Firstly, we might be getting a brand new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer this Thursday! According to our friends at Heroic Hollywood, FOX CEO Jim Gianopulos and Co-Chairman Stacey Snider will release a new X-Men: Apocalypse 3D trailer at CinemaCon, a convention celebrating and focusing on movie theater owners and operators. Secondly, according to Heroic Hollywood’s currently unnamed (and therefore currently unsubstantiated) sources, a legendary character may appear in this particular X-Men: Apocalypse trailer.
Who is it? Well, do you really want to know? Yes? Okay, then. Just remember; this is an UNCONFIRMED RUMOR.
Yes, HH’s sources are stating that Wolverine will be appearing in the brand new, 3D X-Men: Apocalypse trailer!
Apparently, Wolverine was never part of initial filming, but was cleverly included in a later batch of reshoots.
If Wolverine is actually showing up in X-Men: Apocalypse, then I say…WHEW! Why? Because, currently, there’s a group of 12-15-year-olds fighting the following, ridiculously powerful mutants:
1. Apocalypse – He really doesn’t need any help and could probably destroy the Earth all by his lonesome.
2. Magneto – Ditto.
3. Psylocke – She’ll cut through adolescent X-Men like she cut through that car, all while invading their minds and forcing them to relive the psychological trauma of teething.
4. Archangel – He’ll simply fly above you and rain down 500 knives per second. There’s no salvaging your X-Man uniform after this.
5. Storm – Uh, the sky is her murder weapon. You’re seriously f##ked, junior X-Men.
So, it would be great if Wolverine showed up and gutted a few of these more powerful transgressors so the angst-brigade…er, the X-Men have a fighting chance.
If he arrives only to check the ‘Team Apocalypse’ box, then…Screw it; I’ll leave the theater. Watching children being slaughtered is something I try to avoid.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens up May 27th, 2016 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn and Lucas Till.
