How the ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ Post-Credits Scene Means for Wolverine 3

How the ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ Post-Credits Scene Means for Wolverine 3 by Antonio Ferme , May 26th, 2016 at 8:55pm Share on Facebook Share to TwitterTonight, I went to go see X-Men: Apocalypse for the first time. I did not set high expectations going into the film and I came out quite surprised at how much I did enjoy the movie. Was it an outstanding movie? No. Was it the best X-Men movie to date? Absolutely not. However, I thought it was a really entertaining film all around. The movie presented some really good things yet some really bad things. All in all, I would rank this slightly above the average comic book movie and either the third or fourth X-Men movie, and that’s not bad. It only looks bad when you have Captain America: Civil War , one of the best comic book movies ever (the best in my opinion), come out three weeks before it.One of the best parts of the movie was a cameo by Wolverine. We only saw him for a short time as we see him escape from the Weapon X lab, but it may have been the most violent we have ever seen him as he shreds apart men without even blinking. It was truly one of the more epic scenes we have seen in an X-Men film thus far. I think the cameo was very efficient getting us excited for the final Wolverine film. The best part is that it is rated-R. If Wolverine was this intense in a PG-13 movie, I cannot even imagine what it will be like to see him in an R-rated movie. However, this cameo wasn’t the only thing apart of the movie that set up for Wolverine 3.The Post-Credit SceneIn the X-Men: Apocalypse , we see cleaning crew cleaning up the mess Wolverine had trailed behind from his cameo appearance in Stryker’s Weapon X lab. A mysterious man in a suit looking at an X-ray of Wolverine’s adamantium skeleton and a “Weapon X” vial of blood and places both of them in his briefcase. Then, the logo on his briefcase is revealed as it reads “Essex Corp.” After the scene ended, two guys sitting behind me said “Only hardcore Marvel fans will understand that.” Well, he was right, as that was a huge reveal for who the villain is for Wolverine 3.Mr. Sinister Will Be the Villain for Wolverine 3Die-hard Marvel fans like myself will automatically pair Essex Corp with none other than the menacing Marvel villain Mr. Sinister aka Nathaniel Essex. Essex was a biologist in England who was obsessed with Darwin’s theory of evolution and developed advanced theories on human evolution. He felt Darwin and his generation were fettered by too many moral constraints. He has superhuman abilities with telekinesis powers. Professor X will also be along side Wolverine for the movie, so it does connect the two. On top of those powers, Mr. Sinister has the ability to implant the genes of other mutants into his own. That could definitely play out in a very interesting way.I originally predicted that Mr. Sinister would be the villain for the X-Force movie antagonist, which is still possible, but Bryan Singer has already proved with the X-Men: Days of Future Past post-credit scene that he likes to tease the upcoming villain for the next movie, which is Wolverine 3. Technically, that isn’t the next X-Men or X-Force movie as it is a solo movie. X-Men: Days of Future Pass didn’t set up Fan4stic or Deadpool but the next installment in the X-Men franchise: X-Men: Apocalypse . Either way, we will most likely be seeing Mr. Sinister pop up on the big screen soon and it is a very exciting thought.How did YOU guys like ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’?
