Bryan Singer Teases New Wolverine For X-Men: Apocalypse
Yesterday saw Hugh Jackman tease Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse on his social networks, and then we all saw Wolverine in the final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer.
Empire caught up with director Bryan Singer who offered an enigmatic response about the scene. While Singer at least offers more of Wolverine will be seen in the film, Singer also says it's the "birth of a new direction."
“Make of that what you want,” he pokerfaces. “I will say, it’s not simple. There’s something more pivotal that occurs with that. It hints to a sequence that again fits within the canon of all six movies, and the birth of a new direction. It’s not insignificant, nor is it simply just a throw-in.” So, will we find out to whom the claws belong? “It’s not the only shot you’re gonna see, let’s put it that way.”
We know Hugh Jackman will be featured in his last Wolverine movie, which hits next March. Is there a chance X-Men: Apocalypse will give us a glimpse of a new - assumed younger - Wolverine?
Watch the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer below.

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.
