CBMB: Simon Kinberg Hints at New Characters to Expect in X-Men: Apocalypse

By Muuka Muyumba

X-Men movies writer and executive producer, Simon Kinberg, was recently interviewed for the promotion of the digital video release of X-Men: Days of Future Past and was asked about his organization system and preparation for X-Men: Apocalyse.

Kinberg noted that Psylocke was in the initial draft of Days of Future Past. A script was already written for the character, but there wasn’t “enough of a part she would play in a movie that was already full of many, many mutants.” However, Kinberg noted that Psylocke may be featured in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Also according to Kinberg, is that Scarlet Witch “had to be sacrificed for the main momentum of the film.” However, Scarlet Witch may also be featured in the sequel since she is apparently everyone’s favorite.

Another mutant that was supposed to be in Days of Future Past was Cable, another popular mutant creation from artist Rob Liefeld. Kinberg did not give away much detail but suggested that “…we love the character, we’d love to find a place for him in these movies, but I cannot confirm or deny which characters will actually be in X-Men: Apocalypse until I read some spoilers!”

X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
