X-MEN: APOCALYPSE (2016): Bryan Singer Says Weapon X Will Appear

Weapon X

Bryan Singer confirms Weapon X will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse. The Grand Jury Prize-winning Public Access and X-Men film franchise director said that the character will have a cameo in the movie.

Asked about Apocalypse in an interview with HeyUGuys, Singer talked about Wolverine’s appearance in the film. Describing the mutant’s look, Singer revealed that this is “the Wolverine you’ve never seen before. He’s truly Weapon X,” news that is sure to delight fans of both the comics and the movies:

“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.”

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
