Default The Shadow King

I expect the odds of this to be low, but, if they're introducing Storm for the first time (and it seems some kind of Egyptian connection with Apocalypse), I'd love for Xavier to confront the Shadow King as Amahl Farouk. It would be a good way to touch on Storm's past. It doesn't have to take up a lot of the movie, but it would add an early scene of tension (and Xavier stardom) before we move on to the main plot.

Anyone else think this might be an ok idea (OK, I don't really have any pretenses that it's a great idea )?

We picked up on it earlier. It would be nice as a easter egg or intro point. I do see sinister probablybeing more involved tho

Sinister (while weird) probably could do well as a villain for his own movie,

Where'd you guys talk about Shadow King before?

Farouk should care of Apocalypse's temple in Egypt.

All in one movie? That seems a little crowded. The Shadow King at least seems small enough potatoes that you can use him without having to devote a movie to him. I'm sure the Horsemen will be in this movie.

My point is, if we're meeting Storm for the first time, they can show her origin story (since it'll probably be the only opportunity to do so).

Just to clarify, I don't think the Shadow King should get his own movie. I don't think he's important enough for that.

If Stryker can gET his own movie so can shadow king. In fact I'd rather see a shadow king movie before an omega red movie. The whole storm angle makes it deliciously personal plus his power set an d intelligence are more of a challenge to the xmen.
