Latino Review’s El Mayimbe has offered a small update concerning the production schedule for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, as well as news on three possible cameos from fan-favorite mutants. According to the report, cameras will begin rolling on Apocalypse in Montreal on April 28th, and the film include small parts for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Halle Berry’s Storm and Channing Tatum’s Gambit.
Considering the fact that Jackman has been in every X-Men film to date, it’s no surprise that he’ll appear in Apocalypse as well. Tatum, meanwhile, will star as Gambit in his own spinoff film slated for release on October 7th, 2016, so a cameo in Apocalypse makes sense, as it will help introduce him to audiences and pave the way for his solo adventure.
As for Halle Berry’s Storm, there’s no telling what she’s doing here; the film is likely to spend most of its time in the 1980s, with Alexandra Shipp taking on the younger version of the character. Perhaps we’ll see what’s Berry’s version of the weather-changing mutant is doing in the present day? Only time will tell.
Apocalypse is poised to be yet another earth-shattering entry in the X-Men franchise, as it rounds out the prequel trilogy that began with First Class, marks the end of the line for stars like Jennifer Lawrence, and re-introduces key mutants into the series like young versions of Jean Grey and Cyclops. Stay tuned over the next few weeks and I’m sure we’ll be hearing about even more cameos and surprises as X-Men: Apocalypse gears up for production and heads toward its release on May 27th, 2016.
