There's no word on who will be playing him, but thanks to the latest Instagram post from director Bryan Singer, we now know that Caliban will make an appearance in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. In the comics, Caliban can sense the presence of other mutants, and was used by Callisto to find mutants to create the underground community known as the Morlocks.

As to how the character might be used in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, Caliban has an important connection to the titular villain in the Marvel comics. Caliban served as his Hellhound before being "promoted" to Death, one of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse. He was also recruited into the X-Force by Cable, and was an X-Factor member, but it's more likely he will be the Death Horseman in the upcoming film instead of part of the X-Men team. Do you think the Morlocks will be in Singer's new movie, and who do you want to portray Caliban?

This is such cool news! I remember saving my money and paying $12 for X-Factor #24 (1st Archangel) back in the early 90s. My first step into paying more than face value for back issue comics. I'm not holding my breath that Singer will be faithful to the comics, but I'm loving the homagé to X-Factor and the inclusion of Caliban.

A great fit for his horsemen. Hopefully we get a look at the Morlocks on why Caliban chooses his side. So far we have Caliban and Angel... come on Mr.Sinister!

Well from that shot, it almost looks like Caliban will be in the sewers or at least an abandoned subway tunnel. So perhaps the Morlocks are in it, or at least alluded to in the movie.
Overall, it's cool that they're going to get other mutants to be the Horsemen. I had a feeling the movie would have the core X-Men - Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Angel becoming the horsemen and Prof. X and Magneto need to stop them.

I hope Singer uses him effectively in this and isn't just in this for five minutes (ie Quicksilver in DOFP). There's a lot of new and old recurring mutants in this, who I hope all get the chance to develop throughout the course of the story and aren't shoved to the side.

Morlocks

I used to love the morlocks story lines from the 90s. I hope they don't just cram them in there though, this movie already has a lot going on, and the morlocks could make for a cool sub-plot in a future film
