Thanks to the final "X-Men: Apocalypse" trailer, we all know that Hugh Jackman's Wolverine will make a cameo appearance in the movie. However, the nature of his role is going to be the real surprise, as director Bryan Singer recently teased that "he's the Wolverine you've never seen before."
During a recent interview with HeyUGuys, Singer stated that Logan will be vastly different from how fans have seen him portrayed in the past, and "X-Men: Apocalypse" may be the first time we get to see his famous 'Berserker Rage'. Maybe the makers are setting up the stage for his final R-rated "Wolverine 3"?
"What's really nice about his cameo is that he's the Wolverine you've never seen before. He's truly Weapon X. Not just the guy coming out of the tank, but the weapon," said the director.
Writer Simon Kinberg elaborated on that, revealing that Wolverine's cameo was originally very different and that the version we will all see in the film now will indeed be the early Weapon X from the comic books.
"We talked about a lot of different versions. There was a version where he got introduced in the middle of the movie and became this sort of drill sergeant for the kids, but that felt like it stepped on Raven's role of becoming the leader to the kids."
"There were two or three different incarnations that we tried, but none of them felt quite right. As we were constructing the movie, we always imagined that they were abducted and taken [to Alkali Lake — the underground base for the Weapon X programme] and that Weapon X would be there and you'd see something that you've never really seen in these movies before which is the full on, out of control, animalistic, stripped down Wolverine."
