Hugh Jackman Killed Bryan Singer In X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

You probably didn't realize that director Bryan Singer has a brief scene in X-Men: Apocalypse and that the reason why it's very brief is because Hugh Jackman's Wolverine/Weapon X kills him without mercy.

While a guest on the Empire Spoiler Podcast with executive producer Simon Kinberg, director Bryan Singer revealed that he has a small cameo in the film.  His cameo is brief, as he's dispatched pretty quickly by Wolverine/Weapon X.  Singer begins discussing the scene and getting Jackman aboard at the 24:00 minute mark.  Below, we've included a quick transcription for those of you on mobile or tablet devices.

"I have a little cameo, I'm the guy with the machine gun..screaming. When I look at it, I couldn't recognize myself so I knew no one else could.  But it was cool to get killed by Wolverine.  It's now one of the many things I can put on my resume.  When went back later to film the Wolverine segment because Hugh was training for the next Wolverine sequel and we wanted him in a certain kind of shape.  At first, Hugh was reticent to do it, but once I explained it to him, what the scene is and why it's there, he agreed to do it over the phone, which is unusual.  Usually there's a bit of negotiation involved, but he said 'You can call my Agent, but I'm in, I love it.'"
