Bryan Singer Was Killed By Wolverine In Hugh Jackman's X-Men: Apocalypse Cameo

Director Bryan Singer has revealed details of Hugh Jackman’s cameo in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ - the star’s final appearance in a mainline X-Men film before his farewell to the character in 2017’s solo spin-off.

Singer also revealed that he stepped in front of the camera to partake in the scene, in a special moment between the pair - whose working relationship began with 2000’s original 'X-Men’.

The scene in question depicts Jackman as Wolverine in his feral Weapon X guise, inside the facility that grafted indestructible adamantium to his skeleton.

Wiped of memories and incredibly pissed off, Weapon X is inadvertently let loose by newbie mutant heroes Jean Grey, Nightcrawler and Cyclops. Wolverine then takes his rage out on dozens of security guards in a brutal and bloody scene.

In the latest issue of Empire, the magazine says to Singer: “The last shot Hugh Jackman filmed on a main X-Men movie was of Wolverine killing you, in a cameo as a security guard. A nice way to come full circle?”

In response Singer said: “Yes! I did it on purpose. It’s not my usual thing, but to do it then to get a bear hug from a bloody, but very happy, Wolverine was great. It was very poetic.”

Singer also discussed the timing of the scene, which filmed only a few months ago in February. “It’s very important for Hugh that, if he does a scene like this where he’s exposing his body, it be his body and that it be him doing these very dangerous stunts with all this metal flying around.”

The timing worked out because Jackman was in training for his last ever appearance as the character in 2017’s third spin-off - thought to be based on the Old Man Logan comic line. The film is currently shooting with director James Mangold - returning from 2013’s 'The Wolverine’.

The untitled film will be released on 3 March 2017.
