameo, the special effects, and how the ending was a complete cluster

It still would've been a clusterfuck had Reynolds monster been an entirely new creation and not just the destruction of the deadpool character. But it was surreal. A good 10 ppl agreed with origins and no one agreed with me. It felt like I was surrounded by scientologists or something. They prolly own like every Martin Lawrence film tho. Every black person in a fat suit movie. And origins was pretty successful financially wasn't it?

Ah they should call wolverine 3 "Weapon X."

I'm hoping he will have the helmet on, and i have a feeling he will.

I would rather him be the drill sergeant instead of mystique but I guess that doesn't make much sense in the timeline. I'd rather beast take the lead. I agree with all the J Law/Mystique complaints.

I wonder how the students end up at the Lake, presumably in the facility, and I hope it makes since why they are there instead of it just being an excuse to show Wolverine

I wonder how the students end up at the Lake, presumably in the facility, and I hope it makes since why they are there instead of it just being an excuse to show Wolverine post adamantium. And wasn't mystique the one who took wolverine at the end of DOFP? What happened with that? I reallllllly hope the 90s version takes some cues from the 90s cartoon, and kinda celebrates the colors and time period the way Vaughn did with the 60s and first class. Keep those costumes. And make cyclops the leader and a badass.

Side note, from what I understand is Magneto's MO in this, I really don't like they are making Quicksilver his son in the film. The joke ab my mom knew a guy like u in DOFP was cute, but they should've left it at that. How does Quicksilver find out a decade later?

Annnnnnd, the PR ppl for this film released an online old school video game called Mutant X, and you are clearly playing as Cable. So I absolutely think he will be involved in the post credits. Was Liam Neeson's name tossed around for the cast this article? I'm not sure how big he actually is, but he can play badass, no-nonsense, and do action. He's also very funny and can be hilarious kinda playing it strate, like he did on the Ricky Gervais/Warwick Davis show. So as a kind of buddy cop duo, he's in my top 2-3 along with Mel

...I know dude, I bet everyone who comes to this site knows, that's why I said "in the film." (Tho actually didn't they retcon that in the comics?). In DOFP there's that funny little Easter egg line where QSilver says my mom knows a guy like you, but it seemed like they weren't gonna follow it. Not gonna spoil it, and I could be wrong, but from what I've read Magneto's MO using the film, it's kinda odd they are making Qsilver his son in the film, as we all know comic films don't adapt every

I guess DOFP coulda been on the news and his mom said that guys ur dad but he waited a decade to say something ab it?

Just one quick correction to what you wrote. Mystique doesn't take Wolverine at the end of the film, it's Stryker that takes him, presumably to put him into Weapon X.

And I think you might have to wait and see the movie before you make any judgments about Quiksilver being the son of Magneto. You have no idea how they explain it in the movie, so it could make perfect sense. In DOFP there's the easter egg line, but I felt like they did that as the character itself was not going to be

In DOFP there's the easter egg line, but I felt like they did that as the character itself was not going to be developed THAT MUCH in the movie, and in addition they have the MCU version to compete with so they figured "let's not put that much into the character this ONE time".

Mickloud, I just commented on one of your comments - I could be wrong but I really thought Stryker was revealed to be mystique. I'll have to double check. I'm not a huge fan of DOFP and only saw it twice so I could totally be wrong but idk where I got that from. If I am wrong, the Stryker thing makes 100% sense.

Of course I haven't seen the movie, but the quicksilver/magneto thing is a concern, not so much a judgement. It could make perfect sense for sure.

I took the DOFP as kinda

I took the DOFP as kinda fan service/inside joke, and I thought it was pretty clever. I'll never understand why they didn't ask qsilver to continue and help...I mean they already asked him to be apart of a dangerous mission that also would make him an enemy of the state, I always thought it was always Bc the story was kinda half baked. I never felt like that line was written with the intent of being followed up later, and had his scene not been so successful, I don't think he would be in this one.

Idk how much uv read about this film, and of course what I read could be completely wrong, but from what I understand there's something that happens to magneto that brings him back involved in all the [link] war/stuff. If what I read is true, tho it could play out multiple ways, I just find it odd that mags doesn't know he has another son and that he already met him, and the joking way qsilver says that line is kinda odd. It's just a concern I have, similar to ppls concerns of the way apocalypse looks. I will say the film looks underwhelming from footage and now reviews, but I haven't written it off.

Ok I'm gonna go dbl check the DOFP ending. Thanks for the intelligent, rational conversation on film. I know I'm also to blame sometimes for jumping into "how can u be so stupid for thinking/liking this!?!?!?," but it's a rarity to have a real convo that's not hostile, pretentious, or bullying. I genuinely love "arguing" ab films

Yeah go back and watch DOFP. At the last second when fishing wolverine out, Stryker says I'll take care of it, he turns his back on everyone, and his eyes turn yellow. I, and others (says it on Wikipedia and other sites), assume it's mystique unless he is a mutant himself. I don't understand that twist as it fits well with it actually being Stryker.

It'll be a nice to see a redo of this particular Wolverine storyline considering that Origins basically butchered it the first time around. Should be great to have the other characters at younger stages in their lives involved as well.

And I know Jackman said that Wolverine 3 was his last film, but I think he would be a fool to not don the claws one more time for a Deadpool sequel.

I think he will become a glorified cameo version of what RDJ is to the MCU...at least I hope. Hugh will always be Wolverine to me...

But they did a good job with it on X2, tho it was flashbacks.

I'd love to see their banter but I'm pretty sure he will be done. He's too big a cash cow for that. RDJ is a costar of cap 3, and I'm sure will have a large part in Spidey. I have a feeling, or at least think they should, introduce Laura inW3
