Final X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Clears Up That Wolverine Mystery
The final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse has arrived and it looks like we finally have an answer to that burning Wolverine question once and for all courtesy of a nice little tease right at the end.
Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse was announced, there has been one burning question on the lips of just about every X-Men fan around the world. 'Will Hugh Jackman continue his track record of appearing in (almost) every X-Men movie to date?'For a good long while, everyone involved with the movie remained tight-lipped on the issue of Wolverine, but at San Diego Comic Con last year, there was an odd moment when Jackman briefly appeared on stage for the X-Men: Apocalypse panel. But it wasn't until late last year that the plot truly began to thicken, with reports of reshoots for X-Men: Apocalypse adding Jackman's Wolverine into the movie. Of course, we never really expected Jackman to miss the conclusion to this latest X-Men trilogy, but there has always been that nagging fear in the back of our heads.
But, with the release of the final trailer, we finally have our answer. Whether it was by way of reshoots or if this was the plan all along, we now know that Wolverine will be playing a role in X-Men: Apocalypse....As if it was ever in doubt.
Away from the big Wolverine mystery, this trailer added a ton of action of, some more shots of Apocalypse's origin, and proof that Jennifer Lawrence is going to finally have a meatier role to play in what is thought to be her last X-Men movie. It also added to the long-standing battle between Mutants and bridges....Mutants apparently really hate bridges.
Check out screengrabs from the trailer, below.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped 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 of Professor 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 is released in theaters on May 27th 2016
