Wolverine and his Weapon X transformation at the hands of William Stryker’s Weapon X Program are teased in this new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. It’s rumored the cameo is quite small and was shot during recent pick-ups/reshoots for the film, so don’t expect his role to be as large as it was in Days of Future Past.
I’ll be extremely curious how these events and the new take on Weapon X will factor into Wolverine 3.
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.
