Even though we all knew it was happening, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine has now been officially confirmed to be in X-Men: Apocalypse. We had heard about this for awhile from a couple of our sources here at EastCoastMovieGuys, we just hadn't had anyone else confirm it until now. Our friend Umberto Gonzalez of Heroichollywood, just confirmed this a little while ago saying:
"This Thursday in Las Vegas, during the 20th Century Fox presentation at Cinemacon, Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos along with Co-Chairman Stacey Snider will premiere a new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. Here is the kicker it’s got the special appearance of, um, a “character.”"
That special character is of course Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. This reveal also confirms our sources, that had told us we would be getting a new trailer sometime this week during Cinemacon.
Pretty cool right? Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.
“Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help ofProfessor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.”
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27th.
