Final X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Goes Claws Out

As you might have guessed from the title, the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse reveals the movie’s big cameo: Wolverine is baaack.

Clearly 20th Century Fox wanted this info to be out in the open—as opposed to the total surprise of Wolverine appearing in X-Men: First Class five years ago—as the trailer ends on a telling shot of who exactly is going to help the X-Men once Apocalypse and his Four Horsemen snatch Charles Xavier away. (You can see how reluctant young!Scott is to admit that they had “a little help” from Logan. It’s like he already knows they’re gonna hate each other.)

It’s fitting: Wolverine is the one who upended the entire timeline in X-Men: Days of Future Past, so we’d want to see him on the other side. And even though the canon has been futzed with, it seems that certain details have remained intact—such as particular mutants giving birth to equally enhanced offspring. Nightcrawler certainly seems to recognize Mystique, though it hasn’t yet been confirmed if she managed to conceive and then abandon him sometime between the events of First Class and Days of Future Past. And Quicksilver just comes right out and says what was cheekily hinted at in First Class, that the guy who recruited him is also his dear dad.

X-Men: Apocalypse comes to theaters May 27.
