Who will die in X-Men: Apocalypse?

By Alex Wiggan


“…the audience goes into the movie thinking that anything can happen. I mean anything, anyone could die. Any possibility could occur, but characters are still moving towards their immutable place.” – Bryan Singer


So come on, who do you think will bite the bullet in X-Men: Apocalypse? According to director, Bryan Singer, “anyone could die”.

In a recent interview with Collider, the X-Men director – who returns to the franchise with X-Men: Apocalypse – expressed his feelings about the fate of characters appearing in the series. According to Singer, no matter where you think the characters are destined to go in future movies, “anything is possible.”

For those with short memories, Singer recently reset the X-Men movie universe with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, thanks to a spot of time travelling involving Wolverine. However, Singer has now warned that not everything is as it appears.

Although Days of Future Past showed a glimpse of the future, with many characters, including Jean Grey and Cyclops, safe and well in the X-Mansion, not every mutant will end up where we expect them to be. It would seem that Wolverine’s time travel antics may have changed events a little and this could result in different paths for established characters and even a few deaths along the way.

Explaining the time-related techno-babble behind the situation, Singer, said:

“When two things are happening simultaneously in quantum physics it’s what’s called the Super Position and when the Observer finally observes the outcome that’s called the ‘Collapsing of the Super Position’ which is what happened when Wolverine woke up and saw all the happiness.

“So yes that is the outcome we hope for, that is the outcome we aspire to, and that’s the outcome we are moving towards, but we saw in Days of Future Past another dark world. What says that can’t happen again?”

Hmmm, so if events can change and characters can be eliminated from the X-Universe, who do you think it will be?

Magneto? Mystique? Nightcrawler? Perhaps an even bigger shake-up is on the cards. Or perhaps Singer is merely speculating on the possibility of change. What do you think?

Will X-Men: Apocalypse be an actual apocalypse for the X-Men? Let us know your thoughts and let the speculation commence.
