Watch: X-Men: Apocalypse Post-Credit Scene


X-Men: Apocalypse is now out in theaters as advanced screenings took place today, and of course with that comes the leaked post-credit scene.

Spoiler info below.

"X-Men: Apocalypse" has a May 27, 2016 release directed by Bryan Singer starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Josh Helman, Lana Condor & Ben Hardy.


Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. 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.

The X-Men: Apocalypse post-credit scene features the aftermath of the Wolverine berserker rage scene involving the X-Men escape. Clean-up is underway with guys in suits picking up the Weapon X blood where we see it's placed into a briefcase which is labeled "Essex Corporation." In the comics, Nathaniel Essex is Mr. Sinister.

Simon Kinberg also said the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credit scene would set up other X-Men movies down the road:

It’s a nod toward potentially a lot of different movies. I mean certainly the Wolverine movie is related to what happens at the end of it, but there’s also another character that’s introduced, at least in name, in the tag and he could show up in any host of different X-Men films. Maybe a Gambit movie, maybe another X-Men movie.”
