Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzalez has posted another rumor from an unnamed source to his Instagram feed regarding Fox’s 2016 mutant movie, “X-Men: Apocalypse.” This new “#HOT #MARVEL #SCOOP” posits that a trio of actors will be included in Bryan Singer’s next X-Men film in a cameo capacity; Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry are rumored to return as Wolverine and Storm and — according to the rumor — Channing Tatum may make his debut as Gambit in the film.
With it’s 1980s setting and most likely lack of time travel, involvement from any of the original trilogy actors has so far seemed unlikely. Hugh Jackman has been assumed to be a part of the film, but the level of his involvement has yet to be clarified by the filmmakers or the actor. This is the first time that Berry’s name has been mentioned in regards to “Apocalypse”; Alexandra Shipp has already been cast in the film as a younger version of Storm. It’s been confirmed that Channing Tatum will star as Gambit in a solo feature film scheduled for release on October 7, 2016.
“X-Men: Apocalypse,” directed by Bryan Singer, is scheduled to begin filming soon — on April 28, according to the latest rumor. The film is due in theaters on May 27, 2016. You can check out Gonzalez’s Instagram post below.
