YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
By Matt O.
It was just a couple of weeks ago that the final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer finally revealed to the world that Hugh Jackman's Wolverine would be in the film via a cool little tease at the end of the trailer. Now Director Bryan Singer has confirmed in a recent interview with HeyUGuys that the Wolverine that we see in the film will be way different in this film than we have ever seen him before on the big-screen saying:
"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."
Producer and Writer Simon Kinberg in another interview with HeyUGuys goes on to elaborate more on The Wolverine cameo saying this:
"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."
One of the coolest parts about the interview was after Kinberg said all that about Wolverine's cameo he then went on to talk about the incredible moment when Wolverine meets the young Jean Grey.
"That suddenly became very interesting to us and this notion that there could be this moment between him and Jean which could be really rich as well."
