Good news for the fans of the Marvel Comics character Cable as the mutant has a chance of appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Actually, Cable almost appeared in X-Men: Days Of Future Past well.

“We also talked about including him in Days of Future Past," Simon Kinberg, writer on DOFP and Apocalypse, told Yahoo. "I will say, we love the character, we’d love to find a place for him in these movies, but I cannot confirm or deny which characters will actually be in Apocalypse until I read some spoilers!"

Another possible mutant that could appear is one that was initially teased in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but ended up getting cut.

Scarlet Witch.

“When we made Days of Future Past there is a reference to her in the scene when they’re at Quicksilver’s house, but we ended up pulling it out because like a lot of things it had to be sacrificed for the main momentum of the film," he said. "It’s a character we all love, because everyone loves Quicksilver so much. The more we can do to explore his family, the better. So maybe."

One more possible mutant could also be Psylocke as she was included in a version of DOFP as well.

“She’s a fan favorite, and also a favorite of mine," Kinberg acknowledged. "We have a small part that she plays in Last Stand, and we talked about including her in Days of Future Past quite seriously, actually. There was a version of the script she was in, and we even auditioned some actors in Montreal. But we didn’t feel there was enough of a part she would play in a movie that was already full of many, many mutants. 

“She has a cool power. I know Bryan thinks she’s a neat character so there’s certainly a chance she’ll be in an X-Men movie some day. Hopefully there’ll be a lot of X-Men movies and there’s lot of mutants we’re yet to fully explore onscreen, even if they’ve had cameos before. Now we’re making more films there’s a chance to dig deeper.”

Two characters that won't be seen: Kitty Pryde and Bishop with the reason given X-Men: Apocalyps will focus on the younger generation of characters from X-Men: First Class.

"X-Men: Apocalypse" has a May 27, 2016 release.
