Luckily, those who stuck around after ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ had good reason to. 'Apocalypse’s post-credits scene has done what so many others over the year have also, teasing possibilities for a future instalment in the series but it concerned characters most film-goers won’t know a great deal about - so here’s a quick spoiler-filled explainer. The end credits scene returns to the Weapon X facility that housed one of 'X-Men: Apocalypse’s second act action scenes, in which Jean Grey, Cyclops and Nightcrawler attempt to spring Mystique, Beast and Quicksilver from William Stryker’s imprisonment.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ director Bryan Singer has revealed that he pitched the idea of introducing X-23 - “the female Wolverine" - into the ongoing X-Men series. As 'Apocalypse’ hits cinemas, featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in his penultimate appearance as the character, Fox will naturally be looking for ways to replace him - and X-23 certainly represents one such way. Fandango discussed the upcoming 'X-Force’ spin-off with Singer, also asking him whether Fox had asked for his guidance in regard to replacing Jackman after his final foray as the character in 2017’s third Wolverine spin-off.
Yes, the Australian is one of the biggest box office stars in the world, but that’s largely thanks to his multiple appearances as Wolverine across the X-Men universe.

Seems we may have reason to believe that Taylor Swift will appear in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’… as one of the most notorious X-Men characters of them all. Yes, who better than one of the reigning queens of pop music to take on the role of Dazzler, the disco mutant? For starters, last summer ‘X-Men’ producer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg shared a photograph on Twitter of himself with Swift and ‘Apocalypse’ actors James McAvoy and Sophie Turner.
“There’s a crossover between ‘X-Men’ and ‘Game Of Thrones’, they’re both about a younger generation finding their powers, finding out who they are, and what their place in the world is. “Obviously, they did it for that character because Brando showed up so fat Coppola didn’t know how to introduce him, and he thought ‘I’ll do it very slowly and gradually and hide the body’ because it might be a shock to the audience.
