I want to be excited for this as Apocalypse is my favorite X-Villain but its Fox so I can't expect Apocalypse to look anything like his comic book countepart but I hope to be wrong...

Kinda hoping for Sinister as the after-credit cameo.

Sinister will probably come after the credits of Fantastic Four or Apocalypse. That's assuming it's not Cameron Hodge.

I believe it'll be Cable, Domino, Deadpool, Psylocke and one other.

Sinister should be in X-Force, before we have Apocalypse.

If we're wanting an Egyptian look, then the old standby, Arnold Vosloo, could work.

I really think I might be the only person on the Hype that doesn't hate Fox. I haven't seen The Wolverine yet, but the only X-Men movie I have really disliked was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and I only disliked the second half of that one.

Looks like Fox are steaming ahead with the X-Men movies before XMOFP is even out. Will that leave much room for FF?

I'm glad to see Apocalypse on the big screen though. I always thought he should be there eventually instead of constantly having Magneto.

Part of me now wishes they would've saved her for the Apocalypse movie.

I can only imagine if she does well and "survives" DOFP or something, that there still may be a way to use her in Apocalypse. Especially if she becomes an audience favorite - and from the newcomers, she seems like she has the most chance.

Not only do we only need one version of Cable but we also don't need a character who's an incredibly powerful psychic with a connection to the phoenix force with no weaknesses. This is also taking into account that Cable will most likely be introduced in the same film and if Stryfe gets introduced at a later date, than that's THREE Cables running around.

Now even getting past the fact that he's an overpowered version of an existing character, Cable himself has the same powers as his mother. Granted, they have different personalities and different weaknesses so they both stand out and neither is a Mary Sue. Rachael Summers (who is both a female Cable and a younger Jean Grey) comes close to Sue territory since she has the control over the Phoenix Force that both Cable and Jean struggle with but she avoids being a true sue by having a nasty temper and having her psychic powers be slightly weaker than both Cable and Jean to compensate for stronger Phoenix powers.

This brings the total to FIVE Jean Greys (the other four of which have more to offer in terms of plots and character development than X-Man does) running around with one just being a carbon copy who can kill most villains with a single thought, has full control over the Phoenix Force and lacks any true weaknesses. I'd rather see somebody like Maggot, Forearm or Nurse Annie than have X-Man appear. He's a horrible character and is best left forgotten.

Wow, Wow, WOW, since being a teenager and watching the X-Men animated series I have wanted to see Apocalypse on the big screen, he was my favourite villain in TAS and is still a big favourite today.

Never thought I would see him with the way the X-Men movies have been going, I am 31 years of age yet feel like a school kid at this moment, I couldnt be happier!

Oh, and I know he gets suggested for a lot of comic book roles, but Idris Elba would make an amazing Apocalypse.

Did I mention that Nate Grey also bangs his own mom? Like, that's really kind of gross. Does that count as a weakness?
