X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Director Bryan Singer Confirms That Mr. Sinister Will Appear In THE WOLVERINE 3

The X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits scene set up the introduction of Mr. Sinister, and now Bryan Singer has confirmed that the mutant geneticist will be one of the villains in the new Wolverine movie...

Fans have been waiting to see Mr. Sinister on the big screen for some time now, and we finally got a little tease of the character in the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits stinger when a vial of Wolverine's blood was collected by some well dressed Essex Corp. individuals. Most of us assumed this was setting up the villain for the next X-Men movie, but it looks like we'll be meeting him a lot sooner than that.

During the audio commentary on the Apocalypse Blu-ray release, Bryan Singer reportedly confirms that Sinister will be one of the antagonists in James Mangold's follow-up to The Wolverine. He doesn't elaborate, but it's not exactly a stretch to assume that Nathanial Essex's penchant for cloning will lead to the introduction of X-23, and possibly even a direct duplicate of Logan (Hugh Jackman). It might also pave the way for the formation of The Marauders, which in turn could tie-in with the Gambit movie... if it ever gets off the ground, that is!

As for who could be playing Sinister, out of the cast members we know of, Richard E. Grant's "mad scientist type" seems the most likely candidate, though Stephen Merchant is also a possibility.

What do you guys think of this news? Excited to finally see a live-action Mr. Sinister take on The Wolverine?
