Bryan Singer Confirms and Teases Caliban in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE
Director Bryan Singer has confirmed another mutant appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse. He released the behind-the-scenes photo below teasing revealing that the albino mutant named Caliban will be included in the story, and the photo reveals his "place of business."
Caliban was created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, and the character made his first appearance in Uncanny X-Men #148 back in 1981. Caliban is a Morlock who has a mutant tracking ability, and in the comics he was later enhanced by Apocalypse, making him one of En Sabah Nur’s Horsemen. He had a lot of anger and rage that he took out on his victims. I'm sure his role in the movie will focus on his relationship with Apocalypse. I'm curious to see what Singer actually has planned for this character in the story.
X-Men: Apocalypse will be released on May 27th, 2016.
