Most know that the apocalypse is well under way. Luckily for the human race in the real world, this is just limited to the X-Men comic book universe.
The final trailer for the film that’s set to hit theatres next month already boasts an all-star cast including James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne and Oscar Isaac. Well now pundits can add one extra name to that bill: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
As the film gears up to take on the DC juggernauts of Suicide Squad and its own Marvel cousin, Captain America: Civil War, the surprise announcement was made last night with Jackman himself posting a short clip on Instagram with the simple caption, “W.”
Time to drum up those sentimental feels all the way back from 2000. X-Men: Apocalypse will arrive on May 27.
