“X-Men: Apocalypse” will show the biggest showdown between the X-Men and the most powerful mutant in the “X-Men” universe, Apocalypse. Things are naturally expected to go awry when the formidable villain will try to create a new world order. Many of the mutants from the “X-Men” will stand next to each other fighting against the God like mutant. There is, however, two mutants whose relationship will be explored more in the movie.
According to Cinema Blend, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto and Evan Peters’ Quicksilver will find their relationship getting explored even further. For all those who are aware, in the comics, Magneto happens to be Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch’s father, however, this relationship was not explored in detail until the moment when Quicksilver actually came face to face with Magneto.
Back in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” Charles Xavier accompanied by Wolverine and the Beast recruited the speedster to help them break Magneto out of the prison, which was on the most secure location in the world. Magneto, who was holed up under the Pentagon, had a brief moment with his son who stated that his mother once knew someone who could bend metals. The reference was pretty comical yet it dropped a hint that maybe in near future Magneto would come forward and reveal himself to be Quicksilver’s father.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is going to be that movie, which will be focusing on the father-son relationship because Quicksilver is going to join Professor Xavier’s team in order to save the hypnotized Magneto, who under the influence of Apocalypse, is going to become one of the horsemen. A significant amount of changes should be expected because 10 years would have passed since the events of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and the movie will be set in the 80’s.
In other news, Den of Geek added that some reshoots for the movie will be taking place in Montreal and if sources are to be believed then Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine could have a little cameo in the movie. Despite the fact that Hugh has himself made it clear that his last appearance as the Wolverine will be in “Wolverine 3,” we certainly don’t see why he couldn’t make a cameo appearance in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” The movie will release next year on May 27th.
