If you've been keeping up with all the X-Men: Apocalypse teases ahead of its release next month, then a certain rumored cameo has probably kept you awake at nights with its potential for greatness. The latest trailer, thankfully, finally delivers a glorious confirmation of that cameo in the form of some very recognizable hand action:
"The problem with Days of Future Past is it's hard to sequelize," Apocalypse writer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly back in December. "Whenever we talked about the sequel, the challenge was that it needed to feel not necessarily bigger visually, but that the stakes needed to feel bigger." As the latest look at the Bryan Singer-directed ninth entry in the X-Men franchise shows, the stakes are clearly quite high indeed.
Jackman's Apocalypse appearance reached peak rumor status back in November, when multiple reports of Jackman-centered reshoots started flooding everyone's respective timelines. Citing a report from Le Journal de Montréal, Comic Book alerted the world that "it seems that Hugh Jackman will be on hand" for reshoots. That rumor then faded into relative obscurity, before fittingly returning to confirm itself with the trailer above.
X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters May 27, 2016 and comes stacked with James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn, and more. Plan your Memorial Day activities accordingly, which of course just means: don't forget to also make room for that massive Disney Channel marathon.
